Khatta Meetha will be screened from next month.
Akki admitted that he did get offers from Hollywood, which might be small and some time even big, but he would prefer to remain in the safer zone of bollywood rather than going for unchartered territory in Hollywood.
Akshay plays the character of a Marathi Manoos Sachin Tichkule, who is an honest but struggling road construction contractor. Due to his lack of money and not being able to bribe the officials of Municipal Corporation, his contracts are not passed and bills not paid.
Sachin is made to run from pillar to post for every work due to his honesty and rampant corruption in the political system.
However, when it becomes unbearable and his survival is threatened, Sachin too joins them and becomes corrupt to get his bills passed.
Akshay Kumar and Priyadarshan pairing has always worked magic on the celluloid and the movie has been hit at the box office like ‘Bhagam Bhag’, etc.
This ‘Khatta Meetha’ too promises to be a laugh riot with Akshay Kumar playing the part of a Marathi manoos for the first time in his illustrious bollywood career.
‘Khatta Meetha’ is remake of a hit Malayalam flick and due for worldwide release on July 23.
