Apparently Akshay had made it clear that he wouldn"t be any part of the games although pals Preity Zinta and Shilpa Shetty were involved. But Delhi did the trick for Akshay.
“I had no intentions of going. But the Delhi Daredevils did it. Although this year I"m no longer professionally or financially associated with the team I had to go for their sake to the IPL match on Sunday. There I met up with my buddy Preity Zinta and naturally the cameras went berserk. So what if her team was playing against the Delhi Daredevils? Off the field we"re still the best of friends. But that"s it. I won"t be attending any of the other matches."
Akshay is now in Singapore to resume the shooting of Priyadarshan"s Dan Dana Dan “Somehow I"ve always had one Darshan or the other in my life," he quips about the contribution of Suneel & Dharmesh Darshan and Priyadarshan to his career. “I keep telling Vipul to change his name to Vipul Darshan."
So it back to comedy for AK? “If I do something different like Tasveer, people have a problem. If I do comedy people have a problem.What should I do?"
“First it was actress Preity Zinta"s darshan now I go for Priyadarshan," joked actor Akshay Kumar from South Africa where after suddenly attending an IPL match he was off to Singapore to shoot Dan Dana Dan with Priyadarshan. If after vowing not to be any part of the IPL in South Africa Akshay Kumar was seen at the IPL match in Cape Town last Sunday it was because of Delhi.
