Rumours, gossip and scandals have been an indispensable part of Bollywood since time immemorial. Every now and then, celebrities have made headlines for their controversies and unconventional love lives. One such gossip from Hindi cinema dates back to the 90s era, and it involves Sunny Deol and Akshay Kumar. Back in those days, both actors were leading the charts at the box office, and their rivalry raised many eyebrows.
For the unversed, Akshay Kumar cheated on Raveena Tandon with Shilpa Shetty, and when Sunny Deol came to know about this, he got extremely furious. In 1997, the Gadar actor was shooting with Raveena Tandon for their film, Ziddi, and the duo developed a friendly bond. During the shoot of the film, Raveena was not keeping well as she was mentally disturbed while dealing with a heartbreak.
Talking about Khiladi Kumar aka Akshay Kumar, he did not have a good reputation back then and was well-known for his casanova image. During that time, he was linked to many actresses, including Raveena Tandon, Ayesha Zulka, and Shilpa Shetty, and his love life was the talk of the town. However, Akshay had to deal with an infuriated Sunny Deol, who blasted him for breaking the heart of the gorgeous diva, Raveena.
Akshay Kumar's love affair with Raveena Tandon is known to everyone. And back then, the duo reportedly got engaged and was on the verge of getting married. However, one day, Akshay dumped Raveena for Shilpa Shetty, leaving the Mohra actress heartbroken. Raveena, who previously had a break-up with Ajay Devgn, could not deal with another heartbreak. As a result, she was suffering, and everyone on the set of her film, Ziddi, including her co-star, Sunny Deol could see it.
When Sunny confronted Raveena about her misery and asked her why she always kept crying on the set, she couldn't hold her emotions. Raveena trusted Sunny and shared the details of her ugly breakup with Akshay. However, Sunny wasn't pleased with the details, and he later confronted Akshay Kumar over the same. Moreover, if rumours are to be believed, Sunny and Raveena also had a fling going, and he tried to become her saviour by bashing Akshay. After Sunny blasted Akshay for cheating on Raveena and ill-treating her, they had a severe fallout.
For the unversed, Sunny and Akshay's fight could be solved years later after the latter got married to Dimple Kapadia‘s daughter, Twinkle Khanna. If reports are to be believed, Dimple and Sunny are in an alleged relationship with each other and share a very close bond. Time and again, the duo hits headlines for their dating rumours, but they never pay heed to it.
Meanwhile, Raveena Tandon is now happily married to Anil Thadani and Shilpa Shetty tied the knot with Raj Kundra.
