Superstar Akshay Kumar plays a footballer with Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID) in "Housefull 3." What many do not know is he transforms into an evil person when a certain phrase is uttered.
According to a Times of India report, Sandy's (Akshay) only dream is to play in the English Premier League. What comes in the way is his disorder. Sandy's British coach is racist and often calls him "You Indian," which pushes the wrong buttons, turning him into Sundy, the bad guy.
Akshay, whose comic timing is impeccable, said it was tough playing the character. But that doesn't mean he didn't get to have fun. He was the one playing pranks on the actresses, Nargis Fakhri told Catch News.
This one time, he sprayed water on Lisa Haydon's back while pretending to sneeze. For quite some time, the actress thought it was his saliva and mucus. "Akshay Kumar, Ritiesh Deshmukh and Abhishek Bachchan are so funny. Akshay played a lot of pranks while shooting for the film. We were three girls on the set, and Lisa was the one who always used to get pranked by Akshay," the web portal quoted Nargis as saying.
In other news, Akshay is hopeful that the third instalment will work at the box office. He said the team is keeping its fingers crossed. "We'll come to know if it's a hat-trick... it would be good if people like our third attempt with Housefull 3, because then it serves as motivation for fourth and fifth films. We will be looking forward to see how the business is, we keep our fingers crossed so that everything goes well," he told IANS.
Directed by Sajid-Farhad, "Housefull 3" hits the theatres on June 3. The comic caper also features Jacqueline Fernandez, Boman Irani and Chunky Pandey.
