Akshay Kumar to wear old, used clothes taken from shop owners, in his next, Patiala House

He might be one of the most stylish actors in Bollywood, but in Patiala House, Akshay Kumar will wear used clothes loaned by three shop owners.

Director Nikhil Advani has borrowed clothes from London’s shop owners as Akshay plays a character from Southall.

Our source revealed, “Akshay’s character in Patiala House is that of a Punjabi boy who is helping out his father by running a corner store in Southall, London. So to give Akshay authenticity, Nikhil visited several corner stores in Southall and zeroed in on three guys who are similar to Akshay in height and build. He has requested them to lend a few clothes to Akshay, and that’s what he will be dressed in for Patiala House.”

Nikhil said, “I didn’t want Akshay or anyone else’s character in film to look unreal or over the top. So while researching, we decided to shortlist a few guys who actually manage corner stores and asked them for their clothes.”

Slated to release on Diwali next year, Patiala House will go on floors in December and will be shot extensively at Southall. The film also stars Anushka Sharma, along with the magical jodi of Dimple Kapadia and Rishi Kapoor.
