Yes, Akshaye Khanna's role in Tees Maar Khan is said to be a replica of Shahrukh's real life. In the film, Akshaye goes to London often for terrible backache treatment. He also talks about showing off his six-packs and going topless in film.
As if that's not enough, he makes an international filmmaker wait for six hours and turned his offer down in the end. The film went on to win Oscars, leaving him with remorse. It may be recalled that Shahrukh turned down Danny Boyle's film Slumdog Millionaire, which won stole the show at the Oscars a few years ago.
Tees Maar Khan starring Akshay Kumar, Katrina Kaif and Akshaye Khanna is scheduled for release on Christmas day, December 24.
