What made Akshay Kumar angry on the sets of ‘Comedy Nights Bachao’?

MUMBAI:Khilaadi Kumar is generally known for his poised and calm appearances off the big screen, but he recently lost his cool while promoting his upcoming flick Housefull 3 on the show Comedy Nights Bachao.

The entire cast of Housefull 3, barring Abhishek Bachchan, was on the sets of the show as part of promotions of their upcoming flick. While the format of the show is based on the AIB Roast, where insults were thrown at the cast at regular intervals, Riteish Deshmukh and Akshay didn’t seem comfortable with it right from the beginning.

Reportedly, comedian Siddharth Jadhav’s remarks aimed at Lisa Haydon, made Akshay feel that the actress was being humiliated. According to a report on NDTV, the comedian had allegedly passed on racist comments on Lisa, calling her a ‘black African’ at first and later on saying that she resembled a kangaroo (as she hails from Australia). This infuriated Akshay and he intervened to stop Siddharth.
According to Zee News, a source from the unit revealed, “He was upset that the comedians were aware that Lisa wasn’t too well versed in Hindi and wouldn’t even understand the few lines that the guys uttered. So, he thought it was all the more unfair that one would make fun of a person who didn’t even know the language well.”
Housefull 3 is supposed to hit the theatres on June 3 this year.
