Akshay Kumar, who will next be seen in heist drama ‘Special 26’, also known as ‘Special Chabbis’, said that it took it four months to say yes to the movie as he initially had problems understanding the script.
“It took me around three-four months. The first time I read the script, I didn't understand. Sometimes you don't understand a script till somebody narrates it to you. That was the only thing,” said Akshay Kumar to IANS.
The actor revealed that the movie was based on a real life incident that took place in 1980’s.
“My role is of a very simple man and how his life is shaken up. What happens to a common man and to what limit can he go? The film is based on that and it is based on a real story, this happened in 1986-87," he said.
Akshay Kumar said that movie also carries a small message to the audience.
“Through this film, we want to tell everyone to be very careful and alert. There are huge posters of bogus police at Juhu. When you hire a housemaid or servant, you should know about them to avoid being conned or being taken for a ride. This is the small moral of the story,” he concluded.
The movie tells a story about a group of 26 men who rob rich businessmen and industrialists by posing as CBI and income tax officials.
The movie is directed by Neeraj Pandey of ‘A Wednesday’ fame.
Along with Akshay Kumar, the movie also stars Manoj Bajpayee, Anupam Kher, Jimmy Shergill and Kajal Aggarwal.
‘Special 26’ is all set to release on February 8.
