Bollywood superstar, Akshay Kumar, makes Canadian Prime Minister’s wife dance!!
Cineplex Silvercity, Brampton, Ontario, Canada witnessed a scintillating and unforgettable evening with the perfect marriage of politics and cinema on Friday 8th April, as Bollywood screen icon Akshay Kumar premiered his latest blockbuster release, ‘Thank You’.
Superstar Akshay dedicated ‘Thank You’ to the Canadian Prime Minister, Stephen Harper, who was in attendance at the glamorous event. While Akshay was interacting with Mr. Harper and meeting and greeting the hoards of excited fans that had turned out for the event, Punjabi music blared in the background, adding to the action-packed atmosphere of the evening.
The highlight however, was the Prime Minister’s wife Laureen Harper’s dance performance with Akshay to the popular peppy track 'Pyaar Do Pyaar Lo', an already iconic music number from the film which has been championing the music charts for weeks. In preparation, Laureen had viewed the song picturisation on YouTube, to memorise the steps. Together, the First Lady of Canada and the leading man of Bollywood shook their hands and moved their hips in coordination to the high charged beats, making it an event to remember for all those in attendance.
Akshay Kumar was delighted to be premiering his latest cinematic offering in Brampton, as the romantic comedy was filmed in Canada. Furthermore, the actor shares a very special relationship with the country and was recently appointed by Canadian Tourism Commission (CTC) as their Ambassador for India for the second year running. Produced by UTV Motion Pictures and Hari Om Entertainment Company, ‘Thank You’ is a film that lifts the lid on extramarital affairs.
Maestro of comedy Akshay Kumar is at the helm of a powerhouse of screen talent that includes fellow stars Sonam Kapoor, Bobby Deol, Irrfan Khan, Suneil Shetty, Celina Jaitley and Rimi Sen in a battle of the sexes which transforms matrimony to acrimony. After the staggering Box Office success of ‘Singh is Kinng’ and the earlier ‘Welcome’, superstar Akshay Kumar has teamed up once more with much-loved comedy director Anees Bazmee.
‘Thank You’ is an honest film about dishonesty which will be loved by and identifiable to audiences, continuing with the signature style we have come to expect from the winning combination of Akshay Kumar and Anees Bazmee. #
