‘Bollywood’s Khiladi and Badshah’

In a picture shared by ANI, Akshay and Shah Rukh can be seen greeting each other with a hug. Sharing it the news portal wrote, “Delhi | Actors Shah Rukh Khan and Akshay Kumar greet each other as they arrive to attend the oath ceremony of PM-designate Narendra Modi at Rashtrapati Bhavan.” 

Akshay opted for a pastel-hued formal shirt and dark trousers for the ceremony while Shah Rukh looked dapper in a dark suit, hair back in a ponytail and glasses on. The actors were also spotted socialising, greeting everyone they knew there. Shah Rukh arrived with Mukesh and Anant Ambani to the ceremony.

Fans were thrilled to see this interaction and pumped to see both the actors in one frame. “Modiji ne mila diya Shahrukh & Akshay (Modi ji helped bring Shah Rukh and Akshay together),” wrote a fan on X (formerly Twitter), while another wrote, “Best Hug of this year.”

Ek saath (Bollywood’s Khiladi and Badshah together),” and “Wow Khiladi Kumar meeting Pathaan.” One wrote, “Bollywood ke Khiladi & king ek saath.” Some fans even commented, calling them their ‘favs’.
