Although Akshay Kumar’s Joker has not opened to great box office collections, he needed worry too much if Himesh Reshammiya’s comments are anything to go by. According to the super-hit music director and singer, “Akshay is extraordinary in the title role of Khiladi”. And why shouldn’t he be? With a record of previous box office successes using the ‘Khiladi’ title (Main Khiladi Tu Anari, Khiladiyon Ka Khiladi) and Himesh currently rocking the charts again (Bodyguard, Bol Bachchan), there is no doubt that this will be one knock out combination.
If you didn’t know already Himesh is not only producing Khiladi 786, but has also written the story, composed the music and will be acting alongside Akshay Kumar and Paresh Rawal. A confident Himesh shared “The story is nice and fascinating…the music will be very good and audience will love it!” Further, the film is being directed by debutant Ashish R Mohan, who was the assistant director in Rohit Shetty’s ‘Golmaal’ series, thus giving us all a flavour of what to expect.
Here’s hoping that Khiladi 786 repeats the success of Rowdy Rathod, when it releases on 7th December.
