Akshay Kumar is on a high these days. His recent release, Rustom, has just toppled Hrithik Roshan's Mohenjo Daro at the box-office. Most big stars would just have tweeted a 'thank you' message to fans for making the film a success. But a simple 'thank you' is just too manistream for Kumar. 

Here's the full video

The actor came up with the zaniest song thanking his fans, while trying to hula hoop. In the video, the Khiladi Kumar sings out his thanks to everyone who supported his film, and also wishes luck to every film that is to release this year. Dressed in checkered pyjamas, Kumar sings insanely funny lyrics that go 'Salman ki tubelight chale, 440 volt woh jale jale...' and 'Sonakshi ki Akira dekhe Ambani aur fakire'. The actor mentions a list of films like Befikre, Baar Baar Dekho, Half Girlfriend, Badrinath ki Dulhaniya. Fawad Khan, Sonam Kapoor, Alia Bhatt get thankful mentions. Interestingly, the actor makes no mention of Hrithik Roshan's Mohenjo Daro, which was his main competition last weekend, or SRK whose Dear Zindagi will release in November. 

Aside from the absolute charm of the song, Kumar's performance with the hula hoop is hilariously amazing. Not once does the actor miss a beat through the entire song. For once, it is refreshing to watch the actor let down his guard and return to the craziness that reminds us of the 90s.
