The motion poster of the upcoming comedy 'The Shaukeens' was recently tweeted by Akshay Kumar, who supposedly plays a supporting role and is also the producer of the movie. The movie is a remake of the 1982 Basu Chatterjee classic 'Shaukeen' which had Ashok Kumar, Utpal Dutt and A.K. Hangal playing the role of naughty senior citizens out to get the attention of the young and beautiful Rati Agnihotri. The movie also starred Mithun Chakraborty in a cameo.
'The Shaukeens' has Anupam Kher, Annu Kapoor and Piyush Mishra essaying the senior citizens' role with model turned actor Lisa Haydon as their object of attention. This is the first starring role for Haydon, who was last seen in the hit Kangana Ranaut-starrer 'Queen' in a supporting role. We have one poster which features Akshay Kumar holding a frame showing the the remaining four members of the cast in a beach-like setting.
The second poster doesn't feature Akshay and has the three senior citizens drooling over a sultry Lisa in a blue bikini top and denim shorts. We get that Akshay will be essaying the role essayed by Mithun Chakraborty in the original, though; there will be some difference in the remake. There are going to be slight changes to the new film keeping in mind today's day and age. Rati Agnihotri will also be making an appearance in the movie.
'The Shaukeens' is directed by Abhishek Sharma and is set to release on November 7, 2014. Also, check out the motion poster of the movie below:
