Filmmaker Vipul Amrutlal Shah’s Action Replayy starring Akshay Kumar and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan completed 10 years on November 5 this year. The producer-director admits that it was an amazing experience shooting with Akshay and Aishwarya, along with great cast and crew, which he will cherish forever! The storyline of the film is based in the ’70s and has entertained the audience to the fullest making it a must-watch film.
Recollecting an incident that happened on sets, Vipul shares, “The unfortunate thing that happened was that Akshay was staying in a bungalow that we had hired for him and we had put the pull-up bar because Akshay is an exercise freak. But the pull-up bar gave away, Akshay fell on his back and got injured very badly.”
Talking about how the injury didn’t affect Akshay’s work, Vipul further adds, “In spite of injuring his back within one hour he reported on the set and continued shooting. So that was the fantastic memory that I had about the film and Akshay is always a great character on set, he loves to keep the set light-hearted, fun, energetic and positive. Also, because we had done four films before we had a great comfort.”
“Ash coming in made it even more interesting, so we had a great time shooting the film. With some memorable songs, the film had very unusual music so it was great fun,” concludes the director.
