Karan Johar ‘honoured’ to work with Akshay Kumar


Brothers” is the first collaboration between lead actor Akshay Kumar and producer Karan Johar, and the filmmaker says the “wait” has been worth it.

“Akshay was the one person who I was dying to work with since two decades,” Karan, who has produced “Brothers”, said here.

“The wait has to be worth it and there couldn’t have been a better film than ‘Brothers’ for Dharma Productions to work with him. Even Akshay will agree to this,” he added.

Akshay has had an action hero’s image since the 1990s for his daredevil stunts, which he performs on his own.

So, Karan calls Akshay “an indispensable casting for this film”.

Karan feels “Brothers” and Akshay’s performance in the film will stand out.

“When you see ‘Brothers’, you’ll realise that this is Akshay Kumar like never before. I’m very proud and honoured to have worked with Akshay in ‘Brothers’,” he added.

Directed by Karan Malhotra, the movie also features Sidharth Malhotra, Jacqueline Fernandez and Jackie Shroff.
