ENTERTAINMENT is all set to release this Friday and the film marks the arrival of yet another debutant director duo - Sajid and Farhad. Architect of quite a few super-hits in the capacity of writers, Sajid and Farhad have been quite prominent in the Bollywood circuits and managed to bag none less than Akshay Kumar for their first ever assignment where they got to call the shots.
"And how well they have managed to do that," exclaims Akshay who has given opportunity to yet another set of new talented directors, "To me, they are the pinnacle of family cinema in this industry! Every move that they make, every word that they write, every concept that they come up with, is in the interest of family audiences from all over India. They come from one of the most family orientated backgrounds, where life is just about making your near and dear ones happy."
No wonder, the film is aiming for audience in the age group of 6 to 60. Meanwhile, Akshay did take a relatively serious turn with his last dramatic action thriller HOLIDAY which went on to fetch him quite a few accolades.

"The thing I am overwhelmed with most is the humbling response from all corners of the world. Whether it was the subject, genre or the performance, the response was quite heartwarming," says Akshay, "This was A.R Murugadoss’ baby and I thank him sincerely for wanting me to be his ‘soldier’. I will neither forget this opportunity nor the experience."
Well, for those looking forward to some more action and drama, there is BABY and GABBAR awaiting the audience early next year. Till then, it is all about ENTERTAINMENT which is a production of Tips and Pen.
