This may well be the casting coup of all times. Bollywood Baadshah SRK will be seen on-screen with none other than Khiladi Akshay Kumar. Director Sajid Khan is keen to cast the two in his next film. If things work out, we might see the two stars dazzle on–screen before long.
Both SRK and Akshay have been reigning stars for years now but they haven"t worked together yet. There have also been media reports about the alleged rivalry between the two. Shahrukh scoring at the box-office and Akshay emerging as the highest tax payer has only elevated the hype surrounding them. Sajid Khan has sent feelers to both and they haven"t said no. So there"s a good chance that they may consent to star in his next together. Sajid Khan reported said that the two stars didn"t refuse on being asked so there"s always a possibility.
Sajid is presently gearing up for the release of his film Housefull starring Akshay, Lara Dutta and Deepika Padukone. He has cast Akshay in both of his directorial ventures Heyy Baby and the upcoming Housefull. It may be recalled that Shahrukh had done a special appearance in the song Mast Kalandar in Heyy Baby, where grooved along with Akshay and Ritesh. Sajid"s sister Farah Khan is SRK"s buddy and has worked with him in all her projects. But while she makes the switch to Akshay in her next Tees Maar Khan, Sajid prefers to have both superstars in his film. He is confident of doing justice to their talents. It will surely be interesting to see the two Bollywood luminaries share screen space.
