Akshaye re-emerges as villain
Akshaye Khanna, who was last seen on the big screen in Farah Khan’s 2010 film Tees Maar Khan, where he played an actor pining for an Oscar, is all set to make a grand comeback. According to a report in a leading tabloid he has given the nod to Rohit Dhawan’s yet-unnamed action comedy. The twist in the story is that Akshaye returns not as a lead but as a villain. The character has a flashy, slightly overthe-top wardrobe and Akshay will be seen in a completely new avatar. The actor, who disappeared from the Bollywood radar, had played the villain to perfection in Abbas Mustan’s 2008 thriller, Race and before that in the director duo’s Humraaz in 2002. His last showbiz stint was a voice part in Nikhil Advani’s animated feature, Delhi Safari in 2012.
