Prithviraj Sukumaran on working with Akshay Kumar

Sukumaran told us, “I don’t know how people know Akshay sir as a man out of the cinema, he is nice to be. He is very inspirational as an actor because of how much he gives to the craft, and how professional he is. Akshay is a superstar but when you look at him, you’ll realise how much this means to him. He is still up at 4 AM and he is so strict with his diet, his lifestyle, he is on set early morning and you’ll never see Akshay sir tired. When he is called for a shot, you’ll never see him tired, he is very inspirational that way.”

The Lucifer actor continued, “When you hang out with him, more and more qualities rub on you. Like he is doing this so you better pull your socks up. I then got to know the man a bit as a father because Aarav (Akshay’s son) had come on sets and hung out with us for a while when we were in Glasgow. The way he is with his family or with his son, I don’t know if I’m allowed to give out information about Akshay sir, but he is one of those guys if you know him better, you will tend to like him.
