There was a time when Akshay Kumar and Priyanka Chopra were believed to be very close. Rumour has it that Akshay and Priyanka started dating during the shoot of the movie Aitraaz in 2004. But Akshay's wifey Twinkle Khanna objected and warned her husband (more about it later).
Now it's been more than 10 years since Priyanka Chopra and Akshay Kumar last worked together. The two were seen last on-screen in Waqt in 2005. In a recent interview with Rajat Sharma, Akshay Kumar was asked about Priyanka Chopra and you must read what he said.
When Asked About Not Working With Priyanka Chopra
"There is nothing like that. I have worked on five films with Priyanka. It's not like I don't want to work with her. Except for Rani Mukerji, I have worked with every heroine. If there is an opportunity, I will surely work with Priyanka Chopra."
When Asked About His Problems With Priyanka, Farah & Ekta
"Let us call Priyanka Chopra, Ekta Kapoor and Farah Khan and check if they have any issue with me. That way you will know for sure."
How Priyanka & Akshay's Relationship Ended?
Reportedly, Twinkle Khanna threatened to leave Akshay Kumar and made him swear to never take up any project with PeeCee. As a married family guy with a two-year-old son, he ended his relationship with Priyanka Chopra.
When Priyanka Chopra Was Asked About The Same
In 2014, a reporter had asked Priyanka Chopra about the stories that claimed that Akshay will never work with her again, to which she said, "Firstly, I don't think he said that. Secondly, I pick up projects on the basis of good scripts and not actors."
Is Akshay Ready To Bury That Hatchet?
A few days ago, Akshay Kumar had praised Priyanka Chopra for the work she is doing in the West, he had said, "She deserves it. She has done a good job. She is making us proud." Well, we wonder what Priyanka has to say on this.
On The Work Front
On the films front, Akshay Kumar is all set to woo his fans again with his upcoming film Jolly LLB 2. This is the first time, Akshay Kumar is playing the role of a lawyer in a movie.
Talking about Jolly LLB, Akshay had told a daily, "It is a social satire and It is a story based on real incidents.'' He added, ''I will start shooting for Padman from the first week of March. It is real story like you all know, but we will take a few cinematic liberties."
Apart from Jolly LLB 2 and Padman, Akshay Kumar will also be seen in Toilet: Ek Prem Katha with Bhumi Pednekar.
