Kumar and Shahrukh Khan may not be the best of
friends, but Akshay, who is always pitted against Shahrukh, says
that he has the highest regard for King Khan.
Earlier it was planned that both Akshay Kumar's Once Upon A
Time In Dobara and Shahrukh Khan's Chennai Express
will release on Eid. But later, Balaji Motion Pictures postponed
the release of Akshay's movie on Shahrukh's request. When a leading
daily asked Akshay about competing with Shahrukh, the actor said,
"I have the highest regard and respect for Shahrukh Khan. And
honestly, I don't worry about people pitting us against each
Akshay Kumar further added, "Over the years, I have been pitted
against other Khans - Aamir, Salman and SRK. More than anything
else, I take it as a big compliment."
Now, Akshay Kumar's Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai Dobara
(OUATIMD), which also stars Imraan Khan and Sonakshi
Sinha, will hit the screens on 15 August.
