Akshay Kumar is gearing up for the release of his much-awaited movie Bachchan Paandey which will hit the theatres next week. Ahead of that Akshay and the director Farhad Samji recently revealed an interesting detail that there is a deleted scene from the movie which features actors Abhishek Bachchan and Chunky Panday. But there is a twist!

Abhishek and Chunky are not really in the movie as the makers had used cutouts of their pictures in the deleted scene. In an earlier press conference, Akshay had said the inspiration for the film’s title came at a party for his film Housefull 4 when he had seen Abhishek and Chunky standing together.

But later Akshay Kumar told Bollywood Hungama, “It was just a joke. The actual inspiration for the title was the name of my character from Tashan. In that film, my character was called Bachchan Pandey.” 

Farhad further added, “A deleted scene had these two, but only in the form of their pictures. Kriti and Arshad’s characters were looking for Bachchhan Paandey and they ask a young kid if they had seen him. The kid said yes and pulled out a film magazine with pictures of Abhishek Bachchan and Chunky Pandey. But we didn’t put this scene in the film finally.”
