Akshay Kumar plays a real life version of himself in The Shaukeens with a surprising twist. In his most special appearance till date, Akshay can be seen playing himself, but with a twist - an alcoholic superstar.
This is perhaps the first unique on-screen occurrence of a star ridiculing his real life persona. The Khiladi star, who is known to criticize film awards in reality, plays a complete opposite version of himself in the film!
Director Abhishek Sharma reveals, "In the film, Akshay desperately wants to win the National Award. There is this huge conflict between him and his business manager (Cyrus Broacha), who wants him to break box-office records instead. But Akshay is ready to do anything to bag the most respected award in the country."
This interesting spin to the character goes on to form the highlight of the movie produced by Murad Khetani and Ashwin Varde. Sharma further reveals that the manner in which the superstar achieves his goal goes on to become a crucial part of the films plot. "In the middle of all this mad conflict are a greedy secretary, an eccentric director and a commercial filmmaker - all driving Akshay crazy, who's wasted, anyway! It is madness like never seen before," adds Abhishek.
The Shaukeens is a remake of 1982 comedy movie Shaukeen directed by Basu Chatterjee. It stars Anupam Kher, Annu Kapoor, Piyush Mishra and Lisa Haydon along with Akshay Kumar in his most special appearance.
Produced by Cine1 Studios, Cape Of Good Films & Ashwin Varde Productions and directed by Abhishek Sharma, the film is set to release on November 7, 2014.
