Shikashanachya Aaicha Gho was directed by Mahesh Manjrekar himself in Marathi. It is an anti-education movie, which was recently made in Tamil and Telugu as Dhoni. The story is about an aspiring kid, who wishes to make his career as a cricketer but against his father's wish.
It is said that Mahesh Manjrekar's first choice was his friend Salman Khan. But as the actor is busy with other projects, the filmmaker decided to go with Akshay Kumar. The movie is reportedly made on Akki's home banner and Kannada actress Nidhi Subbaiah is playing one of the female leads in the movie.
