We always used to wonder why two of the biggest movie stars Shah Rukh Khan and Akshay Kumar have never come together for a full-fledged film. But in a recent interview with an Indian leading daily, Zero star confessed that he's all game to work with the Good News actor; however, their work schedule could never match.
During the chat, when SRK was asked if he would like to do three films or more in a year or would he like to star opposite Akshay Kumar in a film. He replied, “What do I say to this? I don’t wake up as early as him. I go to sleep when Akshay is waking up. His day starts early. By the time I start working, he is packing up and going home. So he can put in more hours of work. I’m a nocturnal person. Not many people are fond of shooting at night like me.”
He further explained that even if the two of them sign a film together, they'd never be able to meet on the sets as the time Kumar winds up his shoots is when King Khan appears. He added, “It will be fun to act with Akshay. Dono set pe hi nahin milenge. Woh jaa raha hoga aur main aa raha hounga (laughs). He’ll be leaving the set and I’ll be coming in. I would like to work like Akshay and with him, but our timings won’t match.” Although Akshay and Shah Rukh are pretty-good friends who go for cricket matches together and has done cameos in each-others films as well but never appeared in a full-fledged film until now.
On the work front, Akshay Kumar has five releases in 2019 including Good News, Kesari, Housefull 4, Mission Mangal and Sooryavanshi; whereas Shah Rukh Khan will remain absent from the silver screen this year as he's busy shooting to Don 3 that is slated for an early 2020 release.
