Sometimes the best way to quell rumours is to clarify with visual proof, a tactic that Bollywood stars often revel in.
The latest instance came from John Abraham and Akshay Kumar, who are rumoured to be at odds because of their films Batla House and Mission Mangal releasing on Independence Day. The Desi Boyz decided to take a picture together and share it on Twitter.
In the image, John can be seen lifting Akshay on his back and shoulders, and the two are smiling wide. The picture of the bromance seems to suggest that Akshay enjoys piggybacking his films onto the day John releases his, so there is enough grist to the mill.
“Make some noise for the Desi Boys… Love you always @akshaykumar,” tweeted John.
“Make some noise for the Desi Boyz… together we are always a riot @TheJohnAbraham #BrotherFromAnotherMother,” exclaimed Akshay.
2018’s Independence Day saw both, Akshay’s film Gold and John starrer Satyamev Jayate do very well at the box office. Here’s hoping that the riot at the turnstiles continue even if they are not sharing screen space but will be on different screens.
For now it appears that they do have each other’s back.
