“I go to sleep when Akshay is waking up."
The King of Bollywood Shah Rukh Khan revealed that he can never work with fellow superstar Akshay Kumar for one very hilarious yet important reason.
There is always a lot of interest in films when big stars in Bollywood collaborate. Typically, fans always question when the Khans, namely SRK, Salman Khan and Aamir Khan will work together.
Another highly-anticipated collaboration is the Khans with Akshay Kumar.
However, it appears Shah Rukh Khan and Akshay Kumar will not be seen on the big screen together much to the dismay of their fans.
Previously, in an interview with DNA, SRK was asked whether he wants to work with Akshay but SRK stated that it would be very impractical to do so. He added:
“What do I say to this? I don’t wake up as early as him.”
Explaining why this would be a problem, Shah Rukh revealed that he prefers to work late nights, unlike Akshay. He said:
“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.”
SRK further added that even if they were cast together, they would probably never meet on set.
“It will be fun to act with Akshay. Dono set pe hi nahin milenge. Woh jaa raha hoga aur main aa raha hounga. (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.”
Akshay Kumar is well-known for his strict schedule and ensures filming for his films start early in the morning.
Unfortunately, Shah Rukh Khan is the opposite as he is a night owl. So it seems fans will never get to see these two stars on the big screen.
Meanwhile, on the work front, SRK is reportedly set to make a comeback with Pathan after two years away from the big screen.
While Akshay Kumar’s Laxmii released on Monday, 9 November 2020 and received mixed reviews. According to the Hindustan Times:
“Laxmii is a large-scale film that definitely would have invited whistles and claps in single screen theatres, but watching it on your devices, it’s just about passable.
“More critical audiences, however, might find it slightly problematic.”
