Actor Akshay Kumar has revealed that it was he who played ­matchmaker for actor Asin, who recently announced her ­engagement to Delhi-based business honcho Rahul Sharma.



“I’ve been hiding this for three-and-a-half to four years. Yes, I got them to meet and Jacqueline (Fernandez; actor) was also a part of it, but she didn’t realise it because I played it very slyly,” says Akshay, who is best friends with Rahul and has worked with Asin in Khiladi 786 (2012) and Housefull 2 (2012). Rahul is 39, a good 10 years older to Asin.



About how he brought the couple together, Akshay says, “It was ­during Housefull 2 and we were in Delhi. Don’t laugh, but we were ­playing hide and seek, and I made the two of them hide ­together in one ­cupboard. That is how it started and it is so nice that they are getting ­married now.”
