Raveena Tandon and Akshay Kumar were in a relationship while they were shooting for their movie Khiladiyon Ka Khiladi. Rekha too was a part of the movie, who played Raveena's on-reel elder sister. Rekha reportedly fell for Akshay Kumar while shooting for the movie and got really close to him. Akshay Kumar's then-girlfriend, Raveena Tandon didn't really like Rekha getting this close to him and she reportedly asked her to maintain a distance from boyfriend Akshay Kumar. 

In an interview, she shared that it was Rekha to be blamed here and not Akshay. She said,  “I don't want to say too much on the subject. I don't think Akshay ever had anything to do with Rekha. As a matter of fact, he would run away from her. Akshay tolerated Rekha because of the film. At one point she wanted to get lunch dabbas for him from home. That's when I put my foot down. I felt it was taking things a bit too far. She's a wonderful person, but she should learn where to draw the line.”

Well, that quite cleared that Akshay Kumar didn't have anything for Rekha.
