Director Anees Bazmi gave a super hit comedy film Welcome with Akshay Kumar in 2007. The same successful combination is now coming out with Singh is Kinng, which is widely expected to tumble the 2008 box office records.
The title became quite a favourite with those who sent thousands of SMS messages using the title when the PM and UPA won the trust vote in the parliament.
The story of Singh is Kinng deals with the good intentioned antics of Happy Singh (Akshay Kumar) living in a village in Punjab. He wants everybody to be happy in the village and embarks on a mission to do good things for others. But by quirk of fate, every action he undertakes comically becomes a disaster for others causing a terrible embarrassment all around.
The exasperated villagers plan a long trip abroad for Happy Singh, only to get rid of him for sometime. He lands in Australia, where Lakhan Singh alias Lucky (Sonu Sood), known also as King, operates a mafia den with his henchmen played by Javed Jaffrey, Neha Dhupia, Manoj Pahwa, Yashpal Sharma, Kamal Chopra and Sudhanshu Pande.
Happy Singh has a chance meeting with Sonia (Katrina Kaif) and promptly falls in love with her. Meanwhile, rivals raid Lucky’s establishment and our hero saves his life. However Lucky is bed-ridden with paralysis.
Therefore, Happy Singh is forced to take the place of Lucky as King. From then onwards, a series of hilarious interludes take place, finally ending on a happy note through a conspiracy of circumstances.
The film had been shot in India, Australia, Egypt and the US. The film is a romantic, action packed hilarious entertainment. It has Snoop Dogg doing a special number.
The film is due for world wide release on 08-08-08.
