Patiala House will make Askhay Kumar, the real 'khiladi" as he plays an aspiring cricketer in this film. His character is supposedly based on a real life cricketer Monty Panesar, who became the first Sikh representing England in cricket.
This film also brings Akshay and his real life mom-in-law Dimple Kapadia on one screen as she plays his reel mother in the film. Rishi Kapoor will be seen playing his father, who is very tough with his principles. Patiala House will also see first time pairing of Anushka Sharma and Akshay Kumar and they are expected to rock the screen both being Punjabis in real life.
The film is set in London, where four generations of the Kahlon family live together in a suburban house. Akshay plays the lead character, who had to sacrifice his dream of becoming a cricketer and gets a second chance to fulfill that dream later. Director Nikhil Advani says that Akshay"s character is not inspired by only one person as they did a thorough research on the cricketers of Patiala House.
We hope, the Khiladi of Bollywood, Akshay Kumar starts this year with high score with Patiala House.
