Mumbai, June 18 (IANS) Actor Akshaye Khanna is baffled by rumours of alcoholism. He says he neither has a drinking problem nor did he check into a rehabilitation centre.
"I don't have a drinking problem and who says I went to a rehab? I'm the last person on this earth to make a spectacle of myself. Yes, I did take a vacation," Akshaye told IANS in an interview.
Asked where such news came from, he said: "It was one photograph taken outside a friend's nightclub. It was blown a bit out of proportion. Isn't it normal to unwind at a friend's party? Suddenly I hear I have a drinking problem."
The actor was seen in a funny role in his new release, "Mere Baap Pehle Aap", which has opened to a mixed response.
