    Akshay Kumar and Chitrangada Singh were paired up for the first time in the 2011 Rohit Desai film 'Desi Boyz.' When asked at an event about starring alongside a new face in nearly every film, Akshay Kumar said, "What inspires on to work with new faces is change. For a lengthy career it's important to keep the mind of the audiences anticipating something fresh. When I work with a new actress, the audience has no clue how my connection with her in the film will be like."
