Akshay Kumar has been under the weather since the past two weeks. The actor known for his fitness and disciplined life has been suffering from a viral infection.
Probably for the first time in his 20-year-old career, he had to cancel the shoot of a film, which is his co-production with Himesh Reshammiya. (Read: Akshay Kumar leaps from 45 feet without any safety equipment)
Not so lucky
However, he just couldn't take time off from his other home production, starring Paresh Rawal, as it wasn't possible to change the busy actor's dates. With his Bollywood timetable looking pretty crammed and his father-in-law seriously ill, it looks like Akshay's is having a sort of a crisis in his life right now.
A friend of Akshay said, "Thankfully for Akshay, he lives a very disciplined life. He gives utmost importance to his diet and his workout secessions or else the kind of crazy work he does, it would have affected his health. Akshay is probably the only superstar who has as many as four to five releases every year." (Read: Rowdy Rathore's box-office success fuels sequel talk )
Too many commitments?
The friend added, "Akshay will be heading to Singapore soon for a couple of shows and to shoot an ad film. After that, he will finally take three days off with his family. He is also looking to shift back to his newly renovated house from the five-star hotel he has been staying in for the time being. Plus, also the promotional plans around his film with Shirish Kunder remains to be chalked out."
Akshay Kumar's father-in-law Rajesh Khanna too has been seriously ill over the past few months, and recently had to be hospitalised. While Akshay and his wife Twinkle have been at Rajesh Khanna's bedside, there is a chance that all this is taking a toll on the actor's health. Akshay and Twinkle are also expecting their second child in September this year.
On the anvil
A source said, "Akshay will be starting two more films this year, which includes the much-hyped sequel of Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai
and AR Murugadoss's Tamil remake." (Read: Akshay to work with Ghajini director in Thuppakki remake )
