‘Dono Set Par Hi Nahi Milenge’, When SRK Revealed Why He’ll Never Work With Akshay Kumar

Bollywood is a big industry with really, really big superstars like Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan, Aamir Khan, Amitabh Bachchan, Akshay Kumar, and others creating back to back hits.

It’s said that the name of these superstars is enough to get the audiences to the movie halls regardless of how the movie actually is. That’s what the star power is at play here.

Now, while usually these stars would be strategically placing the releases of their respective movies so as not to have a clash with the movies of other stars, we are seeing more and more superstars join powers to make their films a bigger attraction.

A few recent examples of this are Sooryavanshi which had Akshay Kumar, Ajay Devgn, and Ranveer Singh, with audiences really flooding movie halls to witness the spectacle.

Moreover, upcoming movies like Shah Rukh’s Pathan will see Salman Khan come in a cameo. The same goes for Aamir Khan’s Laal Singh Chaddha which will have Salman as well.

Now, having said that, what about a possible collaboration between Akshay and Shah Rukh, who are both without a doubt the most bankable stars in the industry?

Well, this would have been possible had Shah Rukh Khan not revealed otherwise.

Yep! Shah Rukh once revealed how he and Akshay will never work together.

The two actors had worked in Yash Chopra’s superhit Dil Toh Pagal Hai in 1997, where Akshay had sort of a cameo role.

However, since then, the two have had just brief appearances in each other’s films, with Hey Babyy and Om Shanti Om. So, what is the reason behind them not working together?

A few years, as per reports, Shah Rukh actually shed some light on. Speaking in an interview with DNA, the Bollywood Badshah said, “What do I say to this? I don’t wake up as early as him (Akshay). I go to sleep when Akshay is waking up. His day starts early. By the time I start working, he is packing up and going home. So, he can put in more hours of work. I’m a nocturnal person. Not many people are fond of shooting at night like me.”

“It will be fun to act with Akshay. Dono set pe hi nahin milenge. Woh jaa raha hoga aur main aa raha hounga (We will never meet on the set). He’ll be leaving the set and I’ll be coming in. I would like to work like Akshay and with him, but our timings won’t match.”

Such a shame!

Well, at least, we’ll get to see them in their own movies nonetheless.

While Shah Rukh is obviously busy with Pathan, Akshay will be seen in Bade Miyan Chote Miyan 2 alongside Tiger Shroff, for which he is reported to charge a staggering sum of Rs. 165-170 Crores . Insane!
