While the original featured Akshay and Saif Ali Khan, the remix version stars a dance face-off between Akshay and Emraan, along with Nushrratt Bharuccha and Diana Penty. Speaking about the film’s success, director Raj Mehta said, “I’ve been fortunate to have a streak of good songs in my films and I’m happy Main Khiladi is helping me continue that streak.” ‘Selfiee’ is a remake of 2019 Malayalam film ‘Driving Licence’, which featured Prithviraj Sukumaran and Suraj Venjaramoodu in the lead roles. This entertainer is scheduled to hit the screens on February 4.
Apart from this, Akshay Kumar also has ‘Bade Miyan Chote Miyan’ with Tiger Shroff in the pipeline and recently the duo re-created the hook step of ‘Main Khiladi’. Sharing a video of their act, Akshay wrote, “So @tigerjackieshroff played #MainKhiladi with me and this happened!! How about you make a #MainKhiladi reel with your bestie? I’ll repost. #Selfiee
Akshay will also mark his Marathi debut with ‘Vedhat Marathi Veer Daudle Saat’ wherein he will play the role of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj on the big screen. Excited about his Marathi debut, Akshay had previously shared, “It’s a dream come true role for me. I think portraying Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj on the big screen is a very huge responsibility. I was taken aback when Raj Thackeray asked me to portray this role.”
