The actor known for his fitness and disciplined life has been suffering from a viral infection and probably for the first time in his 20-year-old career, he had to cancel the shoot of a film, Khiladi 786, which is his co-production with Himesh Reshammiya.
Not so lucky However, he just couldn’t take time off from his other home production OMG Oh My God, starring Paresh Rawal, as it wasn’t possible to change the busy veteran actor’s dates. With his Bollywood timetable looking pretty crammed and his father-in-law Rajesh Khanna seriously ill, it looks like Akki’s is having a sort of a crisis in his life right now.

He gives utmost importance to his diet and his workout secessions or else the kind of crazy work he does, it would have affected his health.

Akshay Kumar was a victim of an occupational hazard. The actor, who was shooting a fight sequence in heavy rain for two consecutive days for Rowdy Rathore, came down with a fever as a result. In fact, Mumbai Mirror has learnt that after shooting the 17 scenes at the under-construction site in Mulund, he fell so ill on Wednesday evening that the shoot scheduled for the following day had to be canceled.
A unit member explained, “Akshay was shooting an action sequence, in which he had to fight 40 men in very rainy weather. He was wet and had to continue shooting for 12 hours at a stretch. That’s how he caught a temperature. Director Prabhu Deva was informed later that night that Akki had taken ill and would not be able to shoot on Thursday. ”
The shoot has tentatively been rescheduled to Friday, as it is subject to Akshay’s health.
Both, Akshay Kumar and Prabhu Deva were unavailable for comment.
