New Retro Look of Akshay & Ash in Action Replay

When two heavyweight actors, Akshay Kumar and Aishwarya Rai will join-in, some unique thing will happen; that the same thing happened in Vipul Shah’s Action Replayy. Both the actors have totally different look in the film.

As the film is all about rewinding the love life and rediscovering of love life on the 33rd wedding anniversary when Kishen and Mala’s son get them into rewind mod. Then it was bit obvious that actors should carry different look in the movie.

The gorgeous Aishwarya puts it very simply when she says, “It is a fun-genre romantic film.’’

While her good-looking co-star, the handsome Akshay adds,

“It’s a very special film for me for many reasons. This is my tribute to the 70s that was the greatest retro era. I was kicked with the idea because I’m entering the time in cinema where my father-in-law (Rajesh Khanna) was a superstar. It is my fifth film with Vipul and definitely another one to remember. Ash and I had a brief romantic interlude in Raj Kumar Santoshi’s Khakee, but Action Replayy is our first romantic comedy together. Believe me, I was blushing through the making and there’s a lot I wish to tell my audience about. But Vipul wants me to keep things under wraps for the moment.’’

Vipul Shah, who had a blast making Action Replayy, says, “Akki and I have an impeccable box office record. We’ve enjoyed success with Ankhein, Waqt — The Race Against Time, Namastey London and Singh is Kinng. Action Replayy is a film where the two of us return after a gap of almost three years. And believe me, it is a great way to return.’’

On casting Aish and Akshay together, Vipul says,

“For me it was an exciting experience because I could bring together Aishwarya and Akshay, a pair I had been wanting to cast for sometime now. They’re both good-looking, super-talented and what’s more, they’re fashion icons as well. Akki has made an amazing screen pair with some of the existing girls but believe me, he and Ash are extra special.”
