Shah Rukh Khan has had a stellar year professionally what with the releases of the smash hits Pathaan and Jawan. Film stars have been congratulating the superstar for the success of Jawan incessantly. With the latest addition being Akshay Kumar. The actor shared a news article abut Jawan‘s box office success on his X profile (earlier known as Twitter). He wrote, “What massive success! Congratulations my Jawan Pathaan Shah Rukh Khan. Our films are back and how.” Of course Shah Rukh Khan replied to Akshay Kumar. He wrote, “Aap ne dua maangi na hum sab ke liye toh kaise khaali jayegi. All the best and stay healthy Khiladi! Love u (It’s because of your wishes for all of us, they had to come true).”
The closest Shah Rukh Khan and Akshay Kumar came to sharing screen space was in SRK’s 1997 film Dil To Pagal Hai, in which Akshay Kumar had a cameo appearance. Akshay later featured in a cameo in the 2007 film Om Shanti Om. Shah Rukh Khan featured in Akshay’s Heyy Babyy song Mast Kalandar the same year.
