Akki is known for completing his films in one or maximum two schedules, while Priyan too prefers to complete his films at a stretch, in one long schedule. Their new outing, De Dana Dan, was completed in a non-stop schedule in Singapore, with a few days' shooting in Mumbai. Now Akki and Priyan's new endeavour, Khatta Meetha, which went on floors a few days ago, is already 50% complete.
50% complete already? "Of course, don't you know Priyan shoots his films at a feverish pace? Starting at 7 in the morning and shooting till late in the evening, he wraps his films in a record time, thus making it so easy for his producers," Akshay Kumar tells me.
The unit is currently stationed in Satara and would head to Pune later. "Hopefully, we should be able to wrap the entire shooting before the year-end," Akki adds. Which means, Akki will have three films ready for release in the first half of 2010 – Action Replay, Housefull and Khatta Meetha. That's great!
Akshay Kumar works at a lightening speed. So does Priyadarshan. What happens when Akki and Priyan, two workaholics, get together? Simple, the movie gets completed at the speed of a missile.
