Anil Kapoor has bagged a pivotal role in Akshay Kumar’s ‘Khiladi 786’.
The actor, whose the face of Indian cinema in Hollywood, received acclaim for his performance in the Academy award winning film Slumdog Millionaire. Back home, he appeared in films like Yuvraaj and No Problem. Unfortunately, both films didn’t do too well at the box-office. Since then, Anil has been selective about choosing scripts and only signed ‘Khiladi 786’ after his character was redefined.
He also has Tezz, the sequel to Race and Shootout at Wadala lined up for release this year.
With Khiladi 786, Akshay returns to the Khiladi series after 12 years. This time he will be co-producing it with Himesh Reshammiya, who is also a part of the starcast along with Ileana D’Cruz and Paresh Rawal.
This Diwali, Khiladi 786 is set for a mega-clash with Shahrukh Khan’s untitled film with Yash Chopra and Ajay Devgan’s Son of Sardar.
