Sal­man Khan (above) may not be the best of friends but Ak­shay main­tains that they have mu­tual ad­mi­ra­tion.

“Friend­ship doesn’t mean you meet ev­ery­day. We don’t meet ev­ery­day. I haven’t gone to his house or he has come to my place. We have mu­tual ad­mi­ra­tion for each other. I ad­mire him and so does he,” says Ak­shay.

Both the actors and film­maker Karan Jo­har are com­ing to­gether for a movie slated to re­lease in 2018. The yet-to-be ti­tled project will be pro­duced by Sal­man and Karan, while Ak­shay will star in the lead role.

“It’s for the first time that a big ac­tor like him has signed me. It usu­ally hap­pens in Hol­ly­wood where one big ac­tor signs an­other big ac­tor. If this works in Bol­ly­wood it will be­come a trend. Hats off to Sal­man to put money on me,” adds Ak­shay.

On ru­mours that the film will re­volve around the Bat­tle of Sara­garhi, the 49-year-old ac­tor says, “No noth­ing is fi­nalised... ev­ery­thing is go­ing on. If I say any­thing, my agree­ment will get can­celled.” Ac­cord­ing to the ac­tor, there is still some time be­fore the film goes on floors.

In the trailer of Ak­shay’s up­com­ing film Jolly LLB 2 a sit­u­a­tion comes when he raises a ques­tion on Sal­man’s mar­riage. Talk­ing about it, he says, “Don’t worry. Don’t cre­ate any­thing. He knows ev­ery­thing. And af­ter that only he signed me.”
