Akshay Kumar’s ludo-playing skills became an interesting point of discussion on Twitter after his ‘Kesari’ co-star Parineeti Chopra paid him money for consistenly losing to him. Riteish Deshmukh, Pooja Hegde and Huma Qureshi also joined in the fun in a hilarious set of conversations on the microblogging website.
Reacting to Parineeti’s gesture, ‘Khiladi Kumar’s ‘Housefull’ franchise co-star Riteish quipped, “Now you guys know how @akshaykumar becomes the highest taxpayer in the country. We the co-actors contribute heavily. He has the most innovative games ... he can have his own mini-olympics.”
The ‘2.0’ star was ready for another match-up with Riteish, but the latter felt his opponent being blindfolded was also not enough for him to win.
Parineeti meanwhile, joined the conversation, “Sigh. Spending time with Akshay sir is extremely expensive. @akshaykumar.”
However, another member of ‘Housefull 4’, Pooja Hegde might be wondering about the fuss is all about as she beat Akshay not once but twice and called it, “One of my greatest achievements.”
Not the one to take defeat lightly, he replied, “Hold onto that record tight, #Housefull4 promotions coming up shortly.” Riteish warned the actress what was in store for her and she was happy to quit lest face the wounded tiger.
Akshay’s ‘Jolly LLB 2’ co-star Huma Qureshi wondered if she could get her Rs 2000 back while she and Riteish joked about him not adding GST, but deducting TDS.
