Milan Luthria: 'Need someone to calm me down'



Mumbai, June 28 -- Akshay Kumar is currently holidaying in the US with his family. And his Once Upon Time In Mumbaai Dobara (OUATIMD) director Milan Luthria has decided to join him on this trip.

Milan has gone on a three-day break to New York, but with his big release around the corner, work is also his mind. He also plans to mix business with pleasure while spending time with the busy star. Milan says, "We'd promised each other that we'd have a couple of fun nights, like boys' nights out. I'd like to fulfil the promise. I made him work really hard on the film. Akshay's great company and has a good sense of humour. It's fun to be around him as, at this point, I need someone to calm me down. It's a small but welcome break."

Akshay' has been in the US for over two weeks now. "He insisted that he'll join me for breakfast when I reach. I'll spend time with his family too. There are some lovely restaurants around Central Park (in New York). So we'll do some luncheons and walk around. He told me the weather is beautiful there. We'll step out and hang out in the evenings as well."

Milan, however, adds that he does have to finish a few things during the break. He says, "We need to dub for the new theatrical trailer of OUATIMD which has Akshay's voice-over." The actor also insisted that Milan to be present for it. Then they will also have a press conference at the Plaza Hotel at Central Park. "We want to reach out to the US and Canadian media. Akshay is a huge star in that part of the world and we want to make sure that we connect with them." Milan left on June 26 and will return this weekend.
