Actor Akshay Kumar's former karate student Prateek Chakravorty has turned director with "From Sydney With Love" and the star reveals that the new director calls him "uncle".
"He calls me Akshay uncle. Backstage he asked me if he should call me Akshay uncle or not? I love what comes from the heart," the 44-year-old said here at the music launch of the film.
"This is unfortunate that he (Prateek) did not take me in his first film. I have told Prateek a lot of times that please make a film with me, but he refused. But he has promised me that he will cast me in his second film," added Akshay.
"From Sydney With Love" stars Prateek himself along with Bidita Bag, Sharad Malhotra, Evelyn Sharma and Karan Sagoo and it hits theatres July 27.
Talking about Prateek, Akshay further said: "Will you believe me if I say I used to teach him karate? He was a good student but then he stopped it.
"He always wanted to be a director, an actor and I am proud that he has become an actor, he has directed his first film and he has taken forward his grandfather Pramod Films' name ahead," said Akshay.
