Raveena Tandon has stated that she and Akshay Kumar are still friends and that she thinks very highly of him, days after the two were spotted at the Hindustan Times India's Most Stylish 2023 event in Mumbai. Twenty years have passed since Raveena and Akshay's engagement was broken off due to a deterioration in their relationship.

Before the month was over, Akshay had won the Style Hall of Fame Male Award at the ceremony. As soon as Raveena called his name, the actor stepped up to the stage and gave her a hug. She then handed him the trophy.

In an interview with ETimes, Raveena talked about her coworkers, saying that Ajay Devgn and she did six or seven films. Together, Sunny Deol and she made a fantastic pair. They were also just offered a film to make together. Her friendship with Akshay continues. Everyone has a path they must follow, honour it, and go on with their lives. She has the highest regard for him. To her, Akshay represents a cornerstone of the industry.


Raveena even enjoyed working with Nana Patekar. Many people probably didn't get along with him, but they had a great time working together. Seeing Naseeruddin Shah perform is a fantastic sight for her. The actor had recently had the pleasure of working with the notoriously terrifying Mohan Babu, and it turns out that they get along famously. She also has a close friendship with Naga Chaitanya. When Prabhas told her he had a crush on her, it boosted her pride.

The 1994 film Mohra marked the first time that Raveena and Akshay Kumar shared the screen. Soon after, the two actors began dating. In addition to Khiladiyon Ka Khiladi and Main Khiladi Tu Anari, Akshay and Raveena have co-starred in films like Barood, Aan: Men at Work and Police Force: An Inside Story.

In the '90s, as Raveena recalled, the couple were engaged. Yet they went their separate ways. In 2001, Akshay wed Twinkle Khanna, and in 2004, Raveena wed Anil Thadani.

In January of this year, Raveena told ANI that they were a hit pair during Mohra, and even now, when they bump into each other socially, they all meet and chat. This was in reference to her and Akshay Kumar. She added that people change and evolve. In college, it seems like every girl has a new boyfriend every week, but the memory of one failed engagement will never leave her, and she has no idea why.
