Actors Akshay Kumar and Sara Ali Khan attended the Kapil Sharma Show to promote their film Atrangi Re. Comedian Kapil Sharma has done several playful digs at Akshay’s Sooryavanshi promotions and asked if Sara had ever taken her father Saif Ali Khan’s advice for working with Akshay. There were also several jokes about Akshay working with Taimur after Sara and Saif.
Kapil mentioned that Katrina Kaif’s name in Sooryavanshi was Rhea Sooryavanshi, and mentioned that Sara’s name in Atrangi Re was Rinku Sooryavanshi. “How long are you going to keep promoting Sooryavanshi?” Akshay gave the example of making cane and said that until he got all the juice out of the movie, he would continue to promote the movie.
Kapil Sharma also gave Akshay a fun dig for the money he made from his recent series of films. Akshay responded by asking the audience, “Now you all know, why am I calling him CA?” He knows my money. He knows how much I have to take from people.
Akshay plays a magician in Atrangi Re. Kapil then asked if he made all of the producers’ money disappear, which left Akshay and Sara separated. Akshay responded by quoting the Geetha, “What is yours today is mine tomorrow.” Kapil then asked if Akshay had ever done any magic tricks for his children’s parties at home. The actor replied, “If there are a few, I become a magician. But if there are more, I call from outside.
Akshay Kumar worked with Sara’s dad, actor Saif Ali Khan in many films, in the 90s. Kapil Sharma if she ever asked Saif for advice, like never being late on sets. So Sara replied, “I already knew that, so I didn’t need that tip.” But he told me I would have a lot of fun, which I got on sets. Sara then recalled how Akshay gave her “lassan” (garlic), claiming it was prasad (sacred candy). Akshay retaliated, “Did you feel bad? Have you fallen ill? Sara replied: “A little!” Akshay continued, “Swear on your career you ate it.” Sara changed tracks, “I would have felt sick if I had eaten it!” “
Kapil then asked Akshay, as he worked with Saif and now Sara, which of the two generations was better prepared. “I think this generation is better prepared. When we arrived we weren’t that prepared. We were learning and gaining experience, after 60-70 films we gained experience. These people seem to have it already, by the time they step into showbiz.
