Akshay Kumar Never Discouraged Me From Imitating Him: Lookalike Vikalp Mehta

Darpan News Desk IANS, 23 Oct, 2019

    Akshay Kumar's lookalike Vikalp Mehta has garnered more than 1.4 million views on his YouTube channel for recreating the superhit "Shaitan ka saala" song from "Housefull 4". Vikalp says the 53-year-old superstar has never discouraged him for imitating him unlike many other actors.

     

    "I have been imitating Akshay ji over the past 10 years, and I was always a huge fan. We all know he is a superstar but he has a really good nature. There are a lot of celebrities who don't promote people who do their mimicry but Akshay has been supportive.

     

    I must have met Akshay on 10 to 12 occasions, and whenever I met him he interacts with me in a sweet manner. That's why I have a huge respect for him," said.

    Vikalp recently got a chance to interact with Akshay and the cast of "Housefull 4". "A few days back, I got the opportunity to work with Akshay and the team of �Housefull 4' for Star Plus channel's upcoming show �Yeh Diwali Apno Wali', where I celebrated Diwali with the entire cast of �Housefull 4'. We had a lot of fun while shooting for the show," he recalled.

     

    Speaking about recreating �Shaitan ka saala', Vikalp said: "Akshay Kumar's �Shaitan Ka Saala' song is a huge hit and he asked fans to recreate the song by tagging him on social media sites under #TheBalaChallenge. How could I avoid order of my idol? I recreated the song and now it has also became a huge hit. Even Akshay Ji posted my recreated version on his Instagram account."

     

    Vikalp has collaborated with Akshay on several occasions. "I have earlier worked with him in �The Kapil Sharma Show', �Comedy Circus' and �Entertainment Ke Liye Kuch Bhi Karega' in 2010. I have done dubbing in various languages for his advertisements when he is not available due to busy schedule. I make videos of him on Instrgam, YouTube and TikTok, and people appreciate that as well."

     

    Vikalp's latest performance with the "Housefull 4" team on "Yeh Diwali Apno Wali" will air on Star Plus on October 26.
