Ak­shay Ku­mar was in for a sweet sur­prise when a young fan con­fessed her love for him dur­ing a ses­sion of HT City Stars In the City. “I have been in love with you since I was a child. It’s like I have dated so many guys try­ing to see if some­one matches up to you,” said the 20-some­thing girl, adding, “In fact, when you got mar­ried to Twin­kle (Khanna), I de­cided to be­come an ac­tress and make you di­vorce her. I love you Ak­shay.” And the 47-year-old ac­tor played a sport, and replied, “I love you too my dar­ling. It takes a lot of courage for some­one to con­fess their feel­ings in public. Thank you for the love.” Jac­que­line Fer­nan­dez who was ac­com­pa­ny­ing Akki, and ac­tor Sid­dharth Mal­ho­tra, spoke about how there is this mis­con­cep­tion that Ak­shay is a prankster. “It is weird be­cause when any­one meets me, they’re like, “‘Ohhh you know, Ak­shay is such a prankster’, and I am like, ‘No, what are you talk­ing about? He didn’t play any pranks on me’. He is not a prankster, he is a funny guy,” said Jackky.

Ac­tors Ak­shay Ku­mar, Sid­harth Mal­ho­tra and Jac­que­line Fer­nan­dez shared tid­bits from the sets of their up­com­ing film, when they came to HT House in New Delhi to meet the win­ners of the HT City Stars In The City con­test. In a con­ver­sa­tion with Sonal Kalra, Na­tional Editor — En­ter­tain­ment and Lifestyle, Hin­dus­tan Times, the ac­tors talked about pickup lines, mar­tial arts, and also cut a cake for Jackky who turned a year older on Au­gust 11.

What is the worst pick-up line a girl has ever used on you?

Sid­harth: I think boys use them more than girls. I haven’t been lucky enough for girls to use pick-up lines on me. In Delhi, girls like be­ing wooed by boys rather than woo­ing boys. So, I think the worst is when you’re try­ing to hit on a girl and be­ing re­ally nice, and she ends up call­ing you ‘bhai’. In col­lege, it hap­pened to me a lot of times.

Ak­shay, we all know that you have al­ready set up a mar­tial arts train­ing school in Mum­bai, Any such plans for Delhi?

Ak­shay: When you set up a train­ing school, you need to be there your­self. Since I am liv­ing in Mum­bai, it won’t be con­ve­nient for me to open it in Delhi. Also, one needs space for start­ing such an in­sti­tute, which I don’t have here. Even in Mum­bai, I’ve been sup­ported by some­one in start­ing the mar­tial arts school. Hav­ing said that, I would love to open a school in the Cap­i­tal in the fu­ture if I get a chance.

Jac­que­line, it takes a lot of courage for a glam­orous, beau­ti­ful girl like you to go in for a no make-up look in the en­tire film. What made you do this?

I was ac­tu­ally not aware that Karan Mal­ho­tra ( the di­rec­tor of the film) will be that strict with me about the makeup. I thought I would look pretty and glam­orous in the film. It’s def­i­nitely not some­thing I’m used to on­screen, but I have to say that it was one the most lib­er­at­ing ex­pe­ri­ences I’ve ever had in my ca­reer. I am so proud of the char­ac­ter that we have cre­ated ( she plays Ak­shay’s wife in the film).
