Akshay Khanna and Priyanka Chopra’s vibes on sets for Aap Ki Khatir
Akshay Khanna and Priyanka Chopra will soon be seen together on-screen for Dharmesh Darshan’s film Aap Ki Khatir . The film also stars Dino Morea, Suniel Shetty and Amisha Patel. Priyanka and Akshay share a fairly good on-screen chemistry but according to sources at the beginning of the shoot, the duo did not get along too well. In fact Akshay and Priyanka did not speak off-screen at all to each other for the first 20 days of the first schedule.
After the two were introduced as co-stars by the director, they merely exchanged a polite hello and went about doing their own thing. According to sources “They were shooting in London for two months and it took nearly 20 days for Akshaye to open up to Priyanka. Akshay is an introvert and generally takes time to mingle with people while Priyanka is outgoing and jovial, she usually shares a good rapport with all her co-stars.” Unfortunately though Akshay was always lost in his own world and refused to open up towards Priyanka. Director Dharmesh too noticed the cold vibes and was worried that their off-screen attitude would translate into their on-screen image.
Earlier on the sets of 36 China Town, where Priyanka had a small cameo, the two had a small tiff regarding their shoes. Priyanka confirms that the two had a slow start and says “Akshay is like a child in so many ways. He just takes time to open up with people. We both had a rocky start but now it has turned into a much smoother working relationship.” Priyanka also had to enact some romantic scenes with Akshay and due to their poor off-screen chemistry, she was a bit uncomfortable. Finally it was Akshaye who decided to break the ice; he approached Priyanka and began to make conversation with her.
Priyanka will also be seen in Farhan Akhtar’s remake of Don alongside Shahrukh Khan. Priyanka recently presented a speech at the Global Leadership forum in Malaysia.
