Akshay Kumar and Saif Ali Khan had given many hits together in the past so it doesn’t come as a shock to us when Saif spoke in favour of Akshay when probed about the controversy surrounding Akki’s National Award.
In an interview to a leading daily, he had this to say: “There has been uproar about Akshay's win at the National Awards.

I take a little offence when people joke about my National Award win.” Point noted.
