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.”
