Bollywood superstar Akshay Kumar provided some off-camera comedy capers recently when the superstar was involved in a curious mix-up on the set of his new film OMG (Oh My God). Akshay, who stars as a modern-day Lord Krishna in the film, as well as having produced the project, was shooting a beautiful and poignant sequence for a song entitled Mere Nishaan from the film OMG (Oh My God) in the same location of Hampi, where he had just completed his blockbuster film Rowdy Rathore.
Akshay loved the picturesque locale of Hampi so much, that he requested his good friend and ‘Rowdy’ director Prabhudeva to shoot the extra scenes at the idyllic spot for the song Mere Nishaan.
As filming got underway, and Akshay transformed into his character of Lord Krishna complete with rousing emotion and full-costume, he forgot one small, vital detail – that he was still wearing his famed moustache from Rowdy Rathore!
Always a good sport, Akshay recently shared the blooper footage online. He said of it: ‘Sharing an exclusive footage with you’ll from the song Mere Nishaan from OMG (Oh My God), which also happens to be my personal favourite. While I was shooting for Rowdy Rathore in Hampi, we decided to shoot some portions of Mere Nishaan as well since we had time. All went well but it was only after the shoot that my director, Prabhudeva and I realised that we’d forgotten to remove the fake moustache!’
