Mumbai, Feb. 27 -- They first worked together in Mujhse Shaadi Karogi (2004). Later, Akshay Kumar and Salman Khan featured the song 'Wallah re wallah' in Tees Maar Khan (2011). Now, very soon, both actors will be seen again in Akshay's latest home production.
Interestingly, we have come to know that Akshay is going all out - by doing a rare double shift - to shoot a song today (February 27).
"Akshay always stays away from doing double shifts, but he will be making an exception this time. In the first half of the day (9 am-2 pm), he will be in Pune shooting for his next release, Gabbar. He will then immediately leave for Mumbai to film the song (for his own production), from 4 pm to 8 pm, with Salman at Mehboob Studio, Bandra. To save the travel time, he has also hired a chopper. Since he wants to reach the venue on time, he won't be stopping by at his Juhu home," says an insider.
Apparently, both actors wanted to finish the shoot of the song as soon as possible.
"Salman has just wrapped up a schedule of Kick. And since he is free for a few days, he gave his time for the song today. Besides, Akshay's home production is getting close to the release date too, so he wanted to finish the song at the earliest. Since the actors are known to be good friends, Akshay also didn't want to waste Salman's time. In fact, he has also rejigged the shooting schedule of his next for the same," adds the insider.
After wrapping up this shoot, Akshay will go back to Pune to finish the schedule there. Despite repeated attempts, both Salman and Akshay remained unavailable for comment.
