What's the common factor between MERE BAAP PEHLE AAP and GANDHI MY FATHER?

Well, apart from the fact that both the films star Akshaye Khanna in the lead, they also deal with parents. The difference here though is the genre of the two films and the character that Akshaye Khanna plays. While GANDHI MY FATHER was a serious drama, MERE BAAP PEHLE AAP is an out and out family comedy. Moreover, Akshaye Khanna too gets into a role reversal of sorts if one looks at the two films.

Says a source attached to MERE BAAP PEHLE AAP, "In GANDHI MY FATHER, Akshaye Khanna played the role of an errant son while his father (Gandhiji) tried to set him on the right route. However, in case of MERE BAAP PEHLE AAP, it is the turn of Akshaye Khanna to protect his father (played by Paresh Rawal). As an errant middle aged man who is spoilt by the company of naughty old men like Om Puri, Paresh always has Akshaye keeping a tab on him."

Now that's indeed quite some role reversal for the young man here who recently featured in 2008's biggest box office grosser so far - RACE. Even though GANDHI MY FATHER was a box office disappointment, now one looks forward to MERE BAAP PEHLE AAP which pretty much seems to be en route to hitting the bull's eye on its 13th June release!
