Akshay Kumar recently kicked off the shooting of 'Shaukeen' with Lisa Haydon. The film is a remake of a yesteryear flick by the same name. The original film had Mithun Chakraborty playing a common man. But according to trade buzz, a twist has been given to the film's script to charm modern day audiences. Akki will now portray the role of a superstar. The actor will be essaying the role of a big time Bollywood hunk.
'Shaukeen' previously had Nargis Fakhri playing the lead role, but the actress opted out of the project to concentrate on international commitments. Currently the team of 'Shaukeen' is still shooting indoors, and will leave for Mauritius this month.
