The cast of Ekta’s gangster film was accused of wearing promotional T-shirts at an event that had specifically banned any film promotions.
After sources say that the cameras at the match were specifically asked not to be focussed on the film’s team, Akshay apparently is now extremely miffed at the way the event was handled.
An insider from Akki’s camp says, “The plan of the makers had totally backfired. Akshay is mighty annoyed with Ekta after the entire drama at the IPL. First the makers made Akshay travel all the way to Kolkata and then couldn’t even manage to get adequate coverage on national television.”
Apparently Akki was also upset at the overwhelming support his archrival Shah Rukh Khan (owner of Kolkata Knight Riders) got after the cameras caught him at the stadium but all that Akshay and his team managed to receive was just a loud round of applause.
So much so that insiders now say that the actor has asked Ekta to revamp the entire marketing plan around the film. What will happen now? Our guess is as good as yours.
