Hyderabad: Aakanksha Singh has been one of the most sought-after fresh talents in the Hindi film industry in recent times. In her upcoming line-up of films, the actor is working alongside some of the biggest names in the industry. But getting these amazing opportunities has only increased Aakanksha’s dedication and hard work towards her craft.
The actor will next be seen in Ajay Devgn’s upcoming directorial ‘Runway 34’, where she is playing the part of Ajay’s wife. During the shoot of the film, the actor got severely injured and ended up with a fracture. However, being a professional, she continued to shoot despite the injury and the pain. She used to arrive on set on a wheel chair but never missed a day of work.
Her co-star in the film, megastar Amitabh Bachchan was really impressed on seeing her dedication, and showed a very kind gesture towards her that became priceless for her. The Big B especially got a buggie for her from his house to use as he noticed that she was facing difficulty to move around on the wheel chair. Being the gentleman that he is, he also went to the extent to make sure that she was comfortable during the shoot.
Aakanksha was highly touched by this gesture and felt really special. To thank him for it, she wrote a special poem for Big B, depicting how her dream of working with him has come true through ‘Runway 34’. The legendary actor was so touched by the poem that he sent her a hand-written letter, thanking and appreciating her for her sweet words.
Not just this, but the duo had many more memorable moments on the set that made the film special for both of them. Being a big foodie, Aakanksha often used to end up snacking on the sets in between breaks. Big B noticed this, and once during the shoot, he got some special cookies for her and even gave her a sweet nickname, ‘Tuty-frooty’. And that was the beginning of their beautiful camaraderie.
Aakanksha lived the dream of many of seeing their name alongside Mr Bachchan and this will be a film that she will never forget in her life.
