Talk about burying the hatchet! Ex-flames Shilpa Shetty and Akshay Kumar are rumoured to be starring opposite each other in an upcoming film. The interesting part is, Shilpa offered the part to Akshay herself as the film will be made under her production banner.
It’s interesting to note that both celebrities have witnessed a recent career surge. After a hat-trick of successes, Akshay Kumar is currently the “Kinng” of the box office while Shilpa Shetty hogged headlines after conquering London through her racism episode during Celebrity Big Brother.
As for the film in question, it is primarily the story of two women. Shilpa will be playing one role and the second role has been offered to Bipasha Basu who will most likely be signing on very soon. Akshay on the other hand is yet to be finalised, but an insider tells Mumbai Mirror, “Yes, there is a very interesting role for Akshay in the film, and he has been approached. But everything is not finalised yet.”
It certainly looks like both actors have matured quite a bit since their relationship and are willing to let the past remain just that–the past.
