Akshay certainly has something for the beauty queens.
His 'jodi' with Priyanka Chopra has always paid dividends. Starting from 'Andaaz' to 'Mujhse Shaadi Karogi', 'Aitraaz', 'Waqt' - it has been a stupendous run. Similarly with Lara Dutta too, he had a good beginning [Andaaz] but the same pairing didn't really work out in 'Aan - Men At Work' where the two hardly had 3 scenes together in an out and out action film.
The two were seen together again in 'Insan' and 'Dosti - Friends Forever' but neither were the two paired opposite each other nor the films were success at the box office.
Now exactly a year after the release of 'Dosti - Friends Forever' [Dec 23, 2005], the two would be seen together in 'Bhagam Bhag', which arrives on Dec 22. The film has a unique plot which is expected to set the stage for a powerhouse comedy, especially with the trio of Akshay, Govinda and Paresh Rawal sharing the screen.
With Priyadarshan at the helm of affairs, it would be interesting to see how Lara holds herself well amidst all the men-power and makes her presence felt, especially after an inconsequential 1 scene role in her last release 'Fanaa'.
