One user wrote, “Father-daughter combination Love it” Another netizen wrote, “She is likely to be your granddaughter. He should take a break and reevaluate his decision,” Someone mentioned, “The 25 year gap! Another person wrote,”“Why does Mrunal look so uncomfortable with him? 😫 Or am I just projecting my feelings? 😓 What is this playing the guitar on her thighs?? Akshay please stop 😢”
i’ve never really cared for mrunal that much besides sita ramam. tbh, i always wonder how her and radhika get so many projects despite being such average actors. but i just saw pictures from her upcoming movie with akshay who’s 25 years older than her and i am appalled 😬
As per the sources, Mrunal Thakur is playing a cameo role in Selfie. Sharing details about shooting for song opposite Akshay, she said, “I had a blast shooting for the song. Haven’t done something like this earlier and the vibe on the set was super fun and peppy, much like the number itself. Shot for a few days for the song and it was a special experience. I’m excited to see the audience’s reaction to the song.”
This is not the first time Akshay has been criticized for romancing women way younger than him. In the past aswell, he has been brutally criticized for romancing Manushi Chillar, who was half his age in Prithviraj Chauhan!
Selfiee, which also stars Emraan Hashmi, Nushrratt Bharuccha and Diana Penty, is the Hindi remake of the Malayalam movie Driving Licence, which starred Prithviraj Sukumaran and Suraj Venjaramoodu. The movie is one of the most awaited movies of 2023 and set to be released in theatres on Feb 24.
