Actors Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif may not have done any movie together for almost two years now, but insiders reveal that the two are really keen to work with each other again. “They both have been rather busy with their respective films, but the two still keep in touch whenever they can,” says a source. In fact, sources close to the actors reveal that Katrina was apparently one of the first ones from the industry to call up and wish him and wife Twinkle for her second pregnancy.
Adds the source, “It’s been a while that the two have been paired up on screen, but it’s purely a date hassle for both. Katrina is right now busy with her films with the Khans - Ek Tha Tiger with Salman Khan, Dhoom 3 with Aamir and Yeh Kahaan Aa Gaye Hum with Shahrukh Khan - and Akshay too is busy with almost six films in hand (Khiladi 786, OMG, Once UponA Time in Mumbaai 2, Special Chhabis, Boss, among others), but both are are still looking forward to doing a film with each other soon.
Kat’s always been super lucky for Akshay, and their jodi apart from the SRK-Kajol pairing has given the maximum hits together in recent times. So, it’s only a matter of time for them to pair up again.”
Meanwhile, Katrina too is all praises for her former co-star. “I love working with Akshay, as I really think that he’s simply fantastic at whatever he does. We’ve done some great films together and it’s always fun working with him,” says the actor, who’s currently shooting for the Yash Chopra film with SRK, and also prepping for her role in Dhoom 3. According to a source, Katrina Kaif has had to turn down several plum offers off late, as her dates are blocked for more than a year. “She has been the first choice of many filmmakers, but she’s had to turn them down because of her choc-a-bloc schedule. In fact, she’s even had to turn down offers that she would have loved to take up otherwise,” says the source close to the actor.
The actor who’s following a rather strict diet and exercise regime is apparently being helped by Salman Khan. “Salman has been giving Katrina tips on fitness ever since she started work with him on Ek Tha Tiger. But now, apparently, even Aamir Khan and Salman Khan are sharing tips with each other. Aamir Khan is known to be quite a perfectionist, so he is taking extreme care about his own diet,” says an insider.
