Akshay does not take his stardom for granted: Huma Qureshi
Actor Huma Qureshi (far right) hopes to imbibe the discipline and hardwork from co-star Akshay Kumar (right), who she says, puts in his best while working.
The two star together in the upcoming film, Jolly LLB 2, and Huma says Akki works without any star trappings on the sets. “One always feels that superstars tend to take their success for granted, but not with him (Akshay). I’ve seen him work really hard for our film and I’m sure he does that for each of his films,” says Huma. “He does four films in a year. I hope to imbibe some sense of discipline and how he manages to spend time with his family, children, how involved he is. I want to be that great a multi-tasker in that sense,” added the 30-year-old.
The courtroom-dramacomedy is a sequel to the 2013 film Jolly LLB which starred Arshad Warsi and Amrita Rao in the lead roles.
Huma says that while working with Akshay, 49, was an enriching experience, there were times when the actor played pranks on her as well. “He took my phone and messaged three heroes that I love them, I want to marry them. Then I had to call everyone and say I’m really sorry it was a prank. They laughed when they got to know Akshay had done that.”
