Nikhil Advani was in hunt for a young guy who would play 17 year Akshay Kumar in his next film PATIALA HOUSE. It seems it was a long hunt as under no circumstances he wanted to compromise on any guy.

Usman Quershi was on board in the first meeting itself. He now plays 17 year old Akshay Kumar in T-Series PATIALA HOUSE. It seems the resemblance between Usman Quershi and the younger Akshay Kumar was so prominent that the entire team was thrilled to have him on the sets and gifted him with a special nick name as "Akki Junior"

Producer, Bhushan Kumar, "We were completely bowled over by the striking resemblance between the two- Akshay and Usman. And after the screen test, without a doubt we found our 17 year old Akshay for PATIALA HOUSE. It is not easy to play a younger role of such a superstar but Usman has done a great job."

Akshay Kumar was equally surprised and excited seeing the resemblance and they also discovered that they had a common scar on the eyebrow and Akshay admitted that his body structure and body type were quite like Usman when he was 17 years old.

Hmmm one wonders how the original Khiladi was when he was 17 years of age...

PATIALA HOUSE releases on the 11th February 2011.
