Ananya Panday recently heaped praise on Akshay Kumar for his timeless humour and professionalism. 

Speaking exclusively to ETimes in an interview, Panday shared her experience of knowing the Welcome actor.

Praising Kumar's phenomenal acting skills, the Kho Gaye Hum Kahan star gushed: "Akshay Sir has defined an era in cinema which, by far, has been my most favorite. His films like Hera Pheri, Welcome, De Dana Dan, Bhool Bhulaiyaa, Garam Masala, they've been the most iconic films for me. I could watch it 100 times on repeat, they've made me laugh so much."

She further went on to talk about his professionalism and spectacular sense of humour, adding: "He is the most professionally involved person I've come across."

The 25-year-old actress claimed: "He remembers everything; he gives the most fun ideas. I've even heard from my dad that he keeps the set fresh and light, is always pulling a prank, and never takes himself too seriously."

The actress who started out with Karan Johar’s Student of The Year 2, is said to be working with Kumar in an upcoming film, revolving around the life of the former politician C. Sankaran Nair.

The Karan Johar starrer The Untold Story of C. Sankaran Nair, directed by Karan Singh Tyagi is a biopic, starring Akshay Kumar and Panday among others.
