Superstar Akshay Kumar was recently seen riding a TVS Raider 125cc commuter motorcycle. The actor, known for his daring stunts in movies, has a thing for high-end cars. Also, he’s been the brand ambassador for Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India for some years now. But the reason behind him riding a TVS Raider is simply that he was shooting for his upcoming movie ‘Sky Force’ in Sitapur, Uttar Pradesh.

Akshay Kumar Shooting for Sky Force
The video, shared by ANI on their Twitter or ‘X’ profile, captures Akshay Kumar confidently riding the TVS Raider within a fenced open ground. While he was riding a motorcycle sans a helmet, it’s important to note that such was the demand of the script. It’s certain that the movie would run a disclaimer about not riding without a helmet once it hits the silver screen.
Quite unsurprisingly, there was an excited audience at the perimeter of the ground to spot the shooting. The video shows the presence of police officers to manage the crowd. Even though Akshay’s security was vigilant and ensured the actor was safe, he waved at the crowd. In fact, he even interacted with his fans and as well as the police officers.
