Akshay returns as 'Boss'; Gear up for action

New Delhi, Oct 13 (IANS) Akshay Kumar is synonymous with action and he is ready to entertain his fans with another action drama "Boss". Releasing Wednesday, this is his first film after the not-so-successful underworld drama "Once Upon Ay Time In Mumbai Dobaara" and it has already created a buzz by entering the Guinness Book of World Records and being the first Hindi movie to release in Latin America.

"Boss" entered the Guinness Book of World Records for having the largest poster after beating Michael Jackson's This Is It. Created by the 46-year-old superstar's fan club, the poster is 58.87 metres wide and 54.94 metres high.

Made at a budget of Rs.72 crore, the Anthony D'Souza-directed film will hit 3,700-3,800 screens, including screens in Panama, Latin America.

A remake of Malayalam film "Pokkiri Raja", "Boss" is a situational comedy about a father and son and their relationship, and it has got a good dose of action too.

In one of his interviews Akshay said that he enjoys the father-son relationship the most and also pointed out there are not too many father-son films in Hindi.

This is Ashwin Varde's first film as a producer. He has co-produced the film under his banner Ashwin Varde Productions along with Viacom18 Motion Pictures and Cape Of Good Hope.

The makers have gone all out to promote the film - they launched their song "Har kisi ko nahi milta" in Dubai.

Interestingly, Akshay will be seen in a Haryanvi avatar in the film and presence of Mithun Chakraborty as his father in the film is expected to heighten the entertainment quotient. If that is not enough, the star will be seen doing jogging in a very peculiar style on truck tops.

The film will see Akshay as kind-hearted Haryanavi gangster, apparently known as Boss, while Shiv Pandit will be seen as his younger brother.

The director has roped in Danny Denzongpa as Akshay's mentor and Ronit Roy as a ruthless police officer who will be at loggerheads with the Boss.

As far as glamour quotient is concerned, it will be added by Aditi Rao Hydari as the female lead.

The film got into trouble when a lawyer filed a petition in Delhi High Court seeking a stay on the release of "Boss" on the ground that a Honey Singh song - 'Party all Night' - contained "vulgar" words.
