Mumbai: He has been the Khiladi of Bollywood and now is known as its Kingg. Akshay Kumar walked the ramp for the first time ever on Tuesday but what got everyone's attention, was his missing shirt.
The event was a fashion show to introduce the Khiladi as the brand ambassador for Levis and Akshay was full of quotable quotes for the occassion.
"To me, my butt looks good in jeans," he said.
Akshay, who literally set the ramp on fire with his washboard abs said, "I have been wearing Levis since my childhood, my father has been wearing for the past three decades, everyone in my family has been buying Levis," he added.
The actor even let out a few secrets on how to get that six pack.
"Chavanprash. I workout for one hour a day. I do a bit of parco, a little shadow-boxing and I eat a lot. I don't believe in myoplexes, steroids and injections. I like maa ka parathaa and maa ki daal," he said.
But the quote of the day came in this form of a dig at King Khan himself.
"Who said you have to be fair to be beautiful? It's not right. I don't believe people in India are falling for endorsments for fairness creams. To me, dusky is sexy," he said.
And Akshay was hardly modest about his catwalking abilities…
"Walking the ramp is very simple thing. You can do it, the cameraman can do it, anyone can do it. It's just like taking a walk and coming back. And beech mein phir ruk jao(just stop in the middle), look left, look right and then look straight. We learnt this when we were three years old," he chuckled.
With the success of Singh is Kinng, offers for endorsements and a Rs 72 crore fee for his next film, no guesses as to why Khiladi Kumar is at his confident best.
