Akshay Kumar and Priyanka Chopra, who had stopped working together in spite of doing successful films like “Aitraaz” and “Mujhse Shaadi Karogi”, came together after a four-year gap for a show in Hong Kong.
Akshay and Priyanka performed together on stage Thursday for Christmas at the Convention Centre in Hong Kong for the show – From Chandni Chowk To Hong Kong.
“Yes, I performed on stage with Akshay Kumar in Hong Kong. It was great fun,” Priyanka, who has delivered two hits in the row – “Fashion” and “Dostana” – told reporters.
And what a rollicking show it was! Audiences have been craving to see the hit pair together for three years. Joining the pair was Bipasha Basu.
For reasons best known to them, Akshay and Priyanka, who came together for the first time in “Andaaz”, were never seen as a couple on screen after “Waqt – Race Against Time”. So deep was the cleft between the pair that Suneel Darshan had to scrap an Akshay-Priyanka starrer after picturising a song with them.
After Priyanka drifted away, Akshay tried to form a screen pair with Kareena Kapoor by doing some not so successful films like “Talaash”, “Bewafaa” and “Tashan”. When that didn`t work too well, the actor turned to Katrina Kaif for professional sustenance.
But now it seems the ice has thawed.
