MUMBAI — Akshay Kumar, like everyone else, was caught in the Friday Aug. 5 torrential rain in Mumbai that paralyzed traffic in all parts of the city. While it was terrible especially for the common man, evidently the rain god did not spare even celebrities.

Kumar was to shoot for Kapil Sharma’s comedy show “The Kapil Sharma Show” at Film City and was scheduled to reach there by noon. After all, “Rustom” is releasing Friday Aug. 12, and he had to promote it. Caught in an unending traffic jam, the actor got out of his car and jumped onto his security guard’s bike. He zoomed into the studio at 12:20 p.m. drenched but had made a request on the way for a change of clothes, which was arranged for him!
