How Kat saves Akki
Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif

Ever since he made his debut with Saugandh, Akshay Kumar has always been associated with dare-devil stunts, whether jumping from sky-scrapers or hanging from helicopters. Usually his adventures have always been aimed to rescue damsels in distress. But in a role reversal of sorts, for his forthcoming biggie Welcome, Akshay will be seen rescued by Katrina Kaif.

In a very wacky scene in the film Akshay jumps into the fire to save Katrina, but he is so afraid that he faints. Katrina then lifts Akshay and gets him out of the fire.
Says producer Firoz Nadiadwala: “Anees Bazmee, the director, conceived this hilarious scene. In fact, while shooting for the scene, we were apprehensive of Akshay jumping into the fire since it was risky. But Akshay being Akshay just jumped into the fire. He even got his right hand burnt but he didn’t tell us. We got to know about it once the shooting was over.”

It has been a dream year for Akshay with big hits like Namastey London, Heyy Babyy and Bhool Bhulaiyaa under his belt. We have to wait till tomorrow to find out whether Welcome is added to the list.
