For quite sometime Bollywood superstar Shahrukh Khan has been making repeated attempts to strengthen his bond with Akshay Kumar.
Not so long ago, when Akshay was shooting a song for his film BLUE, Shahrukh, who was also shooting in the same vicinity, paid a surprise visit to Akshay and the two gelled well. After that, when Akshay's HOUSEFULL was about to release Shahrukh had specially requested producer Sajid to arrange a screening at his residence Mannat. Shah Rukh was so impressed by Akshay's performance in HOUSEFULL that he not only sent a congratulatory SMS to the actor but also gifted him a very expensive watch as a mark of his appreciation. Akshay, too, reciprocated Shahrukh's this friendly gesture by presenting him a high-priced wristwatch.
If this was not enough, just a month ago, the duo met up on a flight to London and bonded like buddies. They joked and laughed and later also tweeted about their mid-air experiences.
Now the latest happening is that King Khan is quite keen on watching Akki's latest release KHATTA MEETHA. Reportedly, Shah Rukh's office has requested the producers Ashtavinayak for a print, which he will be watching at the recently-built preview theatre at his residence. Shahrukh, who is currently shooting for his highly anticipated film RA.ONE in London, is planning to take the much-needed break. And during his break he would catch up with Akshay's film KHATTA MEETHA.
So do we see a gehri dost developing between Badshah & Khiladi of Bollywood?
