A 12-year-old film finally got completed this week, thanks to its leading man Akshay Kumar's determination not to have a single film in the cans.
This week after completing a schedule of Sajid Khan's "Housefull", Akshay Kumar sent Deepika Padukone packing and called producer-director Shabnam Kapoor to London to complete the long-pending "Purab Ki Laila Paschim Ka Chaila", now called "Helloo India".
Shabnam Kapoor flew to London and shot with Akshay Kumar for almost a week before he flew out to Italy Thursday for the next schedule of "Housefull".
With the completion of "Purab Ki Laila..." which also stars Namrata Shirodkar and Suniel Shetty, Akshay prides himself on being the only leading man in Bollywood who has no films in the cans.
Interestingly this would be only the second film in Akshay's career directed by a female. "Sangharsh" directed by Tanuja Chandra was the first.
