It’s been a while since we’ve seen Akshaye Khanna on screen. He’s one of the most underrated actors we have in Bollywood and I really wish we’d see a lot more of him. I’ve loved him right from the time I saw him in Taal. Fun Fact: I’ve watched that movie over 50 times. Anyway, his upcoming film Ittefaq has been grabbing eyeballs not only because of it’s intriguing plot line but because of their no-promotions marketing strategy!
Yup, they’ve stayed away from typical movie promotions like song launches, interviews, city visits etc., and have decided to let the trailer speak for itself. It’ll be interesting to see how this does because a lot of actors find promotions taxing, and if this does deliver, it could just be a game-changer.
As part of their ‘promotions’, Karan Johar, who is the producer of the film, had a little chat with the cast of the film and asked Akshaye who he thinks is the sexiest woman in the industry. He quickly took Aishwarya Rai Bachchan‘s name and had the cutest explanation for it.
I can’t take my eyes off her every time I meet her. I have done two films with her. She might be used to be people looking at her. For me, it’s embarrassing. I am not used to not being able to take my eyes off somebody. You just keep staring at her like a lunatic.
Haha. Aww! Sonakshi Sinha too agreed with him.
Not only guys. Even I am not able to take my eyes off her. She is damn stunning.
