MUMBAI, June 29 (Online): Katrina Kaif, while shooting for Sheila Ki Jawaani, wanted to tie Akshay Kumar a rakhi but he refused. She then wanted Arjun Kapoor to be her ‘rakhi brother’.
Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif established themselves as a successful onscreen pair with hits such as Welcome, Namaste London and Singh Is Kinng. But did you know that she once wanted to tie him a rakhi?
During an appearance on Koffee With Karan in 2016, Katrina Kaif talked about how she wanted to tie Akshay Kumar a rakhi during the shoot of Sheila Ki Jawaani from Tees Maar Khan, but he refused. She then wanted to make Arjun Kapoor her ‘rakhi brother’. The rakhi is an amulet tied by a sister on her brother’s wrist as a symbol of protection against harm.
Katrina recalled being on the set of Tees Maar Khan, in her gold choli, wondering why no one wanted her to tie them a rakhi. She said, “Nobody is there, nobody is really paying any attention to me. Who do I see walking in the door? A person I have great regard for, a person who I consider a dear friend, and according to me, I don’t see anything wrong with it. So I asked him, ‘Can I tie you a rakhi?’ And Akshay Kumar says, ‘Katrina, do you want a slap?’”
