I took me 3-4 months to sign Special 26: Akshay Kumar

Akshay Kumar says it took him almost four months to say yes to “Special 26″ because initially he did not understand the script, which carries an important message too.

“It took me around three-four months. The first time I read the script, I didn’t understand. Sometimes you don’t understand a script till somebody narrates it to you. That was the only thing,” the 45-year-old superstar said here in an interview.

Akshay said “Special 26″ is based on a real-life incident that happened in the 1980s.

“My role is of a very simple man and how his life is shaken up. What happens to a common man and to what limit can he go? The film is based on that and it is based on a real story, this happened in 1986-87,” he said.

Directed by Neeraj Pandey, “Special Chabbis” also stars Manoj Bajpayee, Anupam Kher, Jimmy Shergill and Kajal Aggarwal and is slated for a Feb 8 release.

The film is about a group of 26 men who rob rich businessmen and industrialists by posing as CBI and income tax officials.

Akshay says the film carries a small message for the audiences.

“Through this film, we want to tell everyone to be very careful and alert. There are huge posters of bogus police at Juhu. When you hire a housemaid or servant, you should know about them to avoid being conned or being taken for a ride. This is the small moral of the story,” Akshay said.

It took around three-four months to sign
it will run for 3-4 months

but with the content, it will be a blockbuster

SPECIAL 26 will get hugely positive reviews, but it won’t collect much at the box office.

For the film directed by a highly talented neeraj pandey, he needed 3 to 4 months.?
If it was prabhudeva’s movie then he would have signed without hesitating it seems.:)

guys stop building expectations of 100 cr around, this is a wom film, and not necessarily a film to compete for huge grosser. I hope akki is applauded for his performance and film does well

This is one of the best performances of Akshaykumar. I dont have any doubt saying that he is the most versatile HERO in our industry.
