Akshay Kumar plays a real life version of himself in THE SHAUKEENS with a surprising twist. He portrays the role of an alcoholic superstar.

Director Abhishek Sharma reveals, ''In the film, Akshay desperately wants to win the National Award. There is this huge conflict between him and his business manager (Cyrus Broacha), who wants him to break box-office records instead. But Akshay is ready to do anything to bag the most respected award in the country.''

This is perhaps the first unique on screen occurrence of a star ridiculing his real life persona. The Khiladi star, who is known to criticize film awards in reality, plays a complete opposite version of himself in the film.

This interesting spin to the character goes on to form the highlight of the movie produced by Murad Khetani and Ashwin Varde. Sharma further reveals that the manner in which the superstar achieves his goal goes on to become a crucial part of the films plot. 'In the middle of all this mad conflict are a greedy secretary, an eccentric director and a commercial filmmaker - all driving Akshay crazy, who's wasted, anyway! It is madness like never seen before,' adds Abhishek.
