First look: Akshay, Ash in Action Replayy
The trailer of Akshay Kumar and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan starrer Action Replayy looks promising.
Based on a Gujarati play by director Vipul Amrutlal Shah, the story is quite novel: Bunty (Aditya Roy Kapur) gets fed up with his parents Kishen (Akshay Kumar) and Mala's (Aishwarya Rai Bachchan) constant fights even after 35 years of marriage. So he decides to go to their past to save their love story.
The film has a retro look, as it goes back into the 1970s, to a youthful Akki and Ash. Akki's look in the film is inspired by Sunil Dutt's look in Zakhmee.
Action Replayy has its comic moments like the time when Ash threatens to commit suicide by drowning herself. Akshay tells her to hold on until the night is over, as the water would be too cold for her.

Akshay celebrates his birthday
At the launch, Akki celebrated his 43rd birthday by cutting a cake. He announced he would celebrate his birthday by taking his wife Twinkle on a date.
So which part of his life would Akshay like to rewind to?
The actor went through his life's important moments like when he was punished for not doing homework in school, signing his first film and experiencing his first hit film.
And while he was getting a chance to go back in history, he would have liked to peek at his famous father-in-law Rajesh Khanna's superstardom.
Action Replayy will release on Diwali, November 5.
