Incidentally, Akki flaunts a look that is quintessentially from the ’80s.
A source from the unit says, “The film is about one of the most talked about heists of the 1980s in Zaveri Bazaar. Akshay plays a con man while Manoj Bajpayee and Jimmy Sheirgill play cops. He wanted a specific look in the film and a lot of research was done.
He wanted to look like the actors, a la Rajesh Khanna, from the ’80s who essayed gangsters in their films. His character’s mannerisms and attire are inspired from that era.” The promo of the film will be launched today with Salman Khan’s sequel of Dabangg.
