Reportedly, the actor was suffering from a sprain in his back that compelled him to cancel the shoot for his own production, Patiala House.
Akki has been shooting non-stop for the Nikhil Advani film at Mehboob Studios. He sprained his back during an action scene.
A source told a tabloid, "Since he performs stunts on his own, it takes a toll on his back. And he's had a back problem for a really long time. The pain wasn't getting any lesser. So, Akshay decided to rest for the day. The doctor advised the actor physiotherapy and adequate rest."
Being the producer, Akshay didn't hesitate to take a break. "No-one else lost money by his cancelling the shoot, so Akshay didn't think twice. He's had a record of working in the industry without ever cancelling a shoot, only because he doesn't like the producer to suffer losses at his expense," the source told the tabloid.
Akshay, however, managed to make it to the Mumbai Marathon yesterday. Well, it seems the actor is all set to be back in action.
