Akshaye's secret passion

They are known for their acting skills, but Hrithik Roshan and Akshaye Khanna also have some talents that the world knows little about - singing and dress designing!

Hrithik mesmerised all and sundry with his singing and Akshaye surprised guests with his designing skills at the International Indian Film Academy (IIFA) awards extravaganza that concluded in the Chinese town of Macau on Saturday.

Hrithik sang "Tere jaisa yaar kahaan..." at an impromptu 'antakshari' music session conducted by actor Boman Irani, while Akshaye came dressed in his own creation - a formal suit.

"If I actually tell you who has designed my outfit, you will get a shock - it's me," Akshaye told IANS. "Actually, I have a passion for tailoring which many people don't know about. So it's just one of my designs," he added.

Anil Kapoor, who is producing Akshaye-starrer Shortkut: The Con Is On, vouched for the latter's creativity in fashion. "He (Akshaye) is very good at it, but very expensive," he quipped.

Is that why his wardrobes are usually so awful? /sarc
