Bollywood megastar Akshay Kumar has reigned over the industry for an extensive period and continues to be roped in to star as the male lead opposite Bollywood’s prominent female figures.
Addressing his recent film Good Newwz where he shares screen space with B-Town beauty Kareena Kapoor Khan, Akshay spoke about the considerable age gap that he shares with the diva.
Speaking at Hindustan Times Leadership Summit, the 39-year-old Veere Di Wedding star revealed: “I was actually behind the camera when Akshay Kumar gave his first ever shot for a movie.”
The 52-year-old Padman actor also unveiled: “When I was working with Karisma Kapoor back in the day, Kareena was so young that I would lift her up and play with her. And today she is my heroine.”
“He still does that and he’s doing that with all his heroines,” Kareena chimed in, adding: “To me, Akshay is like coming home. He’s like family. There is absolute comfort when I work with Akshay.”
