Bollywood star Akshay Kumar has a secret hobby of collecting posters of old Bollywood movies and actors and his fans will get to see his collection in a scene in his forthcoming movie Action Replay.
"Akshay has been collecting these posters for years and has built himself a sizeable collection," said a source close to the actor.
In Action Replay, Akshay plays a coffee house owner and when the set was being planned, director Vipul Shah mentioned that he wanted it to be a Bollywood themed cafe.
While the crew searched for suitable posters in the market, they managed only a few cheesy ones. That's when Akshay came to their rescue.
"Yes, it’s true that I have lent some posters to Vipul because for the longest time, they couldn’t source original ones,” said Akshay.
Shah said: “We were not getting good posters and the problem kept cropping up in production meetings. We had absolutely no clue that Akshay had such a collection. It was a pleasant surprise.”
Action Replay also features Aishwarya Rai.
