When Bollywood’s ex-lovers reunited to work together

MUMBAI: With Akshay Kumar joining hands with ex-flame Shilpa Shetty and her husband Raj Kundra for a business venture, we shed light on the industry’s former lovers who paired up for professional reasons…

In the ’90s, the industry used to be buzzing with stories of Akshay Kumar and Shilpa Shetty’s ‘affair’. Romance apparently blossomed on the sets of their 1994 film ‘Main Khiladi Tu Anari’, and who could miss their sizzling chemistry in the ‘Chura Ke Dil Mera’ chartbuster? However, things soured between them and their relationship ended on a bitter note – Shilpa alleged that the Khiladi was two-timing her. Needless to say, they did not work together again.
However, this seems to be in the distant past now. Akshay has teamed up with his ex-flame’s hubby Raj Kundra for a business venture. Recently, the trio came together to announce their celebrity-driven home-shopping channel.

Almost seven years ago, when Shilpa was hosting ‘Bigg Boss’, the two had shared the dais when Akshay had been invited to announce the winner of the reality show. At that time, the first signs of the ice thawing had started to show. Last year, Shilpa had invited his wife Twinkle Khanna to her son’s birthday party.
