Singh is King Sequel: Akshay Kumar to wrestle The Great Khali

Posted by on Jul 28, 2010 | 1 Comment

Previously Bollywood superstar and martial arts freak Akshay Kumar had worked with the Undertaker in Khiladiyon Ka Khiladi and now, he is all set to wrestle with The Great Khali in his next movie ‘Singh is King’ Sequel. Khali has previously starred in Hollywood flicks like The Longest Yard (2005) and Get Smart (2008) and this movie with Akshay Kumar will be his first movie in Hindi.

Bollywood’s favorite action hero would be seen fighting with eight WWE wrestlers from Australia in an action sequence in Vipul Shah’s Singh Is King. Says director Anees Bazmee,” We had called some eight wrestlers who all are from WWE. They were all very excited to be a part of Singh Is King. Apart from shooting with Akshay, they all spoke to him at length about his films. I was surprised that few of them had even seen his films. They all shared a very good rapport with Akshay and there was this very famous wrestler called Chris who even taught him some tricks in arm-wrestling.”

Sajid Khan will be directing Akshay instead of Anees Bazmee, according to sources. Akki has been playing a Sikh in the movie ‘Singh Is King-2’. Vipul is almost ready with the script and has selected same cast Akshay and Katrina for the sequel. The sequel is probable to begin where the first Singh Is King trailed off. As per reports Vipul has stated, “Yes, after much planning and plotting, and two years since the first film, we’ve finally cracked an idea that works. My writer Suresh Nair and I are happy with what we’ve come up with. And yes I’ll be directing the sequel.

The shooting of the movie will be begun by mid-2010, as Katrina is completely booked till next year. Akshay is currently busy with Patiala House and Katrina Kaif is in Spain shooting for Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara. As per report, Akshay is dedicating ‘Singh is King 2′ to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh ji. This movie has 17 Main actors and 150 junior artistes.

When we asked Akshay Kumar why he chose to make the movie with Sajid Nadiadwala and not Vipul Shah (co-producer of Singh is King), he clarified, “Yeah, this film is happening. I was the producer for Singh is King and so I have the rights to make the sequel. Vipul dost hai, lekin he is busy. Toh humne kaha chalo hum khud hi kuch bana lenge!”

It would be interesting to watch Akshay wrestle Khali. Of-course, since it’s a film, Akshay’s gonna win the fight. On being questioned if he was still young and fit enough to wrestle a 7 ft. 3” tall and 430lbs heavy WWE superstar, Akshay sounded uncomfortable but then goofily said, “ Pehle toh maine Sajid se kaha, Khali koi chota mota anaar daana nahi hai… junglon mein ghoomta hai woh…bachhe ki jaan lega kya? …Hahahaha …Hahahahahah… Hahahahah… Hahahaha…ha ha ha….ha ha… ha…ha…” (Stops laughing on realizing that we aren’t laughing) “Vahe Guru saath hai mere…and Singh is King!
