The actor has been currently shooting for Sooryavanshi in Bangkok which holds a special place in his heart since he has worked there for many years before he started his acting career.
"I always have a lot of fun doing my own stunts. Rohit is anyway a class apart when it comes to action in his films. And doing these bike stunts on the streets of Bangkok was extra special. Many years back I would ride a bike in Bangkok to deliver food. Now I am doing the same all over again, to earn my food." stated Akshay Kumar, who is teaming up with director Rohit Shetty for the first time.
For Akshay, Bangkok holds a lot of memories. He had studied martial arts in Bangkok, Thailand, where he learned Muay Thai and worked as a chef and a waiter.
