What happens when three heavyweights Vipul Shah, Akshay Kumar and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan get together? They give you a retro cool film titled Action Replayy, that is high on style quotient and emotionally rewarding too.
The gorgeous Aishwarya puts it very simply when she says, “It is a fun-genre romantic film.’’ And 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.’’ Without giving away too much, one can safely say that Action Replayy is all about rewinding your life. It is about Kishen and Mala — two bickering senior citizens who “rediscover romance’’ on their 33rd wedding anniversary, when their son gets them into rew mode. Vipul Shah, who had a blast making Action Replayy, says, “Akki and I have an impeccable box office record. “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 goodlooking, 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,’’ adds Vipul.
