Akshay Kumar and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan are one of the most good-looking on-screen pairs of Bollywood. Unfortunately the two did not do many films together.
We recently came across an old interview of Akshay Kumar in which he talked about working with Aishwarya Rai and why he thought that Aish is no diva.
Akshay On His Chemistry With Aishwarya
In an interview To Indian Express, Akshay had said, ''Our on-screen relationship in Khakee was quite unconventional and actually came with a chilling twist.''
Odd That We Did Not Work Together Even After People Liked Us
''Still, people had really liked us in Khakee and it is rather odd that Aishwarya Rai and I did not work together after that.''
Aishwarya Rai Is Simply Fabulous
"Ash is simply fabulous and one of the reasons that we shared incredible compatibility as actors and people is because she brings in the same focus, energy and discipline to her work as I do.''
Aishwarya Is Not A Diva
"Aishwarya Rai is not a diva. She does not throw tantrums. She does not come with any baggage whatsoever and is an extremely easy person to work with.''
It's Refreshing To Work With Her
"It's refreshing to work with someone In Khakee with whom I have not worked with for a while."
When Akshay Helped An Injured Aishwarya On The Sets Of Khakee
Not many are aware that during the shoot of the film in Trimbakeshwar, about 25 km from Nashik, Aishwarya Rai was hit by an out-of-control jeep and was thrown back to the bushes by the side of the road and Akshay was the one who helped her out.
Aishwarya Was Badly Hurt
She suffered a fracture on her left foot and some bruises. As per the reports, the actress also had ten stitches and was told to rest for a month.
I Didn't Save Aishwarya's Life: Akshay
''Let me clarify. I did not 'save' Aishwarya Rai's life. That sounds very dramatic. I just happened to be there when she was in a distressed situation.''
I Just Drove Her To The Hospital: Akki
''So I did the most logical thing: I drove her to a hospital. That is it. I would do the same for anyone.''
Action Replay Was Their Last Film Together
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Akshay Kumar were last seen together in Vipul Shah's Action Replay in 2010. The two didn't work together after that and we still wonder why.
Before going, let us tell you one interesting fact about the two actors. Much before Khakee, the producers of Mohra had approached Aishwarya Rai Bachchan to star opposite Akshay Kumar in the film but she refused the offer as she was tied up with her Miss World assignment.
