- "I won at ludo twice against Akshay sir," tweeted Pooja Hegde
- "One of my greatest achievements!" she added
- "Hold onto that record tight," wrote Akshay
Akshay Kumar's Kesari co-star Parineeti Chopra's tweet about settling a 'debt' to Akshay Kumar made way for a barrage of complaints (all in good humour, of course) from the likes of Riteish Deshmukh and Huma Qureshi. It is not unknown that Akshay Kumar is the life and soul of every film set he works on. And it appears he loves to play games in between shoots. Now, while Parineeti, Riteish and Huma admittedly lost money to the undefeatable Akshay, there's someone who did the impossible. While Riteish and Huma were trolling Akshay on Twitter yesterday, Pooja Hegde, who co-stars with Akshay in Housefull 4 tagged the 52-year-old actor and wrote: "There was one beautiful day though, where I won at ludo twice against Akshay sir. One of my greatest achievements!"
But Akshay Kumar will not have his record beaten. Replying to Pooja, he declared war and tweeted: "Hold onto that record tight, Housefull 4 promotions coming up shortly." Read their tweets here:
But looks like Pooja Hegde has accepted defeat ahead of the game only:
Riteish Deshmukh may harbour a secret desire to win back all that he lost to Akshay Kumar but decided against it because: "the odds are not in my favour."
Huma Qureshi, who worked with Akshay in Jolly LLB 2, would very much want her money back. Here's her "genuine koshchen."
Over the weekend, Parineeti Chopra opted for a public declaration of the fact that she's paid her due sum to Akshay Kumar and later, tweeted: "Sigh. Spending time with Akshay sir is extremely expensive."
Akshay Kumar will next be seen in Kesari, which is based on the Battle of Saragarhi, 1897. Akshay Kumar plays the role of Havildar Ishar Singh, who leads a contingent of 21 Sikh soldiers of the British Indian Army against 10,000 Afghan invaders.
