In one of the exclusive interviews with ETimes TV Rupali spoke about her bond with Akshay Kumar. Anupamaa actress said in a press statement “Akshay is family to us. My father signed him on in his early days, and that’s how we came to know him. When we met him we were pleasantly surprised, and I remember my father saying that this person is made for stardom. Akshay is so punctual, hard-working and such a down-to-earth person. When we used to go outdoors for Papa’s films, I remember Akshay used to wake up early in the morning at 4 am and workout. My father is very proud of him, and always fond of him. So, because of my father Akshay Kumar became very close to me, and I started tying ‘Rakhi’ to him. The friendship that had been lost for almost 30 years has now been rekindled due to ‘Ravivaar with Star Parivaar.”
