Akshay Kumar, who plays a struggling road construction contractor in Priyadarshan’s satirical comedy Khatta Meetha, is called Sachin Tichkule in the film.
In fact, Sachin Tichkule happens to be a real person who has inspired the superstar a great deal. He used to be Akshay’s neighbour in Bandra, during the latter’s days of struggle in the industry. The actor was so impressed with his Maharashtrian neighbour that he decided to name his character after him.
Khatta Meetha is largely a political satire on the municipal and construction dealings in India, told through Sachin Tichkule’s life. The story highlights the plight of the common man, like Sachin Tichkule, who is grounded and disciplined until he is forced to change his ways to survive the corrupt and convoluted system.
