Gabbar Is Back is not Sholay 2: Akshay Kumar

“This Gabbar is different... that Gabbar was the villain and this Gabbar is the hero. This film has nothing to do with that film, this film is not Sholay 2. Both the characters are different,” Akshay told reporters during the trailer launch of Gabbar Is Back.

Directed by famous southern director Krish and produced by Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Viacom 18 Motion Pictures, Gabbar Is Back features Akshay Kumar and Shruti Haasan, and is slated to
release on May 1.

Gabbar Is Back is a remake of 2002 Tamil film Ramanaa. Akshay will be seen as a vigilante, a righteous man and an enemy of the corrupt. Asked how did he prepare himself for this role, Akshay said: “I don’t prepare for my character. I just follow my director’s vision because he knows the best as he knows the script very well.

“I follow the director. If I listen to too many people, and give him my vision, that will create confusion.”
