The tinsel town love affairs have always kept the spectators on their toes. Despite the fact that we have watched countless love affairs and are aware of the nasty breakups, there are still some renowned Bollywood stars whose love life has not been extensively examined by the public.
And, among others on the list, Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar’s Khiladi has earned a spot. While we already swoon over the actor’s bloodcurdling stunts and graceful attitude, he is one of the fittest performers in the Bollywood industry, and he can still be a huge competitor for any newcomer.
Back in his day, before settling down with his current wife Twinkle Khanna, the actor was a well-known Casanova. As a result, we’ve compiled a list of some of the actor’s most famous love affairs that made headlines. Let us take a look:
Shilpa Shetty and Akshay Kumar
Are you one of those who had high expectations for this duo after seeing them perform as a Jodi in the film Dhadkan? We most certainly did! Akshay Kumar is rumoured to have dated actress Shilpa Shetty for about a year and they look great together. Things turned sour when Shilpa discovered that he was dating both her and his present wife, Twinkle Khanna, at the same time. The couple kept their relationship a secret and parted on a sour note.
Priyanka Chopra and Akshay Kumar
The sensual closeness of the pair in the film Aitraaz made us all assume that they would have formed a perfect relationship in real life as well. After four films, their unusual chemistry began to shine through offscreen as well! Despite being married to Twinkle Khanna at the time, Priyanka’s intense friendship with Akshay Kumar began to make headlines, and they quickly became a hot issue for audiences.
None of them spoke about their intense friendship, and the actor was even seen happy in his marriage life, despite the suspicions. However, soon after, reports surfaced that Akshay Kumar was not permitted to work on any projects with actress Priyanka Chopra due to restrictions imposed by his wife, Twinkle Khanna. This broke the hearts of millions since they would no longer be able to witness this incredible duo on screen again.
Raveena Tandon with Akshay Kumar
“Tip tip paani!” Who wouldn’t fall in love with each other after such a sensual performance!? Suryavanshi has developed a revised rendition and the enchantment of this song all over again in the upcoming film, leaving fans in a state of nostalgia recalling the brilliance of the original performance.
While there is no comparison to the original, there was a point in the 1990s when the combo of Raveena and Akshay was regarded as one of the most popular. They dated for three years after becoming friends during the filming of Mohra in 1994 and starting dating in 1995. And just as everyone was getting excited for their wedding, the couple shocked their followers by announcing their divorce.
When asked what went wrong, the actress stated that she was immensely uncomfortable with Akshay’s over-friendly demeanour towards his female co-stars, especially actors Rekha and Shilpa Shetty, which eventually led to their heartbreaking split. And, if rumours are to be believed, the couple was also said to be involved in a private ceremony.
Ayesha Jhulka and Akshay Kumar
With their popular film, Khiladi, the Bollywood actress Ayesha Jhulkha and Akshay Kumar’s on-screen chemistry became a great hit on the silver screen. Following this, the duo’s odd relationship drew attention away from the screen, and they were spotted together on several occasions. While they were reported to be dating, the couple called it quits soon after!
Rekha and Akshay Kumar
Rekha, the seasoned actress, has been linked to a number of celebrities over her career. And, while we already know about one of the actress’s most famous love affairs, Bollywood’s Khiladi, Akshay Kumar has also made his mark. This happened back in 1996 during the shoot of the film Khiladiyon Ka Khiladi, when the couple started growing close to each other. It is regarded as one of the biggest surprises for spectators.
According to reports, Rekha fell for the actor’s persona, who was already dating Raveena at the time. And, if stories are to be believed, it was Raveena who advised Rekha to keep her distance from Akshay.
Pooja Batra and Akshay Kumar
This point is especially significant in the list because they were engaged to each other before embarking on a filmmaking career. Pooja, who was a well-known model at the time, was said to be the reason Akshay was able to break into the profession. Despite overcoming adversity and sticking together for years, the couple was forced to part ways.
