Race promotion starts

From CNN-IBN:

It was a fashionably-late start but the Bollywood biggies made up for it as Saif Ali khan, Bipasha Basu, Anil Kapoor, Sameera Reddy, Akshay Khanna and the clothing line’s brand ambassador Esha Deol strutted their stuff on the ramp for a clothing brand and then kick started the promotion for their new film - the Abbas-Mastan thriller Race.


While some tripped up others raced up and a few just flashed their signature style.


We asked the stars what they were actually racing after in life these days. While Anil Kapoor in his usual charming demeanour said, “Pursuit of happiness”, Saif had a different goal. “Good work”, he said.


Hoping for some truthful answers, we asked the resident sassy actress of Bollywood, Bipasha Basu the same question. Her reply was, “[being] on the treadmill…always…”


Esha Deol told us, “I am always racing after a lot of things whether it is a dog or money or a guy.”


We tried to find out what their racing experience was like in reel life. “It’s a cool movie with lots of cars. We are two brothers and shouldn’t be messed."


While the stars did send Delhi's Bollywood meter racing but will the movie win the box office dash? Well, we’ll have to wait and watch till Race hits the silver screen next February.

Akshaye as usual gets less footage and doesn't seem to have talked to the media. Akshaye is again looking quite fit and I can't believe how cool he is gonna look for Race. Look at him jiving on the ramp. Saif on the other hand looks grouchy. Can't wait for this movie.

Good, Akshayefan... u hav removed the same and boring photo of Akshaye Khanna from the top of ur blog. Hope, u remove those posters of Naqaab and Gandhi, My Father very soon and make your blog looks lighter.

Yeah, it's a "fantastic video"!!
Akshaye Khanna is shown enjoying himself! I can see his cigarette in his hand!! But, why does he smoke? Please, tell him to stop smoking! It will affect his health and youth!

I'm certainly looking forward to watch Race only for Akshaye Khanna and Abbas Mustan! Akshaye Khanna is looking so cool and fit in this video! He is one of the best actors in the film industry. I'm confident that Akshaye Khanna will rock in Race!

Anil Kapoor, Saif Ali Khan, Bipasha Basu and Sameera Reddy look quite old and tired in this video. Akshaye Khanna looks a bit younger with this cool attitude.

What is the height of Akshaye Khanna? He looks a bit taller than Sammeera Reddy in the video. And, why was he running?

I think that Akshaye Khanna must work a bit harder on losing his weight. If he does, he'll surprise the audience onscreen!

Oh, yeah...Akshaye Khanna looked quite slim in Dil Chahta Hai.

I don't know whether this is just a rumour, but according to IndiatimesMovies, "it was Akshaye Khanna who was considered to play the role of a teacher who looks after dyslexic children in Taare Zameen Par instead of Aamir Khan"!
