Actor Vidya Balan (right) and Akshay Kumar recently met and reminisced their Heyy Babby days. The story goes that Akshay, who was last seen on the big screen in Special 26, was shooting a song for Once Upon a Time in Mumbaai Again at Mumbai’s Mehboob studio and Vidya, who was last seen as Vidya Bagchi in Kahaani in 2012, was also shooting at the same location for her upcoming film Shaadi Ke Side Effects, which is being helmed by Saket Chaudhary and also stars Farhan Akhtar.
That is where the two of them bumped into each other. “Akshay called Vidya to his set and even made Vidya hear the song which he was shooting for. She was really happy about it,” says a source from the production house, Balaji Telefilms.
The source adds, “Both of them then chatted inside Akshay’s vanity van and reminisced about their Heyy Babyy days. They even watched Heyy Babyy videos on YouTube. Akshay even pulled Vidya’s leg as they both laughed and talked about their experience of working together.”
For the uninitiated, Akshay and Vidya had worked together in filmmaker Sajid Khan’s Heyy Babyy, which also starred Riteish Deshmukh and Fardeen Khan, and Priyadarshan’s psychological horror comedy Bhool Bhulaiyaa. Both the films released way back in the year 2007.
