Media piling on Akshaye

A visibly uncomfortable Akshaye Khanna was recently spotted promoting his next film at a popular radio station. At first glance, it looked like the actor — who hasn’t had a hit in a long time— was anxious about his film Mere Baap Pehle Aap doing well at the box office. But it was only later that we realised the real reason for his jumpiness. The media-shy actor was apparently finding it hard to settle in the presence of all the cameras around him. Despite his quandary though, Akshaye somehow managed to get his act right and participated in the promotions wholeheartedly. The radio station had arranged for a bizarre ceremony. A female contest winner was made to tie the knot with a male Radio Jockey, and Akshaye happily played the part of a pandit. Once the nuptials were complete, Akshaye eased up and spoke to the media about his film. Perhaps he felt more intelligent next to the newlyweds?
