After last week’s disappointment of no Bollywood releases, movie buffs have a treat this Friday- ‘Gabbar is Back’ starring Akshay Kumar releases today (May 1) .
Directed by Krish, this Sanjay Leela Bhansali production revolves around ACP Ajay Singh Rajput/Gabbar, who becomes the leader of a vigilante group in the city, out on a deadly mission, which is to end corruption.
Being an Akshay Kumar film, ‘Gabbar is Back’ will surely be high on the action quotient, especially with some high-flying stunts from the Bollywood Khiladi.

During a film promotion in New Delhi, Akshay Kumar had talked about the real stunts performed by him while shooting for this film. “This film has real stunts, it’s a real film. All incidents are real, action is real, and no CG’s or cables have been used for the same,” he said.
Actress Shruti Haasan will play the actor’s pretty damsel in the film. “My name is Shruti in the film and I play the role of a junior lawyer who happens to meet Gabbar. I play a young, energetic girl and Shruti’s relation with Gabbar is not a cliché,” said Shruti.
Filmmaker Krish, who is known for his Telugu hits like ‘Gamyam’ and ‘Vedam’, admits he has taken a commercial leap with ‘Gabbar is Back’, which is the Hindi remake of Tamil blockbuster “Ramana”, written by A.R. Murugadoss over a decade ago.
“You could say I’ve gone commercial all guns blazing in ‘Gabbar…’. It was mainly done because of the story, which is about a man who takes corruption heads on. All my films so far have had commercial elements, but this time I’ve upped the ante,” said Krish.
‘Gabbar is Back’ also features Suman Talwar, Jaideep Ahlawat and Sunil Grover.
