Aakash Dabhade was first seen working with Akshay Kumar in BOSS that released in 2013, a remake of a South Indian hit film. Akki while watching a cricket match had first seen Aakash in a Nokia advertisement. The ad became super hit and had a successful run on TV. After seeing Aakash’s performance in the ad Khiladi Kumar decided to cast him in a pivotal role of Vishal Pradhan, a son of a Home minister (Govind Namdeo) in the film. This gave Aakash the identity as the BOSS actor in Bollywood.
Post the movie, Aakash also shot for an advertisement with the superstar in Bangkok. Now Aakash will be seen working with Akshay Kumar in a multi-starrer film Housefull 4 again for the third time. The duo shot in London for their scenes. This also marks Aakash's first film with Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment.
When quizzed Aakash about how is it working with Akshay Kumar? He said, “When you work with Akshay Kumar sir there are no dull moments on set. There are so many things I have learnt from Akshay Kumar sir, I remember when we were shooting for Boss, I reached on set at 6 o clock in the morning and asked the assistant director when is Akshay Kumar sir coming, he said Akshay Kumar sir is already ready in the van. As a professional, there are many things we can learn from Akshay sirs lifestyle and fitness.”
Aakash fondly remembers his first-ever award for a dance performance on stage at the age of 7 was incidentally on 'Tu cheez Badi hai mast mast' which happens to be Akshay Kumar's hit song from Mohra and Aakash was dressed up like Akshay.
We wish the very talented and versatile actor all the very best for Housefull 4 and all his upcoming movies. It is slated to release on Diwali on October 26, 2019.
