Akshay Kumar’s Breakaway premieres at TIFF
Akshay Kumar‘s Indo-Canadian production Breakaway has been premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival and received cheer from the audience for the film’s deliberately racy, sunny-side-up look and feel, capturing the spirit of Punjab.
The film, which was scripted by Vinay Virmani, documents the revolt of first generation Canadian-Indian youth from their immigrant families in a sport-driven story. The group of Sikh lads is led by Rajveer Singh (Vinay Virmani), whose ambition is to excel in Canada’s leading sport, ice hockey. His father (Anupam Kher) disapproves strongly, even more so when the sport leads Rajveer to become enamoured by a Canadian girl. The film opens doors to a cultural exchange between Canada and India.
The Hindi version of the film Speedy Singh releases in November.
