Catapulting the hype around Singh Is Kinng to a new level, Akshay Kumar landed in Vancouver to promote his upcoming release.
Upon landing in Vancouver, he immediately boarded a chopper that took him to the Ground for a concert. As his limo rolled into the venue, the cheering fans went ballistic.
Known for its enormous Sikh community, Vancouver had its natives flocking in thousands to see Kumar on stage, as he enthralled visitors for half an hour with a live interaction and dance moves on the title track of Singh Is Kinng, not once but twice, due to public demand.
"Who is behind a successful Sardar?," he asked the crowd. The women roared with delight when he beamed, "His Sardarni!"
After the event Akshay addressed a press conference by Studio 18 US, where he revealed, "Singh Is Kinng is my first production. It means the world to me because my father's name is attached. It is simple, honest and positive; which are the values propounded by my father."
Commenting on how the film and its title came about, he said, "When I read the phrase Singh Is King on a truck-back in Jaipur, I told my partner (Vipul Shah) that we had to make a film with this title. That was the starting point. We had no cast, no story, no director, but everything fell in place thereafter."
