Akshay Kumar performs daredevil stunts

Akshay Kumar performed daredevil stunt to welcome the Indian Premier League bandwagon at the Ferozshah Kotla Stadium here Saturday evening.

The approximately 35,000+ crowd were treated to entertainment of a different kind, real stunts by Akshay Kumar. The Delhi-born star flung in air over 70 meters from the ground and slid on a wire from one end of the stadium to the other, watched by a spell-bound audience. For a moment it looked as if a brilliant trapeze artist was performing. The 40-year-old fitness freak climbed on to a trolley and then leapt in the air on the specially laid wire for the stunt. He turned upside down as he tried to reach the other end of the stage, crossing flames. Akshay then did a lap of the stadium with cheerleaders following him.

There were also a trick bicyclist and martial arts performers who entertained the audience with their stunts.
