Akshay Kumar is not the kind to get into the aggressive mode with anyone, least off all a lady. But then Farah Khan who directed Akshay in the satirical catastrophe Tees Maar Khan likes to be one of the boys in the industry.
When four years ago she got into the querulous mode with Akshay all hell had broken lose. The provocation was her husband Shirish Kunder’s film Joker which Akshay had starred in. When the film turned out to be exceptionally unappetising, Akshay, breaking his normal protocol of professionalism, decided not to promote the film.
Forever the protective wife, Farah fumed and spewed venom against the otherwise-uncontroversial Akshay. They also vowed never to work together again.
Like they say, there are no permanent friendships and enmities in showbiz. On Tuesday when Akshay walked into Farah’s brother Sajid Khan’s birthday bash he ran into feisty Farah.
And here’s an eyewitness account of what happened:
“For quite a while Akshay, who had come without his wife Twinkle, and Farah avoided one another. But it’s a small world, especially at a Bollywood party. And the two found themselves face to face. Akshay and Farah spoke and the ice was broken.” We don’t know where the renewed relationship will go.
