Vipul Explains Reason Behind Double Y in Action Replayy

Have anyone noticed that Akshay & Aishwarya Action Replayy has double Y in its spelling? The filmmaker, Vipul Shah explains that why he has used double Y in his flick. Vipul gives numerological reasons behind it. The director stated,

“It’s because of numerology that we have altered the spelling of the film. We all are superstitious, so we have kept the name according to numerology.”

Directed by Shah, the movie stars Akshay Kumar, Aishwarya Rai, Neha Dhupia, Randhir Kapoor and Rajpal Yadav, among others.

Based on a 1994 Gujarati play of the same name, it is a time-travel comedy capturing Mumbai in the 1970s. Describing the story of the flick, Vipul said,

“The film is based on a play that I did in 1994. Nothing major has changed except that we have adapted the script for cinema. That show was hugely successful so I wanted to bring it to this medium. The role that I played in the play is being played by Rannvijay.”

Explaining why he chosen retro look movie, the filmmaker said,

Its true that few others films this year have also shown touches of the 1970s, but it’s just a coincidence that my film is releasing in the same time. There was no intention of copying something popular. But we’ve seen that retro has the best connect with the audience. That was the era that the youth connects to because it was colourful, the music was great, 70s created a revolution in style.”
