Actor Akshay Kumar turned crowd controller in Delhi, when the crew of his upcoming film Boss had a tough time keeping onlookers at bay who had gathered in large numbers to catch a glimpse of the action hero.
Recently, some of the action sequences were shot in the
bustling Chandni Chowk and Jama Masjid area in the national
capital. Since both are very densely populated areas, the
chaos created by the crowd during the film shoot threw the
security arrangements out of gear.
When Akshay realised this, he decided to do his own bit
for controlling the crowd.
"The shootings were happening all day long and thousands
had gathered to witness him (Akshay) in action. Even 100-odd
private security personnel and several policemen couldn't
control the crowd. Akshay then had to wave to the audience and
request them to calm down," sources said.
Directed by Anthony D'souza, the film stars Akshay Kumar,
Mithun Chakraborty, Shiv Pandit, Aditi Rao Hydari along with
Danny Denzongpa, Ronit Roy and Johnny Lever.
The film is set to release this year on October 16.
