The development of the new Metro in Mumbai has been a topic of debate. Mumbai Metro Rail Corporation (MMRCL) proposes to clear 2,646 trees from the forest area in the Aarey colony, so that it can build a rail shed for the Metro III project. Environmentalists are obviously against the move and have been protesting against it for a long time now. Amitabh Bachchan is currently facing backlash on social media for expressing his pro-Metro stance. Now, Akshay Kumar seems to have joined the club. The Kesari actor took to his Twitter page and shared a video, in which he can be seen travelling in a crowded metro train in Mumbai.
Akshay wrote, "My ride for today, the @MumMetro...travelled #LikeABoss from Ghatkopar to Versova beating the peak hours traffic (sic)" Akshay also panned the camera around to show the faces of his fellow commuters, who surprisingly did not look fazed by the superstar's presence.
In the video, Akshay says that he was shooting in Ghatkopar and he had to reach Versova. His map was showing travel time as 2+ hours. Director of Akshay's next film, Good News, Raj suggested that they take a metro. Akshay decided to take the 'risk' and was happy about reducing his travel time to 20 minutes. He said he brought along two security personnel.

On the professional front, Akshay Kumar is probably the busiest actor in Bollywood. He has some of the most interesting projects in his kitty. The actor recently tasted success with Mission Mangal, which crossed Rs 200 crores at the box office. He will be next seen in Dharma Productions' Good News with Kareena Kapoor Khan, Diljit Dosanjh and Kiara Advani. The actor has also been shooting for Rohit Shetty's Sooryavanshi, in which he reunites with Katrina Kaif on-screen after 9 years. Akshay will also be seen in Raghava Lawrence's Laxmmi Bomb, a remake of Kanchana 2. And let us not forget movies, like Housefull 4, Bachchan Pandey and Prithviraj.
Well, with that big number of movies means there will be too many shooting locations to cover in the coming time. Don't be surprised if you start spotting Akshay Kumar regularly during your Metro ride. That is obviously the faster way to reach the destination, after all.
