Akshay Kumar filmed romantic song at Ram Mandir

Akshay filmed romantic song at Ram Mandir 

Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar and southern actress Trisha Krishnan recently shot a song at the famous Shri Ram Mandir in Phaltan, Satara district, Maharashtra for Priyadarshan's next project "Khatta Meetha".

Titled "Sajde Kiye", it is a romantic track. The cast and crew abided by all the rules of the temple, said a source from the sets. No footwear was allowed and the clothes worn for the song were decent. While Trisha was seen in a maroon-coloured, simple lehenga-choli, Akshay too wore an Indian ensemble.

The source also says Akshay had a lot of fun shooting for "Khataa Meetha" and that he even played a prank on co-star Rajpal Yadav.

"An assistant on the sets had a cool phone which had a unique feature of changing a male voice to a female one. Akshay being the prankster that he is, took this phone and started bombarding Rajpal Yadav with calls.

"He claimed to be a girl from Dubai and kept proposing to the actor. Inspite of poor Rajpal hanging up, Akshay kept at it for a good two-three hours before finally owning up to the prank," said the source.
