Looking around at the beginning of the clip, Kapil thought to himself, “Everybody’s asleep. Does Akshay Kumar really wake up at 4am? Be late, he will insult me all my life. Let me go and get ready.” While he was brushing his teeth in the bathroom, his wife Ginni asked Chatrath if he had a shoot with Akshay. Kapil snapped at her and replied: “Who else calls me so early? Angelina Jolie?” When Ginni’s voice asked why he was mad at her, Kapil said, “Why don’t you go to sleep? He didn’t ask you to be there.”
The next video showed Kapil’s security guard snoring as he called for him to open the gate so his car could drive away. On the way to Akshay, Kapil looked at the camera and complained that everyone but him and his team were asleep.
Next, Kapil arrived at the gym and after they greeted each other, Akshay asked the comedian how everything was going. Kapil replied, “I came back from Punjab myself at night. There people remember God at 4 am; He teased Akshay, adding, “Nobody wakes up at 4am.”
Akshay asked him to exercise, but Kapil started making excuses. As Akshay began to warm up, Kapil indicated that they would do something else. During their conversation, Kapil asked Akshay if shooting was difficult for Samrat Prithviraj. He said: Main dekh raha hun aap teer chala rahe ho, talwar chala rahe ho, ghore bhaga rahe ho. Toh ghore bhi subah 4 baje uthte the (I watched you shoot arrows, fight with swords, ride horses. So, horses woke up at 4am too)?”
Akshay burst out laughing and said that Kapil was teasing him. He also said, “No, they slept earlier.” As their banter continued, Kapil asked if Akshay would practice with a sword in the gym. Akshay asked if he wanted to study. The actor tried to teach Kapil since they were both holding swords. “Tu ‘aakraman’ bol k aa pehle (you charge first and say ‘attack’),” said Akshay and Kapil asked, “Bhaag k au (should I run)?” Akshay asked: “Toh aakraman kaese chal k ayega? Nahi morning walk my Ayega tu (Will you just go?
Akshay explained to Kapil how they will both act in the scene, their swords clashing and jumping. To everything the actor said, nodding his head, Kapil walked and stopped near the exit door. As Akshay said, “On your marks, aaja (come)” and ran toward Kapil, the comedian said, “Camera, tu aaja main nikal raha hoon (You come, I go)”. He threw the sword and ran out. Ak Akshay shouted his name, Kapil ran away saying that he will visit the actor on the set.
Akshay shared the video, captioned, “Tackling before breakfast or after dinner. Watch @kapilsharma and me train at 4am! Samrat #Prithviraj Chauhan publishes in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu. Celebrate it only at a theater near you on June 3!”
