The duo first shared screen space in the 1992 film 'Deedar'. Then they went on to work together in the 1990s in movies like 'Dil Ki Baazi', 'Waqt Hamara Hai' and 'Aflatoon'.

Most recently, they acted in 'Special 26' in 2013. And now, they will be seen in 'The Shaukeens'.

"It is not tough to shoot with Anupam. We have done a lot of films together. 'Deedar' was the first one.  In the middle, we had stopped acting together, but now again we are doing lots of films. I have fun working with him," he told reporters here on Friday.

"There aren't many scenes with him in 'The Shaukeens', but yes, I worked with him for three-four days," added Akshay, who plays an alcoholic superstar in the film.

Explaining about his character, Akshay said it is very 'colourful'."I play an alcoholic superstar. My role is very colourful and someone who gets angry very soon. It's different from what I've played in the past," he said.
