Actor Akshay Kumar, who is back to entertain the masses in his Rowdy avatar with ‘Gabbar Is Back’, said at the film’s first trailer launch that his movie is not a sequel to the cult classic ‘Sholay’.
"This Gabbar is different… that Gabbar was the villain and this Gabbar is the hero. This film has nothing to do with that film. This film is not ‘Sholay' part 2. Both the characters are different," proclaimed Akshay.
‘Gabbar’, which is a remake of 2002 Tamil film ‘Ramanaa’, will show Akshay as a vigilante who will take up the cause of eradicating corruption from the system.
The film stars actress Shruti Haasan in the lead, who said at the event that our Khiladi Kumar is one of her favourite co-actor. “My role is important and very different in this film and it was great working with Akshay and he is one of my favourite co-stars,” admitted Shruti.
Directed by Krish and produced by Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Viacom 18 Motion Pictures, ‘Gabbar Is Back’ is all set to release on May 1, 2015.
