Director Vipul Shah gets the stunning jodi of Akshay Kumar and Aishwarya Rai together for his film ACTION REPLAYY. ACTION REPLAYY is a retro cool film that is high on style quotient and emotionally rewarding too.

Aishwarya says, "It is a fun-genre romantic film." And her good-looking co-star, the handsome Akshay adds, "It's a very special film for me for many reasons. This is my tribute to the 70s that was the greatest retro era. I was kicked with the idea because I'm entering the time in cinema where my father-in-law (Rajesh Khanna) was a superstar. It is my fifth film with Vipul and definitely another one to remember. Ash and I had a brief romantic interlude in Raj Kumar Santoshi's KHAKEE, but ACTION REPLAYY is our first romantic comedy together. Believe me, I was blushing through the making and there's a lot I wish to tell my audience about. But Vipul wants me to keep things under wraps for the moment."

Without giving away too much, one can safely say that ACTION REPLAYY is all about rewinding your life. It is about Kishen and Mala - two bickering senior citizens who "rediscover romance'' on their 33rd wedding anniversary, when their son gets them into retro mode. Vipul Shah, who had a blast making ACTION REPLAYY, says, "Akki and I have an impeccable box office record. We enjoyed success with ANKHEIN, WAQT- RACE Again NAMASTEY LONDON and SINGH IS KINNG. ACTION REPLAYY is a film where the two of us return after a gap of almost three years. And believe me, it is a great way to return."

The film is very hip and caters to the sensibilities of the young generation. "For me it was an exciting experience because I could bring together Aishwarya and Akshay, a pair I had been wanting to cast for sometime now. They're both good-looking, super-talented and what's more, they're fashion icons as well. Akki has made an amazing screen pair with some of the existing girls but believe me, he and Ash are extra special," adds Vipul.
