Mumbai: There was a time when Akshay Kumar and Farah Khan were the closest of friends. Apart from their collaboration on Tees Maar Khan, Akshay had also worked with Farah’s brother Sajid on such blockbuster hits as Heyy Baby and the Housefull series. Even the disastrous fate of Jaan-e-mann, Farah’s husband Shirish Kunder’s directorial debut that starred Akshay— didn’t dampen the friendship.
But when Akshay and Shirish had creative differences during the making of Joker (which also bombed at the box office), the buzz in B-town was all about the cracks that seemed to have developed in the Farah-Akki friendship. Some reports even claimed that the two were not on talking terms.
However, it now appears that all is well between the duo. Just last week, Akshay and Farah were spotted at a suburban hotel in Mumbai with their respective children. “Look, it’s not as though they were enemies. Yes, there were some creative differences, but that was over three years ago,” a source close to Farah’s family told us.
“Farah and Akshay are both mature professionals,” the source added. “They don’t let such issues fester. When they met up, their equation was as warm as it has always been.”
Farah is currently wrapping up Happy New Year while Akshay is busy with Singh is Bling.
