In Breakaway, the Indo-Canadian film that Akshay Kumar is co-producing with his best-friend Canada-based entrepreneur Ajay Virmani to launch Virmani's son Vinay, the star will for the first time appear as himself.
Akshay will play Akshay in Breakaway and that too because the debutant Vinay Virmani, who has co-scripted Breakaway, hero-worships Akshay and wrote the role especially for the star.
Says a source close to the project, "Akshay and AJ (that's how Ajay Virmani likes to be known) go back a long way. In fact, AJ has a permanent room in his home for Akshay for whenever the star visits Toronto. Earlier, AJ ghost-produced some of Akshay's films. Now they're openly into joint ventures. Akshay has virtually seen Vinay grow up in front of him. The boy completely idolizes Akshay to the extent of imitating his mannerisms and watching all his films repeatedly."
When Vinay wrote the father-son story in Breakaway, he not only borrowed scenes from his own life with his father-figure Akshay, the boy insisted on creating a cameo for his idol. For the first time, Akshay Kumar will appear as himself on screen.
Confirming this, Anupam Kher who plays Vinay Virmani's father in Breakaway says from Toronto, "Akshay will appear as himself in the film. Breakaway is an emotional father-son story. I accepted the film because I've a very powerful role as a father."
Anupam tried to grow a beard for the part. But finally gave up. "The facial growth was just not sufficient. So Vinay will have to make do with a beardless father." -- Mahi
Thanks guys for the support, unfortunately the fake profile is still active. Have been reading your comments on how to distinguish fake from the real profile...it's simple, the fake profile has an "Add as Friend" option while my comments will always lead back to this fan page. Hope it's all clear now.
Hope ur doing good, it's always humbling to see so much love & support through ur endless comments & questions on my page. Unfortunately, I'm unable to answer them, hence I try making up for it by keeping u guys clued into my life. Though there is someone who has been wrongly answering ur questions, in short, it's a fake profile...would request you to please report him/her and not fall prey.
