Akshay Kumar: Transformed into the new Optimus Prime

The Khiladi takes time off from ‘work’ to make his son a happy boy

The famous character from Transformers, Optimus Prime now has a new voice. This time the enormous robot will be seen in a desi avatar in the Hindi version of the movie. The king of action, Akshay Kumar has already dubbed for the latest version, Transformers: Dark Of the Moon, and he seems to be quite thrilled to have lent his voice to one of the most popular character in the series. It doesn’t come across as a surprise that the actor agreed to be part of an action movie,considering his resume primarily boasts of such films. But this time, Akki states that his reasons for accepting the assignment were slightly different. He decided to be associated with this only because his son Aarav is a huge fan of the Transformers series. Now we have some really doting fathers in B-town. SRK was seen doing something similar for son Aryan when he did the voice-over for the main superhero of The Incredibles(2004). Apparently even RA.One is a gift from him to his children. Gone are the days when weary fathers would try to replace the conventional Superman and Batman from comic books; these days we have celeb daddies come up with their own unique and larger-than-life ways to impress their kids. Maybe more regular dads can learn a lesson or two from them!
