Akshaye’s special screening for Aamir
Akshaye Khanna and Aamir Khan are still remembered for their on-screen friendship in Dil Chahta Hai (2001). But their friendship extends beyond the big screen, and the two are said to have remained “quite close” since that film. A source says that they always kept in touch. Last week, Aamir invited Akshaye for a special screening of his new film, Secret Superstar. The source says, “They had a long chat, and during the conversation, Aamir told Akshaye that he was intrigued by the trailer of Ittefaq (Akshaye’s new film) and was looking forward to watching the film.” Ittefaq, a thriller, also stars Sidharth Malhotra and Sonakshi Sinha. After hearing this from his friend, Akshaye has apparently said to his film’s creative producer, Kapil Chopra, that a “screening needs to be organised soon” for Aamir. “The details are being worked out. Akshaye will host Aamir himself,” the source says.
