According to Akshay, "I feel great about it. It had never gone away from me, I always used to do risks and it's great becauseKhiladi is a word which means a player, a sportsman. You can connect it with anything, so it's great coming back to it."
Recently, the movie was hitting the headlines after the Pakistan Censor Board banned its advertisements in the country because the number 786 is revered by some Muslims and it may hurt their sentiments.
The Censor Board also directed cinema halls and distributors not to release the movie's trailers and to remove billboards for the film. Akshay Kumar too has a very big following in Pakistan.
Twinkle Khanna, Himesh Reshammiya and Sunil Lulla has produced the action-comedy flick.
