The action in Karan Malhotra’s upcoming film ‘Brothers’ starring Akshay Kumar and Sidharth Malhotra in the lead, is as real as it can get. In fact, Akshay, who has done some incredible action scenes in some of his older movies, insisted on real punches for the film.
“Karan (Malhotra) believes in very authentic action. The violence in his first film Agneepath (2012) was dark and brutal. But Akshay wanted to take the violence to the next level in Brothers. None of the boxing scenes in the film are faked. Akshay insisted on real punches. He wanted Brothers to be the first authentic boxing film of India. In Brothers the action comes closer to the real thing than any other Hindi film.”
With less than 24 hours to go for the trailer of Brothers, the excitement is peaking for one of the biggest films of 2015 – releasing during a period that is best for business outside the three major festivals for the industry.
