Akshay Kumar

He’s got the gun. He’s got the game. He’s got the girl too.

Off screen, Akshay Kumar has been linked with almost all his heroines.

One cannot deny that, Akshay Kumar’s on screen chemistry with most actresses sizzled as well.

The hunk paired well with almost all his co-stars.

Here’s a list of the actresses that compliment him the best:


Ayesha Jhulka
Ayesha Jhulka and Akshay worked together for the first time in Abbas Mastan’s Khiladi.

The film not only gave the two a much-needed hit, but also established them as a fresh pair to look forward to.

Post Khiladi, the duo worked together in several films like Jai Kishen, Dil Ki Baazi and Waqt Hamara Hai.

They were often referred to as the Mithun Chakravarthy-Ranjeeta of 90’s.


Raveena Tandon
Her vivacious and extrovert reserve matched perfectly with his reserved, macho power.

The mast mast jodi became exceedingly popular after Rajiv Rai’s Mohra. Cashing in the success of Mohra, the two signed half a dozen films together and the inevitable struck. Reel romance took a real turn.

Though besides Umesh Mehra’s Khiladiyon Ke Khiladi, all of their films (Daava, Barood) together met with an abysmal fate at the BO.

Ditto for their affair. The duo got engaged only to break off on a bitter note.


Shilpa Shetty
Tall, dusky, sporty, Shilpa Shetty proved teamed wonderfully with Akki. In their first film together (Main Khiladi Tu Anari) itself they dished a hit dance number, Churake dil mera goriya chali.

Then came Insaaf, which bombed, followed by Jaanwar, in which they weren’t paired opposite each other.

Their brief romance began and ended by the time Dhadkan, their last film as a lead couple, was released.


Karisma Kapoor
Karisma Kapoor is Akshay Kumar’s first heroine, because technically Deedar was the first film he signed. Incidentally she is also the only actress with whom he has worked in the maximum number of films with.

Strangely, the gossip mills never linked the two; instead they insinuated they had problems.

The rumors died a natural death as Akki and Lolo (Karisma’s nickname) dished film after film, including their recent Haan…Maine Bhi Pyaar Kiya.

Some of their successful endeavors together are Jaanwar, Ek Rishtaa-The Bond of Love, Dil Toh Pagal Hai (special appearance).

Akshay’s next release Talaash sees him cast opposite Karisma’s younger sibling Kareena.


Twinkle Khanna
The leading lady of Akshay’s life, Twinkle Khanna worked with him in only two films—Zulmi and International Khiladi.

Though both the films were turkeys at the BO, the duo hit it off beautifully. Their friendship bloomed into love. Love made way for marriage. They are now the proud parents of a 2 month-old-son, Araav.

Life is beautiful for Akki as he candidly admits, “When my wife is with me, I feel much more confident about myself.”
