There is quite an interesting story about Akshay Kumar’s home. Infact, it would not be an overstatement if one says life has taken a full circle for this actor. Almost twenty years ago, Akshay , a young and dreamy eyed boy who was looking to work in Bollywood, wanted to get his portfolio made. He approached top glamour photographer Jayesh Sheth. Unfortunately, Rajeev aka Akshay didn’t have enough funds to pay Jayesh, so he requested the photographer to allow him to work as his assistant in lieu of payment for the portfolio shoot. To his joy, Jayesh agreed readily. Akshay ended up working with Jayesh for almost a year and a half before the portfolio shoot materialized.
Coincidently, the very same Juhu bungalow which Akshay was destined to purchase years later was chosen as the outdoor location for the portfolio shoot. The bungalow back then was in a state of disrepair and had a disheveled and a deserted look. During one the shots, the watchman of the bungalow was so annoyed over the shooting happening inside the property that he shouted and abused Akshay and even threatened to call the cops. Akshay and his accomplice Jayesh were finally shooed off the property.
And all is well that ends well because today super star Akshay Kumar lives in the same place!
