Promos of SPECIAL 26 are making waves and it is quite apparent that this is one Akshay Kumar film which indeed promises to be 'different'. So much so that while one is used to the superstar getting into the 'naachgaana' mode with his leading ladies time and again, this time around it is the bunch of men (with Anupam Kher, Manoj Bajpai and Jimmy Sheirgill) finding good prominence right through the promotional campaign.
While Kajal Aggarwal is the leading lady in the film, one wonders that in a movie about con-men, how she really fits into the whole affair.
'This is Bollywood after all; it wouldn't be a 'film' if there wasn't a female beauty lurking behind the curtains and making all men weep with her very presence,'' smiles Akshay, 'In the film we may be telling the tale of a 'Heist of the century' but every man will always have his eyes on more than one jewel at any time in life.'
Well, there is something in those lines for audience already in the offering, what with the track 'Gore Mukhde Pe Zulfa Di Chaava' all set to be seen and heard with much more vigor.
'In the film, Kajal is the timeless Indian beauty behind my 'brave & immoral corrupt brains'. One could say that she is the simple flower that makes my crooked heart turn to soggy marshmallow. But then not even love can make me honest in this film, which again is a first for me,'' hints Akshay.
Well, we would know once the film releases all over on 8th February.
