Akshay Kumar may have ridden horses for his films, but it appears he is not comfortable around one

Khiladi Kumar was required to ride a horse for his upcoming film but he got very anxious on the sets after spotting a big Arab horse.

A source says, “He wanted to take a ride but the horse’s size was overwhelming. For the scene, Akki was to be with 20 horses. Though he was excited at the prospect of riding, it was a bit unsettling.” The film’s director Milan Luthria is a good rider and stepped forward to help him conquer his fears. “I asked Akshay to take a ride along with me and he agreed. After hesitating initially, he managed to handle it well and surprised us all,” says Milan.
