Actor Akshaye Khanna has never shared screen with Shah Rukh Khan. The two are also never seen together at any events. In fact, there has hardly been an occasion where Khan and Khanna have spoken about each other. But the Mom actor certainly has had a huge fan in Khan all these years. 

Speaking about the actor, the on-screen Raees said, “I’ve always been extremely fond of Akshaye and his acting abilities. I’m a big fan of his work. There’s a strange mystique about him that reflects in his acting. He does very little, but conveys a gamut of emotions effortlessly. As an audience, he always keeps you guessing about his character’s journey.” 

Khan is looking forward to Ittefaq, which stars Khanna, Sidharth Malhotra and Sonakshi Sinha. 

“Akshaye is unreadable and that’s one of the plus points of the film. Personally, I feel that nobody could have essayed this role better than him. Sidharth Malhotra and Sonakshi Sinha present an able foil to Akshaye’s character in the film, which just adds to his performance and portrayal of this tough, no-nonsense cop,” he added. 

Directed by debutant Abhay Chopra, the film is the official remake of Yash Chopra’s Ittefaq (1969), which starred Rajesh Khanna, and Nanda.
