Bollywood stars Salman Khan and Akshay Kumar may not be the best of friends but Akshay maintains that both of them have mutual admiration for each other. "Friendship doesn't mean you meet everyday. We don't meet everyday. I haven't gone to his house or he has come to my place. We have mutual admiration for each other. I admire him and so does he," Akshay said in an interview on Mumbai.
The "Dabangg" star, Akshay and filmmaker Karan Johar are coming together for a movie slated to release in 2018. The yet-to-be titled project will be produced by Salman and Karan, while Akshay will star in the lead role. "It's for the first time that a big actor like him has signed me. It usually happens in Hollywood where one big actor signs another big actor. If this works on Bollywood it will become a trend. Hats off to Salman to put money on me," Akshay said.

If I say anything my agreement will get cancelled." According to the "Rustom" star there is still some time before the film goes on floors.
