Akshay Kumar and Preity Zinta have always been a hit couple whenever they performed together. The duo worked on films like Jaan-e-man and Sangharsh. As Tanuja Chandra's 1999 hit film Sangharsh completed 19 years on Monday, lead actors Akshay Kumar and Preity Zinta turned nostalgic and recounted their memories.
Preity tweeted: "After all these years, this film remains closest to my heart. If I was not an actor, I would probably be Reet Oberoi from 'Sangharsh'. Thank you to the Bhatts and Tanuja for this opportunity. Thank you Akshay Kumar and Ashutosh Rana for making it so special. 19 years Of 'Sangharsh'."

Also starring actor Ashutosh Rana as a religious fanatic who believes in the sacrifice of children to gain immortality, "Sangharsh" is counted among India's popular pyschological thriller films that dealt with the issues of child abductions and murders. It featured Alia Bhatt as a child actor.
On the work front, Preity Zinta is returning to the big screen after a long break with "Bhaiaji Superhit", while Akshay Kumar will be next seen in "Housefull 4" and "Kesari". His recent release Gold managed to impress the critics and fans alike. Gold earned big numbers at the box office even when it had tough competition from John Abraham’s Satyameva Jayate.
