Model-turned-actress Lisa Haydon, who shares screen space with Akshay Kumar in upcoming film The Shaukeens, says in her initial years in Bollywood she used to watch the Khiladi star's films to learn Hindi.
Akshay will do a cameo as himself in The Shaukeens and the 28-year-old Queen actress plays the role of a crazy fan of the Bollywood star.
"I still can't believe that I am doing a film with Akshay. I am a fan but not a crazy one like a play in the movie. If he knew I was psycho, he would never work with me. There is so much respect for him. When I was learning Hindi, I used to watch his films because he speaks the language so well," Lisa told PTI.
The Shaukeens is a remake of the 1982 film Shaukeen directed by Basu Chatterjee.
The new film stars Anupam Kher, Piyush Mishra and Annu Kapoor, who lust after a much younger girl played by Lisa. The movie has been directed by Abhishek Sharma and produced by Akshay. It will hit theatres on November 7.
