Ice hockey is the backdrop for his latest production SPEEDY SINGHS (BREAKAWAY) , the cross-cultural Indo-Canadian film starring Rob Lowe, Russell Peters, Camilla Belle and Vinay Virmani, releasing in the UK on 30th September 2011. During the filming, Akshay became interested in the sport and realized that very few people knew or participated in Ice Hockey in India. He then decided to make it his personal interest to motivate and promote the sport in India and he hopes that his small contribution will encourage people to participate in ice hockey, support the talents already in the field and further popularize it in India.

SPEEDY SINGHS releases in cinemas across the UK on 30th September 2011.
