Akshay and Raveena met for the first time in 1994, on the sets of their film, Mohra. Soon, their friendship started brewing into love. As per multiple reports, they were also on the verge of getting married to each other when they allegedly broke up. In a 1999 interview with Stardust, Raveena cleared the air on her engagement with Akshay. She also revealed why the actor kept shut about the same back then. She mentioned that Akshay was a rising star with a huge female fan following. Thus, he was scared to lose out on his female fans, leading to a downfall in his Bollywood career. Thus, he remained tight-lipped about the same.
