Bollywood presenter-turned-director Sajid Khan doesn't deny his dream project is to get Shah Rukh Khan and Akshay Kumar together in the lead for a film but only when he has the right script.
"The day I have a script that can carry both Akshay Kumar and Shah Rukh Khan (in the lead), I'll come out with it. Both are superstars and who wouldn't like to work with both of them in their film," said Sajid.
"I adore Shah Rukh as a fan and Akshay is my brother. But it will take a lot of time as I will write my next script in six months and then approach them... so it's a lengthy process as of now," he added.
Akshay also said the same.
"These things take time. He will first write the script that will take time and then approach us and then we'll give out the dates. So it's at least more than a year-and-half away even if everything falls in place," said the actor.
Shah Rukh and Akshay have been seen earlier in Dil Toh Pagal Hai and Heyy Babyy but never as parallel leads. While the former had Akshay in a cameo, the latter saw Shah Rukh in a special appearance only for a song.
Sajid and Akshay were here at the DT Cinemas, DLF Promenade Tuesday evening to promote Housefull. Also present with them was the other star cast of the movie including Riteish Deshmukh, Arjun Rampal, Deepika Padukone and Jiah Khan.
Lara Dutta who also plays a pivotal role in the movie did not make it to the event. Releasing on Friday, the movie has been produced by Sajid Nadiadwala.
