During his recent visit on The Kapil Sharma Show, Akshay Kumar received an interesting request from a member of the crowd. A woman requested to talk with Shah Rukh Khan, her favourite actor, and urged Akshay to phone him and make it happen.
Though Akshay attempted to fulfil the fan’s demand by calling Shah Rukh, his phone was switched off. The fan still requested saying, “Sir, doosre number pe call karo (please try an alternate number),” to this host Kapil Sharma joked, “Shah Rukh Khan PCO mein kaam karte hai (Does Shah Rukh Khan work at a public call office)?”
Akshay tried a another phone number, but it wasn’t available too. Vaani Kapoor and Huma Qureshi, who were also present, were left speechless when a fan recommended that he phone Gauri Khan.
“Saari baat aap pe aayegi. Gauri bhabhi bolengi, ‘Akshay ji aap bigaad rahe hai humare pati ko’ (The blame will come on you. Gauri will say that you are spoiling Shah Rukh),” Kapil joked, before adding, “So sweet of you, paaji.”
To promote the film, Akshay appeared on The Kapil Sharma Show with his BellBottom co-stars Vaani, Huma, and producer Jackky Bhagnani. They were one of the show’s first guests in the new season.
