Everyone knows that Akshay Kumar’s Singh is Kinng is the biggest hit of the year 2008. There is a small secret behind the making of this film.
After the film Welcome directed by Anees Bazmi starring Akshay Kumar, Anil Kapoor, Nana Patekar and Katrina Kaif became a huge hit in 2007, a special bond of friendship evolved between Akshay and Bazmi.
Last year, after attending a function in Chandigarh, Akshay Kumar was travelling to Delhi by road. On the way, a lorry was speeding in front of the car. Akshay observed that some slogan was written at the back of the lorry, as is the custom for every road transport luggage carrier.
On closer scrutiny, Akshay observed that the slogan written on the back of the lorry was: “Singh is King”. He immediately rang up Anees Bazmi and told him that this would be a good title. Bazmi said yes and wrote down the story.
The rest, as the saying goes, is history.
