What’s in a word, asks Akshay Kumar!
With the Khiladi accepting his poor English language skills and announcing that he will henceforth use Hindi instead, we wonder who else desperately needs to go desi
Akshay Kumar recently surprised us when he admitted during the promotions of Desi Boyz that he is uncomfortable speaking in English. Of course we know he doesn’t have his wife Twinkle Khanna’s command over the language. We were just surprised that he came out and admitted it. There are a helluva number of stars out there who may do very well when they have to speak English dialogues onscreen, but fail miserably offscreen. Bollywood is a HINDI film industry, but from scripts being written in English to English lyrics (What’s my name? My name is Sheila) andeven English titles for movies (My Name Is Khan, We Are Family), the Queen’s language has become an integral part of the industry. We take a look at how good our stars are when it comes to holding their own in English…..
