BREAKAWAY is ready for a global release on the 30th of September. One of the world's largest distributors, Alliance Atlantis will take up this film for distribution, which is their first venture with an Indian producer.

Treating it like a Hollywood release, with more than 3,500 prints, it will also be the curtain raiser at the Toronto Film Festival on September 10 this year.

CHECK OUT: Akshay prefers it low-key for now

The international release of the film is titled as BREAKAWAY and the Indian version is called SPEEDY SINGHS. The story is written by Jeff Schechter and Ajay Virmani with Akshay playing a cameo in it. The movie is directed by Robert Lieberman.

In Akshay Kumar's words, "BREAKAWAY is a touching story about a young Indian Ice Hockey player who wants to get into the big league."

He adds, "I am introducing Vinay Virmani, who is a very good Ice Hockey player in real life as well. The film is about an Indian family wanting to break the stranglehold the Whites have abroad in sports."
