Deepika is the new Katrina in AK's (reel) life
Akshay Kumar is probably the only actor is B-Town who gives as much importance to the script of the film, as he does to his leading lady.
A lot of thought goes into his female co-stars. No wonder he has had hit jodis with many actresses like Shilpa Shetty, Raveena Tandon and Priyanka Chopra.
AK believes in changing his leading ladies after a point. Even though the Akki-Katrina jodi is the hottest right now, the actor is thinking ahead and is replacing her with a younger, fresher face like Deepika Padukone. Akki and Kat will be seen later this year in De Dhana Dhan, their last film together on paper.
However Deepika and AK will be seen again in 2009 (after Chandni Chowk To China) in Sajid Khan's Houseful. And the pair is also in talks for another film for a big production house. It might be Come On Pappu directed by David Dhawan's son Rohit Dhawan.
