In a candid conversation with Kareena Kapoor Khan, on a scintillating episode of What Women Want, Bhumi Pednekar admitted that when she met Akshay Kumar for the first time, she was extremely intimidated. She recalls carrying a protein shake that day and Akshay Kumar lectured her on how her generation doesn’t value their health. He went on to tell her that she won’t survive for long if she takes these synthetic things and that really traumatized her. Bhumi also opened up about how Akshay went on to becoming her favorite co-star saying, “He’s just a blast to work with. He’s all about happy vibes and maze se shoot karo”.
