‘Yes, I fixed Asin’s marriage’
Actor Akshay Kumar has revealed that it was he who played matchmaker for actor Asin, who recently announced her engagement to Delhibased business honcho Rahul Sharma. “I’ve been hiding this for three-and-a-half to four years. Yes, I got them to meet and Jacqueline (Fernandez; actor) was also a part of it, but she didn’t realise it because I played it very slyly,” says Akshay, who is best friends with Rahul and has worked with Asin in Khiladi 786 (2012) and Housefull 2 (2012). Rahul is 39, a good 10 years older to Asin.
About how he brought the couple together, Akshay says, “It was during Housefull 2 and we were in Delhi. Don’t laugh, but we were playing hide and seek, and I made the two of them hide together in one cupboard. That is how it started and it is so nice that they are getting married now.”
