It’s SHOCKING that close friends Akshay Kumar and Neeraj Pandey have apparently had a big argument, two days back. has exclusively learnt that Akshay and Neeraj had a showdown over a call.

Neeraj Pandey is currently out of Mumbai as he is shooting for his next, Aiyaary, with Sidharth Malhotra. Meanwhile, Akshay Kumar is in London. The two spoke over the phone to discuss an issue related to their next release, Toilet: Ek Prem Katha, which led to the heated argument.

Well, we hear that Neeraj Pandey had promised to give the overseas and domestic distribution rights of Toilet: Ek Prem Katha to Viacom 18 and on the other hand, Akshay Kumar was in talks with Reliance Entertainment for the same and this lead to a major argument between the two.

Either of them refused to bow down and the call ended on a stalemate.

The two have worked together in hits like Special 26 (2013), Baby (2015), Rustom (2016), Naam Shabana (2017) and the latest one being Toilet: Ek Prem Katha. The makers released the trailer of the film recently and it received a positive response.

Toilet: Ek Prem Katha is set in rural India and the trailer introduces us to Akshay Kumar’s character, a man who will do anything to find him a wife, even marry a buffalo to ward off the ill effects of his kundli.

Bhumi is a feisty small town girl and they fall in love and get married. But soon she realises that her husband’s home does not have a toilet. Their love story hits a roadblock when Bhumi refuses to perform her morning ablutions in the open and demands a toilet. What follows is a revolution of sorts with Akshay and Bhumi leading it.

Coming back to the showdown, we sent out a text message to Neeraj Pandey about it but he chose to not respond. Here’s hoping that the two resolve their issues soon and get back to being buddies again.
