Mumbai: Like every year, Akshay Kumar is set to feature in four films this year, with the first one 'Jolly LLB 2' set to release on February 10.

The superstar is on a promotion spree for the venture and is making a lot of television appearances for the same. In one of the talk shows, ‘Aap Ki Adalat’, the actor tackled many tricky questions with equally witty answers.

But the most apt response came when the host inquired about his alleged fallout with superstar Priyanka Chopra who he has worked with in five blockbusters and triggered some linkup rumours in the early 2000s.  

He said, “There is nothing like that. I have worked on five films with Priyanka. It's not like I don't want to work with her. Except for Rani Mukerji, I have worked with every heroine. If there is an opportunity, I will surely work with Priyanka Chopra.”

Akshay also rubbished rumours of him parting ways with producer Ekta Kapoor and choreographer Farah Khan saying, “Let us call Priyanka Chopra, Ekta Kapoor and Farah Khan and check if they have any issue with me. That way you will know for sure.”

Now that’s what you call a perfect way to dodge tricky questions!
