MUMBAI: It was a bright and sunny morning, when the team of Akshay Kumar starrer ‘Special 26’ decided to head out to promote their film in Mumbai. The action star Akshay Kumar was joined by his pretty co-star Kajal Aggarwal, at the meet and greet organised to promote the film.
The assembled media persons were treated to a very jovial Akshay and his banter on all things special about ‘Special 26’. The hero was at his heroic best, when he tried to describe what the film was about, without revealing too much about the plot. Clad in a crisp white shirt and black trousers, the muscle man Akshay was certainly in his element at the press con.
His co-star Kajal Aggarwal, of ‘Singham’ fame, was quick to add her two cents about the film and her experience of working with the ‘Khiladi’ Kumar, after starring opposite Ajay ‘Lion’ Devgn. Kajal looked suitably pretty in a mustard coloured tee with a white lace waistcoat on top.
Akshay did his best to sum up the plot of the film, which is directed by Neeraj Pandey of ‘A Wednesday’ fame. He said: “Back in the olden days, people used to have lots of black money, which they would stash away under mattresses, in their roofs, or in some secret place in their house. And then when the I.T Department came knocking with a full-fledged raid, they couldn’t complain to anyone since this money was illegal anyway. So there were a lot of cases of fake CID raids and fake Income Tax raids on such people. ‘Special 26’ is about one such incident, where a jewelry store is raided by fake I.T. sleuths, who run away with all that money and jewelry. It is based on a real life incident.
With such an interesting plot line, we’re sure the film will draw in curious audiences by the thousands. Akshay Kumar would sure be happy when that happens!
