Akshaye doesn't collect award

Akshaye Khanna was in attendance at a recently concluded international awards to promote his coming film ShortKut The Con Is On but he was missing for all the events related to the film.

That's not all. He was present at the award ceremony but didn't go up on the stage to collect the award when his name was announced (For Race in the Best Actor in A Negative Role category).

Strange behaviour

A source present at the venue says in a surprised tone, "Khanna's behaviour was rather strange. He has been to award shows abroad earlier but never has he acted like this. He not only neglected the promotional event for his upcoming film but also failed to pick up an award the next night at the awards ceremony."

Disappearing act

Anil Kapoor, the producer of ShortKut specially flew down from the States where he is shooting for the American television show 24, to unveil the first promo of the film at the function. The organisers flew in Amrita Rao, Arshad Warsi and other cast members of the film.

But when the time came to promote the film, the Indian and international press kept waiting for Khanna, who went MIA for no apparent reason. The source continues, "When his name was announced for an award, Khanna was found missing from his seat.

Anil Kapoor picked up his award instead. It was later discovered that he had already left the building."

Akshaye Khanna? Hmmm...May be getting awards doesn't matter for him.

Maybe he went outside to smoke cigarettes? Seems like he's too addicted to smoking, if he has to leave events in between to get a smoke

I think that Akshoo had already left the building.
