Back in 2019, when the madness around Avengers: Endgame was at its peak, Akshay Kumar had taken to social media to share a fun fashion faceoff with the birthday boy Robert Downey Jr. For the unversed, Avengers: Endgame had released on 26 April, 2019 and on 27 April, Akshay had shared a photo collage of himself and RDJ.
In the photo, Akshay and RDJ were seen sporting similar Givenchy tie and both the actors as always looked dapper. Sharing the picture, Akshay told his fans to share their thoughts on his style and also professed his love for Endgame.

During the cross-country promotions of Avengers: Endgame, RDJ had a virtual fan event with fans in India and had said, "You guys are just amazing fans. I can't wait. I cannot believe I haven't been to India. I'm coming there so damn soon."
Even though he breathes Hollywood, RDJ is a film buff and once hailed the 'diversity and vibrancy' of Bollywood films. In an old interview to DNA, RDJ had said, "Bollywood films are fantastic. The kind of diversity and vibrancy they bring to the screen is phenomenal!”
Adding that he would love to do one. "I love musicals and Bollywood films are about catchy and vibrant dance numbers which I believe is the prime USP. I would love to do one (Bollywood film) since I could get to shake my leg in one of those catchy dance numbers."
