They have worked together in films like Mujhse Shaadi Karogi (2004) and Jaan-e-Mann (2006). And now, two of the biggest on-screen icons — Akshay Kumar and Salman Khan — are meeting on the latter’s TV show, Bigg Boss 6.
They will be shooting for a special episode of the reality show today. In the past too, the two have come together on Salman’s TV show, Dus Ka Dum.
“Akshay and Salman have always had a very strong bond. Although they don’t talk to each other every day, they share a very warm equation. So when the idea came up (of Akshay making an appearance on Bigg Boss) Salman was more than happy about it. Otherwise, he is known to be very picky about guests on the show,” says an insider close to the show.
It’s interesting to note that 2012 has been big for both Akshay and Salman. While Salman has had a biggie in Ek Tha Tiger, which might be followed by a potential blockbuster, Dabangg 2, Akshay has had mega hits like Housefull 2, Rowdy Rathore and OMG: Oh My God!, as a producer.
