That Bollywood's original khiladi Akshay Kumar is a chivalrous gentleman is well-known. In fact, his Housefull 2 co-star Asin Thottumkal lately had an experience that clearly illustrated his protectiveness towards the women around him. The actress is thankful for the way Akshay became her bodyguard during the recent Indo-Pak cricket match in Bangladesh.
The actress says, "We had a great time watching the match live. In the box, Akki called me the most desh bhakt fan of all as I was cheering the loudest. We didn't have to time meet any Indian or Pakistani players post the match, but we had our own fun with our gang, including Sajid Nadiadwala and Jacqueline Fernandez"
"When Akshay and I went to the ground, the crowd went crazy. They rushed towards us and we were surrounded by screaming fans. Akshay literally became my bodyguard. He totally covered me or I'd have been squashed! We had security but still it was crazy. People were falling onto me in the rush and Akshay kept pushing them away. He held my hand and ensured that I was safe from the mob."
