The actor had to take charge of the situation when an enormous mob disrupted the shoot of his next in Delhi

They say performing the toughest stunts comes naturally to Akshay Kumar but the actor found himself in a tough spot recently during one of his shoot schedules in Delhi. Akki was in the national capital to film some power-packed action scenes for Boss. With the crew spread out over areas of Chandni Chowk and Jama Masjid, the ongoing activity managed to rouse the interests of many local folk.

Curious to see Akshay in action, huge crowds gathered around and it posed to be quite a problem for the film’s team to carry on work. Says a source, “It was no longer possible for the shoot to progress smoothly. It was a nightmare to manage such huge crowds. Realising the situation at hand, Akshay decided to guide the mob himself.”

Unit hands say almost 100 security personnel were present at the venue to guard the actor and his team but managing the 1000 plus crowd was almost impossible. It was only after Akshay stepped up and waved out to the crowd that they agreed to calm down. At Chandni Chowk, he had to move on foot to greet his fans who had gathered around him.
