Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai Dobaara hasn’t exactly set the cash registers ringing at the box office, but Akshay Kumar was gracious enough to call his producer Ekta Kapoor and even offered to return half his acting fee to cover up for the losses that the film has incurred.
DNA India quotes an industry insider as saying “Akshay, who is currently shooting in Bangkok (for TIPS film It’s Entertainment), called her two days ago and graciously offered to return half of his remuneration to cover up for the losses she incurred over OUATIMD. Ekta was touched with his offer but declined, saying she didn’t want money back but she wanted to do another film with him.”
Akshay agreed to do the film and the two are likely to work together soon.
A local daily had recently reported that Ekta wasn’t too pleased with Akshay’s ‘lack of interest’ in the pre-release campaign. Apparently, the actor didn’t allot as many days for the film’s promotions as Ekta would have liked.
Well, all’s well that ends well. Here’s wishing both Ekta and Akshay better luck with their second film together!
