Success formula: Akshay Kumar and Sikh roles
Akshay Kumar made the audience dance to his tune with his Sardar act in Singh Is Kinng, and the film was the biggest blockbuster of the year; in fact, Vipul Shah has already finished the script of the sequel.
Akshay has played a Sikh once again for his upcoming film, Patiala House which deals with the story of a Punjabi family and a cricketer based in Southhall, London; Akshay plays the lead role of a Sardar who is a cricketer. The idea of portraying Akshay as a Sikh was an afterthought as Akshay’s character in Singh is Kinng was very popular.
Director Nikhil Advani and Akshay are extremely excited about the film, which will be released in February 2011 as the film Action Replay will now have a Diwali release while Tees Maar Khan is scheduled to release in December.
