Kareena Kapoor Khan walked down the memory lane and reminded Akshay that her sister Karisma was one of his earliest co-stars.
“This is how I know you… this is how I will always remember you… This is how I will keep reminding you that Lolo was your first co-star and you are my best co-star… you are and always will be nothing but the best. Happy birthday to the one and only Akshay Kumar,” Kareena wrote on Instagram, along with a picture of Akshay and Karisma from the set of the 1992 film, “Deedar”. The film was Akshay’s fifth release.
