Akshay Kumar and Saif Ali Khan have known each other for over 25 years, a journey that started with movies like Main Khiladi Tu Anari. Today, both their sons, Aarav and Ibrahim, respectively, are good friends and talk of their debuts also keep surfacing. Even Kareena Kapoor Khan has been a common factor for both. Saif’s wife has featured in numerous films opposite Akshay and are gearing up for another movie, Good Newwz. Among these ventures, one of them was Tashan, where the trio had worked together. Though the movie was a debacle at the box office, what succeeded was ‘Saifeena’s love story, which was at its nascent stage at that time. It has now come to light that Akshay was the first to know about their affair. Akshay quipped that it was because his room was near Saif’s at the time they were shooting. Kareena revealed that Akshay did a ‘good job’ as a friend to keep their 'secret.'

She also credited him for his ‘good job’ in maintaining the secrecy and called him a ‘good friend’ for it. Akshay then joked that he got to know about it because his room was next to Saif’s.
