Tandon also said Akshay was never attracted to Rekha and that the latter would try various things to impress him. Raveena had claimed that Akshay used to “tolerate” Rekha. “I don’t think Akshay ever had anything to do with Rekha. As a matter of fact, he would run away from her. Akshay tolerated Rekha because of the film. At one point she wanted to get lunch dabbas for him from home. That’s when I put my foot down. I felt it was taking things a bit too far,” Raveena was quoted saying in an old interview with Rediff.
