Actor Akshay Kumar had a surprise guest at his private birthday party in Toronto — Christopher Brian Bridges better known as Ludacris among his fans. This grammy award winning hip-hop artist, especally flew down from the US to attend Akshay’s birthday party in Toronto. Ludacris is also a well known Hollywood actor with films like Max Payne, Fred Claus, Ball Don’t Lie, No Strings Attached, News Year’s Eve, Breakaway, etc.
“Grammy hip hop artist Ludacris flew to Toronto and surprised ‘his main man’ Akshay Kumar at his private birthday party (in Toronto). The party was also attended by Canadian Prime Minister the Hon Stephen Harper and the First Lady. Ludacris jammed up a storm as he performed with the birthday boy,” said a statement.
Apparently, a make-shift stage (in a corner of the hall) was set up for the birthday boy where Ludacris went up and performed his latest numbers. Then he called Akshay Kumar up on the dias to sing-along with him. While wifey Twinkle was there at the bash too, it was little Aarav (Akshay’s son) who also went and danced with his dad when Ludacris was belting out numbers from Ludaversal (his unreleased album),” says a source.
“...the two jammed to Shera di Kaum...Ludacris certainly does know how to surprise!” added the statement saying that the hip hop singer had learned Hindi lyrics specially to perform at Akki’s birthday.
The actor is slowly making Canada as one of his bases because he is rumoured to be setting up a branch of his production house there. He is already launched a Canadian film there which is an ice hockey comedy by director Robert Leiberman at the Toronto International Film Festival. Akshay wants to make more Indo-Canadian movies.
“That’s the whole idea. I want to make more and more films. I have really enjoyed making this film. It’s been so easy. Everything was available here. So I have this in my plan,” the Bollywood actor said in Toronto last Saturday.
“The whole idea is to take Bollywood more and more global. This is just one step towards that. I want to take it further. I want to produce more and more films like that,” he added.
