Bollywood’s wagging tongues credited it all to Akshay’s penchant for snipping the characters of his co-actors, but John has set all that rumours at rest.
“There are always speculation of rivalries and all that when 2 actors are cast jointly,” John Abraham says with his trademark candour. “But no such thing has occurred along with Akshay and me before or during Desi Boyz. Not just me, Akshay wouldn’t do that to anybody.” John Abraham adds, “Akshay Kumar has been like an elder brother, his response is so gracious. He’s guided me.”
