When it comes to the Hindi film industry, there is a general consensus that the three Khans – Shah Rukh Khan, Aamir Khan, and Salman Khan – rule the roost and are guaranteed to bring in the moolah but there is another actor who is not only a Box Office favourite but is also one of the most bankable stars in Bollywood – Akshay Kumar.
Will we ever see Shah Rukh Khan collaborating with Akshay Kumar?
In an old interview with DNA, Khan was asked this very question, and true to his nature, he gave a hilariously witty response.
“What do I say to this? I don’t wake up as early as him,” Khan said.
“I go to sleep when Akshay is waking up. His day starts early. By the time I start working, he is packing up and going home. So he can put in more hours of work. I’m a nocturnal person. Not many people are fond of shooting at night like me,” Khan went on to add.
Now, we bring you another interesting #throwback story.
During one of his early appearances on the hugely popular The Kapil Sharma Show, Akshay Kumar revealed why he doesn’t attend Bollywood parties.
“Kehte hai ki aap parties mein isliye nahi jaate kyunki phir aapko bhi unhe party deni padegi aur kharcha karna padega. Yeh afwa hai ya sach hai (It is said that you don’t go to parties because you don’t want to throw any parties yourself and spend money. Is this a rumour or the truth)?” Sharma asked to which Akshay Kumar laughed and replied: “Yeh sach hai (It is the truth).”
“I love my sleep and I love to see the mornings. People who invite me to a party know that I will leave early because I have to be in bed. And let me tell you, I hate night shifts,” Akshay Kumar had also revealed during an episode of Koffee With Karan.
