It would have been my honour to work with Aishwarya and Rakeysh sir. Yes, I had auditioned for the film and even got shortlisted but unfortunately I wasn't the one who was finalized for the role and these things happen. I would have loved to be the one to receive that final call from the producers but maybe next time."

Akshay will be soon seen in Akshat Verma's Kaalakaandi, where he plays the role of Saif Ali Khan's brother.
