Akshay Kumar and Twinkle Khanna may be one of the most solid couples in Bollywood but their story is anything but bland. When he asked her to marry him a year into their relationship, she declined, telling him she wanted to focus on her career – unless her upcoming movie turned out to be a flop. He explained on a ‘Koffee with Karan’ segment: "Twinkle was very confident of her upcoming release, ‘Mela’, in 2000. She was certain that it would do well and told me that in case the movie fails to create magic at the box office, she would marry me.’’ Luckily for him, the movie did flop and the rest is history.
