Bollywood megastars, Akshay Kumar and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s latest hit film, Action Replayy, has been officially recognised by the Oscars Library – the screenplay of the film, directed by Vipul Shah, has been invited by the Library of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences to be preserved as a permanent script in its archive. The script will be used in the teachings of future generations of Film Studies students.
Bollywood Superstar, Akshay, will be celebrating the fourth of his films being entered into the prestigious Library, with previous entries being the Box Office smash hit Namastey London (also directed by Vipul Shah), De Dana Dan and Khatta Meetha.
Action Replayy is a romantic-comedy set in the sassy 70’s, revolving around Akshay Kumar and his on-screen wife, played by Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. Their son, newcomer Aditya Roy Kapur, attempts to revive their deadpan marriage by travelling back in time to the 70’s. His first task is to convert his father from a short-sighted nerd with a nervous disposition into a handsome, bouncy-haired stud; and his mother from a feisty tomboy to the epitome of feminine grace. His next task is to achieve the impossible – make them fall in love with each other and persuade their feuding parents to agree to their marriage!
Action Replayy is in cinemas across UK and worldwide now.
