Twinkle Khanna was present for the launch of the song composed by Amit Trivedi and sung by Arijit Singh in Mumbai on Wednesday. Twinkle was asked if her husband, Akshay Kumar, was her first choice to play Lakshmikant Chauhan. That’s when she revealed that it was R Balki who convinced her that Akshay is the perfect fit for the role.
Twinkle chose not to reveal who the first choice was. “I did think of a few people. But again the thing is that if we have somebody who the Indian public idealises, and men look up to and he holds a sanitary pad, then it’s completely a game-changing event.”
She continued, “I think Akshay, after seeing the movie and see what Balki has made Akshay do, of course Akshay is very talented himself, Balki has brought out the best in him. So I don’t think anybody else could have played this as wonderfully as Mr K (Akshay Kumar) here.”
