New Delhi: Akshay Kumar is one of the finest actors of Bollywood. The actor is quite popular for his talent and his action sequences. However, apart from his movies, what else had grabbed attention about Akshay is his ‘playboy' image.
The ‘Airlift' actor has been a heart throb to numerous Bollywood divas who were ready to lose their everything for him.
In fact, Akshay's love life has always been in the limelight. While Akshay had dated several actresses before marrying Twinkle Khanna, his alleged affair with veteran actress Rekha raised many eyebrows.
As per the media reports, Akhsay and Rekha fell in love while shooting for ‘Khiladiyon Ka Khiladi'. However, their affair was short-lived and soon Akshay moved on with Raveena Tandon. In fact, the ‘Mohra' actress had also asked Rekha to back off and maintain her distance from Akshay.
But during an interview, Raveena had shared an extremely different side of the story as she revealed that Akshay was never after Rekha and would always run away from her.
“I don't want to say too much on the subject. I don't think Akshay ever had anything to do with Rekha. As a matter of fact, he would run away from her. Akshay tolerated Rekha because of the film. At one point she wanted to get lunch dabbas for him from home. That's when I put my foot down. I felt it was taking things a bit too far. She's a wonderful person, but she should learn where to draw the line,” Raveena was quoted saying.
Well, that was indeed an unexpected revelation made by the diva then.
Raveena dated Akshay for good three years, before calling it quits. After break up, she married film distributor Anil Thadani in 2004.
