7 Highly Educated Indian Cricketers
Superstar Akshay Kumar is currently in the best phase of his life, personally and professionally. It’s not a hidden fact that the ‘Khiladi’ had some past relationships with actresses Raveena Tandon and Shilpa Shetty Kundra during his initial days in the industry. Post his breakup with actress Raveena Tondon with whom he was secretly engaged, he had started dating Shilpa Shetty. Both of them had worked in a couple of films like ‘Main Khiladi Tu Anari’, ‘Insaaf’ and ‘Dhadkan’ where they fall in love with each other. But destiny had other plans and both of them parted ways. Their breakup came to limelight when Shilpa chose to speak about her relationship with Akshay in an interview, which brought out some shocking revelations about the actor.
As this interview was taken after Shilpa’s breakup with Akshay, she spoke about that period and how she was upset over it. She said, “It has been a rough period personally. But I’m glad that the ordeal is over. After every dark cloud, there’s always a silver lining. All this while though things were going well professionally, my personal life was pulling me down. It feels good that it’s finally behind me.”
In a way the reason behind this was their film ‘Dhadkan’ which would perhaps have been jeopardised. Shilpa said in an interview, “I wanted our film to get over and released, so that it wouldn’t come in the way of my producers. I couldn’t harass them just because my personal life was turning into shambles.
Shilpa’s anger knew no bounds while giving this interview as she said, “Besides, I was very angry and wanted to let him know that he could not get away with murder.” Further, she even talked about Twinkle Khanna, whom Akshay married after their breakup. “No, I’m not at all upset with her. What’s her fault if my man was cheating on me? There is no point blaming any other woman, it was entirely his fault,” said Shilpa referring to Twinkle.
Perhaps, this statement of Shilpa was the biggest accusation she made on Akshay when she said, “Akshay Kumar used me and conveniently dropped me after he found someone else. The only person, I was upset with was him. But I’m sure he’ll get it all back.”
The hatred Shilpa Shetty had for Akshay Kumar after this episode, it seemed uncertain that they would ever reunite. But, certainly Shilpa moved on in her life leaving her past behind. “It’s not easy to forget the past so soon, but I’m glad I’ve had the strength to move on.
