Tashan, the new film from Yash Raj Films, stars two of the biggest names in Bollywood today, Akshay Kumar, and Kareena Kapoor. This is not the first time that Kareena and Akshay have worked together and in fact they have known each other for many years. Kareena has immense respect and feels really close to the actor and says Akshay is her favorite co-star.
Kareena said, “I have done about nine movies with Akshay and I have known him since he has done his first film, when he was giving his first shot. I was behind the camera so that’s the relationship I have with Akshay, its an emotional relationship, I am most comfortable with Akshay Kumar as my co-star maybe because he has seen me in my school uniform with two pigtails hanging around, so it’s a relationship which I think you feel really close to.”
Kareena has really enjoyed all their work together and has had another great experience with him for Tashan, “He is a pivotal part of this film which is a great role for him and I think working with Akshay for me is always a lot of fun and games and I just do not realize when we start shooting and when we finish. Throughout my career I think I have enjoyed working with Akshay Kumar the most and I hope to continue to work with him throughout my career.”
About Akshay’s career, especially his popularity today she said, “As of today he is completely rocking, he’s the shinning star of Bollywood. It feels great because I have been with him through the journey of his career and I feel really happy.”
Tashan also stars Saif Ali Khan and Anil Kapoor. Be sure to check it out when it releases on the 25th of April!
