The Shaukeens is being helmed by Abhishek Sharma of Tere Bin Laden fame. The original film revolved around three old men Ashok Kumar, Utpal Dutt and A.K. Hangal; who try to impress a young dancer, played by Rati Agnihotri.
While Annu Kapoor, Paresh Rawal and Anupam Kher will be reprising the roles of the three old men, Akshay Kumar plays the dancer’s boyfriend (a role essayed by Mithun Chakravorty in the original).
Coming to its release date, well The Shaukeens is set to clash with Ajay Devgn starrer Action Jackson. While the film’s release was earlier changed from June to November to avoid clash with Holiday: A Soldier Is Never Off Duty, well the clashing ghost continues to haunt them.
Action Jackson directed by Prabhu Deva will now clash with Akshay Kumar starrer The Shaukeens on November 07, 2014.
Here’s wishing both Akshay Kumar and Ajay Devgn all the best at the Box Office.
