Celebrity photographer Dabboo Ratnani releases his coveted calendar shoot every year. Over the past few years, the ace photographer has been unveiling stunning pictures of Bollywood stars who were featured in the Dabboo Ratnani Calendar 2021.
Bollywood star Akshay Kumar has always been a vital part of Dabboo Ratnani calendar shoot and this year was no different. Talking about working with Akshay, Dabboo said, “Akshay and I have been shooting together since the start of my career. He has been a part of the calendar shoots right from 2001 and I shoot a lot with him. I shoot an extensive amount of all his ad campaigns, all his personal shoots, and film publicity. I have done a lot of work with Akshay. In fact, we even did some stuff for BellBottom which will come out soon”.
Daboo further added, “He is very spontaneous, energetic, and a lot of ‘masti’. His shoot lasts for very little time, he is very quick. So he is great fun to be with, great energy. He wakes up early morning and even I am a morning person. Sometimes my shoots are at 5-6 in the morning and we are back home by 9 in the morning. In the four-five hours, we have achieved so much while the whole country is still asleep. I think his energy is infectious and he has so much positivity.”
He also revealed that Akshay Kumar is himself a trained photographer and his perspective helps on location. “He is trained as a photographer. Before he came into the acting business, he actually assisted a photographer. So he has a lot of perspective in terms of lighting, posing and what would kind of work. It helps to have this perspective in the picture as well,” he said.
