Akshay Kumar made a special appearance in ‘Dishoom’ in which he apparently played a gay character, who was lusting after the characters of Varun Dhawan and John Abraham. We haven’t seen the film yet, it is said that it’s the scene that is seen in the trailer; the one in the end where Varun and John are standing in the pool in their speedos or something like that. People everywhere enjoyed his cameo in the film. If you remembered, Akshay Kumar was in Rohit Dhawan’s first film, which was ‘Desi Boyz’. It’s not really a surprise to us, if all the rumours are true about Akshay’s real job when he was in Thailand. Of course, these are just rumours so we don’t really know for sure. But here’s Akshay speaking about his small cameo in ‘Dishoom’.
UPDATE: Here’s the video below.
Akshay Kumar Interview
Akshay Kumar on his small role in ‘Dishoom’
Honestly, I wasn’t afraid even for a second. I was, however, hoping the world would embrace my character. As for my image, I’m fully aware I’ve been a gay icon in India for many years now. If I can be loved by the gay fraternity why shouldn’t I portray one in good faith for all their love and support over the years? I can only hope the gay community is as happy as I am to have done this. This really could have gone either way, but I’m so glad it’s been accepted by everyone, the world is finally changing for the better!
Akshay Kumar on whether it’s a big deal for top actors to play gay characters
No. At the point, I didn’t! Now that my Bumfie (aka belfie) is well and truly out there. I’ve been hearing that I really might be a first among my generation to do such a role, and you know what, being proud of one’s decisions is what makes your choices infectious… Gay, straight, fat or thin, we are what we are, and I was proud to play a gay character finally in my career. But the incredible response I’ve received from so many people is what makes this so amazing. All I can say is — thanks for the unconditional love.
Akshay Kumar on hanging out with John Abraham and Varun Dhawan
Well, the day I walked onto the sets in Dubai slaying my kilt and man-bun, was the day John Abraham looked at me in a different light. After all, we’ve been through, he thought there were no surprises left. Both he and Varun showed me a lot of love, which I happily returned by sitting on their laps and pulling their leg the entire day. We share more than just good times, we even share our sushi. It kind of gutted me that my cameo was so short because I could have hung out with these beefcakes forever!
