Why Are Dishoom Makers Keeping Akshaye Khanna's Role Under Wraps?
The actor has been missing in action for quite some time
After a hiatus, Akshaye Khanna will be seen in Rohit Dhawan's upcoming film, Dishoom, which stars John Abraham, Jacqueline Fernandez and Varun Dhawan. But the makers have not said much about Akshaye’s role in the film.
At the film's wrap up event recently, the entire cast as well as director Rohit and producer Sajid Nadiadwala was present, but Akshaye was no where to be seen.
A source was quoted saying, "Akshaye is being kept under wraps for now. It is a deliberate measure in keeping with his image of staying away from the limelight. The makers are making elaborate plans to bring him to the fore when the film's trailer launches. They want him to take centrestage only then. So now for now they want him to lie low as he normally does. It suits him as well as the makers fine."
According to reports, Akshaye will be seen playing a gray character in the film and it apparently took a lot of convincing to get him on board.
"His character has a lot of one-liners, the kind that can be seriously funny. He shot for the film during the unit's Abu Dhabi schedule," added the source.
