Treat for Akkians: Akshay Kumar and Priyanka Chopra’s Unreleased song from Barsaat to drop soon, reveals filmmaker Suneel Darshan

It was the last collaboration between Akshay Kumar and Priyanka Chopra and since then they haven't worked together

Actor Akshay Kumar shot certain parts of Barsaat with actress Priyanka Chopra, including a title track too. However, Kumar made an exit after shooting its song. He was soon replaced by Bobby Deol. The film is Suneel Darshan’s directorial which was released in 2005.

Tabloids at that time reported an affair between Sooryavanshi actor and Chopra. Kumar had received a warning from Twinkle Khanna to not work with Chopra.

Filmmaker Darshan had said, “Akshay Kumar went through a personal dilemma. We started shooting with Akshay and Priyanka. We shot a song with them. After that, the film kept getting delayed as Akshay had to sort out his (family) problems. It was a grave domestic issue for Akshay. Otherwise, he’d have never walked out of the film. He couldn’t have let me down after the way I’ve stood by him over the years.”

“The provocation had to be very serious. When a filmmaker invests so much in a film, he’s within his rights to expect loyalty from his actors. But then personal dilemmas have to be sorted out before professional loyalties are considered… I don’t blame Akshay for anything. But yes, firstly he insisted that I sign no actor but him. Then he drops out. Thank God Bobby bailed me out. Someday I’ll edit the song I shot with Akshay in Barsaat and use it somewhere,” Darshan added.

It was the last collaboration between Akshay Kumar and Priyanka Chopra and since then they haven’t worked together. Their unreleased song will be released soon as per Darshan, further reviving its memories.
