Akshay Kumar survives freak truck accident

Not for nothing has the prefix of ‘Khiladi’ been given to Bollywood superstar Akshay Kumar. The actor, while shooting for A.R Murugadoss’ remake of Thuppakki, survived a freak truck accident that could have been fatal.

Luckily, Akshay escaped with just minor injuries as the truck passed over his foot while the actor was shooting for an action sequence.

A source present on the sets tells us “We were shooting for an action sequence, when Akshay escaped a speeding truck. Unfortunately for him, his foot was caught under the wheels of the truck. He was taken to the nearby Kokilaben Ambani Hospital immediately. After checkups and x-rays, which revealed no major injury or fracture, Akshay was discharged at around 4:30 in the evening.”

Here’s wishing Akshay a speedy recovery!

Update: We’ve been informed that Akshay is back on the sets, shooting for the film!

    when the news came of ce trailor is coming on may 26.immediately ekta announced ,outima trailor in coming with yjhd.

  • Thank god…he is safe nd there r no serious casualties …..!!!! Praying for sooner recovery of akki….the best action hero in bollywood…not like some freaks….who used to get the support of duplicates in 90% of shoots nd then claiming themselves as action hero….!!!!

  • akshay has become old, now he can’t do action scenes. he should concentrate himself character roles

  • Akshay is the original action hero of bollywood,nothing wil happen to him.if any other star is these in that place.their bodydoubles wil be there in hospital.

  • Thank god hes safe and rwcovers quickly. God bless and all the best.

    @xrated xzone Yeah you must be talking about Srk who uses duplicates not just for action scenes but also for lovemaking scenes, like the 10 sec lovemaking scene in JTHJ with Kat for example…! :-)

  • outima will be a sureshot blockbuster.
    it will collect atleast 150cr because of clash.otherwise it will be more than that

  • @navin…everybody knows who uses duplicates stuntmen for each smaller scene…..in his 50’s , he needs to take a rest, otherwise he may get spinal injury, which ll destroy his fake stardom as well….

    bcoz wat he can do is only action nd masala genre….nd if he looses these two, then i don’t think anyone will go to cinemas to watch him.

  • he’s the only actor in last 22 yrs of bollywood history, for not using any stunt doubles!! he’ll be fit n fine for another 15 years.

  • @xzone: You started barking again. This is Akki’s page, if you have guts them come to srk or Salman articles page. Dont bark on every single article.
