Mumbai,(ANI): During a promotional campaign in Pune, Maharashtra,
Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar took part in a bicycle rally and rode
a bicycle to promote his upcoming movie Khatta Meetha.
Akshay reached the venue dressed as 'Sachin Tichkule', who is the
main character in the movie.
The Bollywood actor said that Khatta Meetha is based on
the ups and downs in the life of a common man. "Khatta
Meetha is about life. Life is sometime on its highs and
sometimes on its lows. Like in my life it's sometime up and
sometimes down, sometimes 'khatta' sometimes 'meetha'. It's about a
common man's life," Akshay said. He also said that the film is a
political satire on the municipal and constructors in India, told
through the life of a contractor Sachin Tichkule.
"Corruption in bureaucracy, that is the message and how a man, a
common man who wants to go straight in his life, turns corrupt
because of the corruption," he added. During the event Akshay
highlighted that Khatta Meetha is a sensible film, backed
by a well-structured script that caters to the tastes of the masses
as well as the classes.
Akshay is paired opposite south Indian actress Trisha Krishnan,
who makes her debut in Bollywood with this film. Like many other
films of Bollywood director Priyadarshan, Khatta Meetha is
a remake of his own Malayalam film Vellanakalude Nadu.
Khatta Meetha is scheduled to hit the theater on July
