Akshay Kumar and word 'Khiladi' have become synonymous with each other over the years. Akshay donned this 'Khiladi' image for the very first time in the year 1992 when he worked in Abbas Mustan's suspense thriller 'Khiladi' and rest as the film critics say is history.
The actor would be revisiting his Khiladi persona through 'Khiladi 786' after around 12 years. Akshay's last Khiladi venture was 'Khiladi 420', in which Akshay performed double role of twin brothers.
The movie saw its release in the year 2000 but unlike several other Khiladi movies it turned out to be a bummer at the Box-Office.
Akshay has admitted several times earlier that Khiladi movies are close to his heart as they had consequential impact on his career.
"It (Khiladi) is a title for me. Wherever I go people call me Khiladi. I have always been referred to as Khiladi ," Akki revealed.
"It has been 12 years that I haven't done that kind of a film.I think the role it was written for me... I am happy to be doing action films again," added Akshay.
'Khiladi 786' is expected to be an action packed flick full of kick ass action. The film would be produced by Akshay's home production, Hari Om Entertainment in association with Eros International.
Khiladi Cast and Crew
The film would be directed by Ashish R Mohan, who has been Rohit Shetty's protégé since 'Golmaal' days. Ashish R Mohan has been working as assistant director on 'Golmaal' franchise since the first installment of the flick.
'Khiladi 786' would be bringing the duo of Akki and Paresh back as well. They haven't worked together since a very long time and would try to recreate the magic once again through this Khiladi movie.
Apart from that the movie would also be starring Himesh Reshammiya and Ileana D'Cruz.
With this movie Akshay would be trying to find his way back into the action films, which apparently haven't done anything remarkable for the action star recently.
