There was time when Akshay Kumar was working in a string of movies with Katrina Kaif. DE DANA DAN, SINGH IS KINNG, WELCOME and NAMASTEY LONDON were all successful films with HUM KO DEEWANA KAR GAYE turning out to be a safe venture as well. However, now he is being seen with Deepika Padukone (HOUSEFULL), Trisha Krishnan (KHATTA MEETHA), Aishwarya Rai (ACTION REPLAYY), Anushka Sharma (PATIALA HOUSE) and Sonam Kapoor (THANK YOU). Isn't it surprising that people still talk about her jodi with Katrina being overexposed when the only film with the two of them next is TEES MAAR KHAN?
"Oh, don’t worry about it," says Akshay in a lighter vein, "When I make a movie with Katrina, people say “What? You are working with her again???”. On the other hand when I don’t make a movie with her for some time, people say, “Oh, why didn’t you take Kat, you’re the best onscreen couple”. It just depends on whom are you talking with. In any case, we only release one movie a year together, so I really won’t be listening to the complaints."
While Akshay looks for that big film in 2011 where he could possibly be seen with Katrina Kaif again, the wait continues for the leading lady of JOKER to be finalised. As things stand today, it won't be Katrina Kaif as the toss up is between Deepika Padukone and Sonakshi Sinha.
