Actress Bhumi Pednekar, who is all set to share screen space with Akshay Kumar once again after 'Toilet: Ek Prem Katha' in the upcoming film 'Raksha Bandhan', says her friendship with the National Award-winning star has become thicker and that he has been a huge part of her career.
In a chat with IANS, Bhumi talked about how her bond with Akshay has evolved since 2017.
She said: "I think my friendship has only become thicker with him. He is someone I hold in a very high regard. He's been a huge part of my career and we've done some very successful things together. He is somebody who I learnt a lot from and only have love and respect for him."

Bhumi remained tight-lipped about 'Raksha Bandhan', which is directed by Aanand L. Rai.
"I unfortunately can't (say). As a principle, I don't talk about any of my films till the makers do but all I can say is it's been a very heart-warming process for me to work with two people I love so much," she said.
The 32-year-old, who is also an environmentalist, heaped praises on the director.
