Bollywood celebrities are leaving no stone unturned to promote their films even if that means hobnobbing with their enemy or shake-a-leg their exes.

That's exactly what actor Akshay Kumar is planning to do. He is all set to promote his upcoming movie 'Special 26' on Indian dance reality show 'Nach Baliye 5' judged by none other than his ex-girlfriend Shilpa Shetty.

Hold your thoughts before they run riot because we all know exes can be friends; ask a certain Deepika Padukone, Ranbir Kapoor or Katrina Kaif, Salman Khan.

And this won't be the first time that the ex-lovers will come face to face. The duo came together during 'Fear Factor’s' promotion on an episode of Big Boss which was anchored by Shilpa Shetty.

Post that Shilpa Shetty expressed her desire to cast him for a film produced by her production house. Reacting to it he said he wouldn’t mind working with Shilpa Shetty again provided a good script came their way.

Actor Akshay Kumar believes in letting bygones be bygones. His movie 'Kambakkht Ishq' brought Akshay and another ex-flame Pooja Batra together. It is believed that Pooja Batra helped 'Kambakkht Ishq' filmmaker Sabbir Khan to get in touch with Hollywood casting agents. That’s how the casting of international actors like Sylvester Stallone, Brandon Routh and Denise Richards came about. It was surprising to see Pooja Batra mingling with Akshay Kumar and wife Twinkle Khanna at 'Kambakkht Ishq’s' success party.

Coming back to Shilpa - Akshay face-off, the exes have faced each other on several occasions and have been their cordial best.

Akshay Kumar also expressed happiness when last year Shilpa Shetty gave birth to a baby boy Viaan.

It will be fun to see Akshay and Shilpa share the dance floor (if they at all) as both have an undisputable reputation of a great dancer.

Akshay had reportedly dated several of his colleagues, such as Pooja Batra, Raveena Tandon and Priyanka Chopra.

Post his break-up with Raveena Tandon, he reportedly had a torrid affair with Shilpa, but things went sour between the two and they broke up.

After being engaged twice to actress Twinkle Khanna, the daughter of actors Rajesh Khanna and Dimple Kapadia, he married her on January 17, 2001. Their son named Aarav was born in September 2002. Wife Twinkle Khanna gave birth to their second child, Nitara, on September 25, 2012.

Shilpa tied the knot with London-based businessman Raj Kundra in 2009 and gave birth to her first child, Viaan Raj Kundra on 21 May 2012.


Congratulations! It's a boy for Priyanka and Vivek Oberoi
