Mumbai: Akshay Kumar has brushed off reports that he had a fight with co-star Katrina Kaif while shooting a qawalli number for `Tees Maar Khan` in the city.

They are one of the most successful onscreen pair in current times after starring in number of hits like `Singh Is Kingg` and `Welcome`.

And Akshay, who plays a crook in the Farah Khan directed film, has rubbished reports of tension between him and Kaif.

"Katrina and I go back a long way and she is a dear friend of mine and has always been there. I would like to clarify that she is one of the most professional stars we have and she and I are amused with these reports since there is absolutely no truth to them," Akshay said in a statement.

Backing his comments director-choreographer Farah Khan said, "There is absolutely no problem between any of us. Katrina is a wonderful girl and very professional. She has done a great job in Tees Maar Khan."

According to reports Kaif was apparently unable to provide dates for a music video that led to the tiff.

"Katrina`s schedule is as hectic as ever ?she is currently shooting for a Yash Raj film, Zoya`s film and Dostana 2. But she made sure she devoted dates for the music video and flew down to shoot it. She shares a great rapport with Akshay Kumar and Farah Khan," a source close to the actress said.

The film, which sees Kaif donning the role of a wannabe item girl, will be complete after the qawalli number.
