Who says film promotions are boring? The actors always take some time out to have some fun of their own, and that’s exactly what the cast of ‘Mission Mangal’ has been doing. The ensemble cast is seen doing all sorts of crazy things. After Sonakshi Sinha applied make-up on Akshay Kumar’s face, this time Vidya Balan shared a video of Akshay Kumar singing the classic song “Chal Chal Mere Bhai” by Mohammad Rafi!
“Chal chal chal mere bhai kal Picture release ho rahi hai,” wrote Vidya Balan while captioning the post on Instagram. The actor can be seen crooning the tunes along with actress Nithya Menen by his side. Akshay Kumar is singing in all his sincerity, putting in dedicated efforts to hum the tunes of the classic number. Nithya Menen and Vidya Balan cannot control their laughter on seeing his attempt at singing! The trio were apparently playing the song game Antakshari, thus Vidya Balan shared another video of the songs that they crooned to. “Antariksh se Antakshari tak ka safar” wrote Vidya Balan on Instagram sharing the second video.
Another hilarious incident happened at the Mission Mangal press conference, where a reporter had put his phone on the table in front of the star cast to record bytes from the event. The cast was talking about the film when the reporter’s phone began ringing, and much to the surprise of everyone, Akshay Kumar actually answered the phone on his behalf!
On being prompted to do so by Taapsee Pannu, Akshay Kumar picked up the phone and received the call. A certain ‘Mr. Krishna’ was calling on the journalists’ phone, whose call Akshay picked up and even spoke to. “Krishna ji, hum log press conference mein hain. Main Akshay Kumar bol raha hun,” said Akshay Kumar to the surprised voice at the other end. He further said that the owner of the phone would call him back. This made everyone at the press conference roll with laughter. Followers commented on Instagram complimenting Akshay Kumar’s “funny bone”.
Mission Mangal releases on August 15, and has an ensemble star cast comprising Akshay Kumar, Taapsee Pannu, Sonakshi Sinha, Vidya Balan, Kirti Kulhari, Nithya Menen, and Sharman Joshi.
