When Priyadarshan's MERE BAAP PEHLE AAP was announced, a lot of people were confused as to which Akshay had been signed to play the main lead. The reason being obvious, both have been a favourite with Priyadarshan. He has indeed proved to be lucky for both Akshay Kumar and Akshaye Khanna, both of whom share an almost cent-per-cent success ratio by way of the films directed by him.
Apart from the film buffs, another person who was confused as to which Akshay had been signed was none other than another Priyan favourite, Rajpal Yadav. Interestingly, Rajpal was the last person to have been finalized by Priyadarshan for MERE BAAP PEHLE AAP. And since he blindly trusts Priyan he signed the film without enquiring about his role or the cast. So when Rajpal arrived on location in Goa and heard the crew mentioning Akshay(e), he thought it was Akshay Kumar. But was pleasantly surprised to see it was Akshaye Khanna instead!
The much waited MERE BAAP PEHLE AAP is all set to hit the screens on 13th June 2008.
