Rohit Dhawan’s upcoming directorial ‘Dishoom’ is eagerly anticipated due to its star cast including the likes of John Abraham, Varun Dhawan and Jacqueline Fernandez playing lead roles.
However, a lesser known fact is that it also marks the comeback of popular actor Akshaye Khanna on the big screen after a four-year sabbatical, news which has been deliberately kept under wraps by the makers of the movie, if sources are to be believed.
The actor’s absence at a recent wrap up press conference was not missed, especially when director, Dhawan, producer Sajid Nadiadwala and the whole cast were seen in attendance. The makers also opted not to speak about him.
A source, as reported by��Box Office Capsule, shared, “Akshaye is being kept under wraps for now. It is a deliberate measure in keeping which his image of staying away from the limelight.
The source went on to reveal that Khanna’s appearance will be a treat for all if the ‘secret’ is disclosed at the right time and place, “The makers are making elaborate plans to bring him to the fore when the film’s trailer launches. They want him to take centre stage only then. So for now they want him to lie low as he normally does. It suits him as well as the makers.”
When asked��about what the audience can expect from Khanna’s role in the movie, the source said, “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.”
