Akshay pushed me into making Speedy Singhs

When it comes to matters of heart, Vinay Virmani – leading man of this weekend’s release SPEEDY SINGHS (BREAKAWAY) – still can’t forget the trust and confidence that Akshay Kumar showed in him right through this two year journey. While he doesn’t forget to acknowledge the contribution made by Akshay in making this film a reality, he reiterates that more than a professional alliance, it is the personal bonding that he shares with the star that he cherishes most.

Frankly, our relationship has never been on a professional level,’ says Vinay, ‘He and my father have been friends for quite some time. Our families are very close and Akshay also has this very long association with Canada; it is akin to his second home. A lot of my growing up has happened with Akshay. He is not only my friend; he is also my big brother. This is what that matters most as he really motivated me to step into making films myself
