Akshay Kumar is among the few Bollywood stars who ruled the 90s and continue to be among the best actors in the Hindi film industry. He still plays the lead actor opposite actresses much younger than him and was last seen opposite Bhumi Pednekar in Raksha Bandhan.

Akshay and Sridevi worked together in Pankaj Parashar’s Meri Biwi Ka Jawaab Nahin. The film’s release was delayed for more than a decade, before finally seeing the light of day in 2004. On the occasion of its anniversary, here’s a look at the mahurat shot of the film which had Akshay, in a striped tee-shirt and a high waisted pants and glasses, trying to calm the energetic Sridevi who continues to dance to Hamra Sajan Sang Tha Waada as the mahurat of the film. She looks pretty in a pink saree and flowers in her bun. The late actor Laxmikant Berde, who played Inspector Prakash in the film, is also seen in the video shared on Reddit.

Akshay played a cop named Inspector Ajay Khanna while Sridevi played his beautiful village wife, Durga in Meri Biwi Ka Jawaab Nahin. The final cut of the song Hamra Sajan Sang Tha Waada showed a party scene. Akshay wore a suit while Sridevi wore the same pink saree. It was sung by Alka Yagnik with music by Laxmikant-Pyarelal.

Meri Biwi Ka Jawaab Nahin also played Gulshan Grover, Anupam Kher, Johnny Lever, Kiran Kumar and Neena Gupta. While appearing on Koffee With Karan in 2016, Akshay said that the film was released without a climax which could not be shot before the film was released without informing him. He said: “She (Sridevi) and I hold hands and say we’re going to get revenge in the movie. But we didn’t shoot the revenge part. Text on the screen says ‘un dono ne milke phir badla liya (They get revenge later), and the movie ends.”
