Shanthi Priya, a co-star in Akshay Kumar’s film Ikke Pe Ikka, stated that the actor interrogated her after allegedly making a discriminatory remark about her.
One of the most well-known performers in Hindi cinema is Akshay Kumar. He is currently enjoying the success of his most recent movie, “OMG 2,” in which Pankaj Tripathi plays a crucial part. Moving on to the current developments, Shanthi Priya, Akshay’s Ikke Pe Ikka co-star, has spoken out against the actor, claiming that he had made a derogatory remark about her.
Akshay has been involved in numerous issues over the years, although he frequently avoids bringing them up in interviews or at public events. The actor is married to Twinkle Khanna, with whom he has two children. On social media, the couple frequently provides glimpses into their private lives.
Returning to the most recent news, Shanthi Priya discussed an alleged racist remark made by Akshay Kumar about her in a conversation with Siddharth Kannan. It’s a delicate subject; he must not have comprehended that, she replied. He replied, “Oh, see how dark they are,” and pointed to my knees in front of everyone. Have you been hurt in any way? Have you ever fallen down? ‘No, why?’ I questioned. What happened, dude? he asked. Why are your knees this dreadful shade of black? Has a blood clot formed?
Talking about it further, she said, “I went into a shell. My mom was a strong pillar for us because we already faced these things in our industry down South. There are a couple of magazines in the Hindi industry where they wrote about didi when she had pimples. They used to write that the number of pimples she has, the much amount she charges for a movie. We went through a lot for colour. Me and my sister, and not only in the ’90s but even now, my sons go through it. My elder son, yes, goes through it.”
In addition, Shanthi Priya revealed how everyone reacted to Akshay Kumar’s racist remark on the sets, stating, “At first, they were all laughing, and everything was going well. I responded, “Okay, did you really mean that?” I then turned to face my mother. She used to be with me, so I went and spoke to her discreetly. I thus left gently, and it was only then that they discovered how bad it was.
