Akshay takes Chandni Chowk to the US
This is the sign of how popular Akshay Kumar has become. After the press conference of his latest film Chandni Chowk to China -- Warner Bros' first Bollywood production -- at Manhattan's Essex Hotel, Akshay stepped out on Central Park South, followed by a huge entourage of photographers and television camera crew.

He stood by a yellow taxi cab parked outside the hotel waving and posing for pictures. Then suddenly the actor stepped up, and the next thing he was standing on top of the cab, smiling, with his fist in the air, reminiscent of his Singh is Kinng character.
For the next few minutes, with photographers yelling out his name, as cold wind blew from Central Park, and people walking on the sidewalk wondered who this person was ("He's a famous Bollywood star," an American man was heard explaining to a woman), Akshay seemed to be the king of Manhattan -- at least for the South Asian media.
