Contrary to the reports that suggested that he has declined a film with Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Akshay commented, “Who in their right mind would ever decline a Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra – Aishwarya Rai Bachchan film? It would have been my honor to work with Aishwarya and Rakeysh sir. Yes, I had auditioned for the film and even got shortlisted but unfortunately I wasn’t the one who was finalized for the role and these things happen. I would have loved to be the one to receive that final call from the producers but maybe next time.”
Well, that’s really brave of the young actor to come out and say that.
Akshay will be soon seen in Akshat Verma’s Kaalakaandi, where he plays the role of Saif Ali Khan’s brother.
