Mumbai: Despite all the hype and hoopla surrounding Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan and Akshay Kumar’s renewed friendship, news has it that SRK is yet to receive Akshay Kumar’s gift – a costly wristwatch.
Earlier, tabloids were rife with reports of SRK sending a text message to Akshay, congratulating him for the success of ‘Housefull.’ It was also reported that King Khan was so impressed with Khiladi Kumar that he sent him an expensive wristwatch, which was followed by Akshay’s high-priced gift – a wristwatch to the reigning star of Bollywood.
Talking to a news daily, the staff members of SRK categorically denied receiving any such gift from Akshay. “Shah Rukh has not received any watch from any of his Bollywood colleagues. We don’t know how Akshay or whoever in his place is claiming this sudden exchange of gifts. But Shah Rukh is in Delhi at the moment and neither he nor Gauri has received any gift packet from Akshay,” the staff members said.
However, the staff members were quick to add that of late, SRK didn’t present any wristwatch to Akshay as they added, “Three years ago during the shooting of a song for his home production ‘Om Shanti Om’, Shah Rukh had sent out gift packets to all his colleagues who had shot for an item number in the movie. The packet contained a gold coin, a costly watch and a mobile phone. He had done that again for his industry friends who dropped by on the sets of his TV reality show. He might or might not have sent one of those packets to Akshay then.”
