Lisa Haydon on working with Akshay Kumar


Lisa Haydon, who made her acting debut with the 2010 film Aisha, is now set for her upcoming film Housefull 3. Lisa’s portrayal of the bohemian Vijaylaxmi in the 2014 film Queen has gained her much appreciation and is still fresh in our memories. The model-turned-actor’s last outing The Shaukeens couldn’t strike the right chord with the audience, but that doesn’t stop Lisa from doing what is to be done. Now, Haydon is all set to entice her fans with Housefull 3.Lisa plays the love interest of Riteish Deshmukh in the film. Apart from Riteish and Lisa, the film also stars Akshay Kumar, Nargis Fakhri and Jacqueline Fernandez in the lead roles. Housefull 3 is all set to hit the screens on June 3 this year. Ahead of its release, Lisa speaks to about working with Akshay Kumar and more. Excerpts from the conversation.Akshay is a big prankster and just wants to have a good time on the sets. He is the funniest person I have ever met. He is always charged up when he does comedy, and one has to be on their toes all the time as you don’t know what he might do or say. I don’t know why, but he particularly narrows down on me every single time. Maybe that’s because I am an easy target. Once, Akshay sneezed and he sprayed a bit of water on my back. And I thought it was his saliva. I was like, ‘Jackky… (Jacqueline Fernandez)’ as she was standing behind me, but she didn’t utter a single word (laughs). Akshay is the master of comedy. You get to learn a lot if you’re working with him.Just like Akshay, Riteish also ganged up on me. Riteish is funny and has a lot of expressions. He is a man of many faces. Akshay is a prankster, so is he. He might look all sweet and innocent, but by the end of the shoot, I was like what you hiding Riteish behind your back because you just don’t know what he’s up to (bursts laughing). He is my on-screen protector and boyfriend Teddy. I think I was the easiest target for both Akshay and Riteish. Everybody played a prank on me with a sneeze-fest. I can go on and on about what else happened on the sets, but by the end, I just couldn’t trust Riteish!
