We share mutual admiration: Akshay
“Hats off to Salman for putting money on me,” says Kumar, who will work together soon
Actors Akshay Kumar (above right) and
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.”
