Actor Akshay Kumar announced the launch of his upcoming web show in style. The actor literally set himself on fire and walked the ramp. The daredevil fire stunt might have impressed his fans but has left his wife fuming.  It didn’t help that she got to know on social media that her actor husband had moments ago set himself on fire.

Reacting to his tweet about the event, Twinkle wrote, “Crap! This is how I find out that you decided to set yourself on fire! Come home and I am going to kill you-in case you do survive this! #GodHelpMe.” 

Akshay, too, had an interesting reply. “Now that’s something I’d actually be afraid of,” he tweeted.

To announce his new show, Akshay Kumar walked the stage with his body on fire. As the organisers said later that all required permissions had been taken and all safety criteria followed.

Speaking at the event, he later said, “Action is within me, I call myself a stuntman first and then an actor.” 

He had also revealed that his son Aarav inspired him to make his digital debut. 

“If I were to make a small confession here, it was my son Aarav who suggested that I make my digital debut as that’s what the youth is hooked onto. On this medium, I want to create something extraordinary and connect with them,” Akshay said.

Meanwhile, Akshay is currently gearing up for the release of his ambitious period drama ‘Kesari’ and will soon be seen in Rohit Shetty’s ‘Sooryavanshi’.
