He told Reddit in an interview, “I don’t think Akshay had anything to do with Rekha. In fact, he would run away from her. Akshay tolerated Rekha because of the film. At one point he went home to her. Wanted to get a lunch box. That’s when I put my foot down. I thought it was taking things too far.”
