Round 1

Anil attacks Akshay
In an interview to a film magazine, Anil Kapoor was asked why he wasn’t making films as a producer. The actor apparently replied that he was better off being an actor  because he hates to run after anyone (meaning other actors?) He then went on to say, “Akshay Kumar had asked me why I wasn’t asking him to work with me. I told him, “Dekh bhai, main kisika chamcha nahi hoon. I need the same kind of passion in an actor. If we have that, we’ll work together. I can’t beg and please, neither will I lick an actor’s feet to cast him.”

Round 2 Akshay hits back
A tabloid picked up this story and highlighted as Anil taking potshots at Akshay. While they weren’t able to reach the two actors, they carried some quotes from a ‘close friend of Akshay’ who said, “That Anil was perhaps taking potshots at Khiladi Kumar because he’d been sidelined in recent films like Tezz with Ajay Devgn, and Race 2 with Saif Ali Khan.”

When Anil read the tabloid in the morning, he felt that his quotes had been used to misrepresent him, and he called Akshay. He explained that he hadn’t made any digs at him and he was embarrassed that there had been an attempt to create a misunderstanding between them, when there was none. Following this, Anil Landed up on the set of Boss, where Akki was shooting and they cleared the air.’
