Actor Akshay Kumar bathes in Holy Ganga during his visit to Varanasi for Samrat Prithviraj promotions accompanied by debutante and Miss World Manushi Chillar.
The Khiladi actor can be seen clasping his hands above his head before throwing himself into Varanasi waters as rescuers from a boat hold a lifeline. It looks like Akshay Kumar enjoyed his little swim as he went for a short backstroke in the gray waters surrounded by hues of yellow light.
Taking to his Instagram handle, Akshay Kumar shared a photo of himself wearing a soft pink colored kurta with a prayer bead around his neck. He was seen holding a prayer tray in his hands with diyas and flowers. Akshay also had a red tika on his forehead.
The photo revealed Akshay Kumar surrounded by a crowd of people on the steps of the ghat as garlands of marigolds were spotted just above him. The ambience had a beautiful golden color. Newbie Manushi Chillar also shared a series of photos on her Instagram. She opted for a minimalist look with a baby pink kurti embroidered with a dupatta. A pair of studded pearl earrings and a shade of nude lipstick complimented her looks. Manushi had her hair tied in a loose bun, sporting the same red tika as her co-star Akshay Kumar.
In one of her photos, Manushi was seen praying with her hands clasped, her eyes closed in devotion. Crowds of people were seen behind her in boats as well as on the ghats. In another photo, Miss World 2017 and Akshay Kumar held the prayer tray with a priest helping them offer their prayers. Manushi had his million dollar smile on his face while Akshay looked tough.
Meanwhile, Akshay Kumar and Manushi Chillar’s “Samrat Prithviraj” is set to hit theaters on June 3. Led by Chandraprakash Dwivedi, “Samrat Prithviraj” is a biopic about legendary warrior Prithviraj Chauhan. The film is also Manushi Chillar’s first breakthrough in Bollywood.
