8x10 Tasveer is in the eye of a storm. In fact, the film has been surrounded by controversies from Day 1. There's talk that Akshay Kumar isn't too happy with the film and isn't keen on promoting it. Of course, he did attend a press conference on Friday night at Marriott along with director Nagesh Kukunoor and Shailendra Singh of Percept, but he isn't going out of his way to endorse the film, like he normally does.
"Absolutely untrue," Nagesh tells me, "Frankly, I've stopped reacting to rumours. But I'd like to clarify that there's no truth to it. Akshay watched the film some time back and is gung ho about it. I'd love to work with him again."
But there were problems initially. "Yes, Akshay had a tough time on the first four days, I won't deny that. But, later, when he got used to my style of working and also realised what I wanted, there were no problems at all," Nagesh says.
