Mumbai: It looks nothing less a clash of the Titans when two industry heavyweights share a common platform, wooing an ocean of audience. This is exactly what happened when Shah Rukh Khan and Akshay Kumar shared the same dais while entertaining a humongous gathering in Singapore at an award function held recently.

Director Sajid Khan, who was co-hosting the starry evening along with Akshay asked SRK to join them on stage. And a sport that SRK is, he readily agreed, only to take a dig at his contemporary Akki. Sajid, addressed the two actors as Bollywood’s ‘two most biggest superstars’ and this seemed to pinch King Khan, quite a lot.

SRK told the ‘Tees Maar Khan’ star that he has been in the film industry since Akshay was a kid. So to retaliate, Akki addressed Shah Rukh as ‘Dadaji’, honouring the fact that Khan is senior to him, both literally and otherwise.

Clarifying that the dig at SRK was scripted, Akki, while interacting with reporters said, “"Oh yes, it was all scripted. Shah Rukh told me that his movies used to come when I was a kid. So I said, `Yes `Dadaji``. We had planned it all and we did so because the audience loves such kind of masala."
