Ananya Chadha with BROTHERS’ at Mithibai Kshitij
SVKM Mithibai’s annual inter-collegiate cultural festival, Kshitij’s launch that took place on 5th August 2015 was nothing less than a carnival. The three day festival that has a footfall of 40,000 was launched with the star cast of the movie “Brothers”. Akshay Kumar, Siddharth Malhotra and Jacqueline Fernandez graced the launch, hosted by Rajeev Masand.
Various youth-connecting issues were spoken about. Akshay’s martial arts school, Womens Self Defence Centre (WSDC) offers free self defence training to girls. He also spoke about how each individual must take up a sport and not depend on supplements to build their body as that is temporary. “When in doubt, work out. When not in doubt, knock out” is how he pumped up the Kshitij-ites. ‘Blood-Sport’, Kshitij’s mixed martial arts event was also acknowledged by Akshay. To this, Siddharth added how the ‘Brothers’ anthem will help you keep going through your tasks. Kshitij-ites were in awe of Jacqueline’s skin and fitness. A dance performance by Kshitij-ites, a martial arts act and a game- ‘Guess the brother’ were highlights of the launch.
When the Hollywood movie ‘Warrior’ was compared to ‘Brothers’, Akshay proudly claimed how the Bollywood remake will be loved much more.
