Sporting uber cool and trendy ‘Once Upon a Time in IPL’ T-shirts, courtesy Twinkle Khanna’s brain child, the entire team of Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai 2 was in Kolkata for a brief tête-à-tête with the Press.
While Imran Khan looked suave in that cool chocolate boy look, Sonakshi Sinha looked like a baby doll, shedding off pounds like cakewalk. But it was the charming and overtly grasping Akshay Kumar who walked away with all the paparrazi.
Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai was a successful franchise. But OUATIM 2 touts to be bigger, better and grander! But what made the lead cast give a nod to this otherwise glamorized gangster flick. “OUATIM was a really good film and because the film was so good as a script and a story, I instantly got drawn in doing the sequel. And I can assure you that the second part will also be equally good, rather better”, quipped Akshay, gleefully fidgeting with his glares.
But Imran Khan who has always attempted to do some power packed grueling action films and failed seems to be really hopeful about this film. “Apart from being a really good film, Once Upon a Time in Mumbaai was a hugely entertaining film. I had watched the film and was hugely entertained. I select films that I would like to watch myself. There are every rare occasions when such films come our way where the emotions are so well portrayed and narrated. Be it the drama, the action or the romance everything in this film is really good. The funny scenes are hilarious, the romantic scenes are beautiful and the action scenes are power packed.”
Sonakshi who recently outdid herself in the retro look in the peppy ‘Thank God Its Friday’ number from an otherwise dull film is really keen to sport the retro look. “The main punch in the film is the beautiful story that it revolves around. It is a wonderful story, hugely entertaining and that actually serves as the film’s USP”
But right at the moment the word USP came out, Akshay quickly and very cheekily retorted back with a smile, “Sonakshi is the main USP of the film since we, as in me and Imran both fight for her.”
