The trailer of The Shaukeens pretty much reveals the entire story of the film and one can clearly see that its full of crass jokes, looks tacky and is laced with sex.
Akshay Kumar’s The Shaukeens is touted to be a coming of age comedy involving three aging men, who are looking for some adventure to spice up their lives. The film directed by Abhishek Sharma stars Anupam Kher, Annu Kapoor and Piyush Mishra along with Lisa Haydon. Akshay Kumar has a cameo in the film where he plays himself.
“I am playing myself in the film and the only thing that was added in my character was that I was shown as an alcoholic in the movie which is different from my real life character. I had a great time shooting for this film,” stated Akshay Kumar.
The trailer of The Shaukeens starts off with the introducing the three main characters in the twilight of their lives, Laali (Anupam Kher), KD (Annu Kapoor) and Pinky (Piyush Mishra) looking to have some fun. The plot shifts from Delhi to Mauritius where they meet Ahana (Lisa Haydon) who is ready to do anything to meet superstar Akshay Kumar.
The trailer features Lisa Haydon in a sexy role and our very own Akshay Kumar, who is essaying a character of the alcoholic superstar.
After seeing the trailer of The Shaukeens one is wondering why try and re-create a cult film, because at the end it, the result would be a Box Office disaster. Haven’t we learnt from films like Ram Gopal Verma Ki Aag (Sholay) and the very recent O Teri (Jaane Bhi Do Yaaro).
