Akshay Kumar’s Khiladiyon Ka Khiladi has clocked 25 years of the film’s release. On Sunday, Akshay shared a meme that read, “Raise your hand if you have defeated The Undertaker” as he celebrated the film, which released in 1996. Posting the meme on Instagram, Akshay also shared a fun fact. “It was wrestler Brian Lee who played The Undertaker in the film,” he wrote.

Khiladiyon Ka Khiladi had a scene where Akshay’s character fights the Undertaker. However, as the actor clarified, it was not actually the WWE wrestler but Brian Lee who was featured in the film. “A hilarious note to mark 25 years to the release of #KhiladiyonKaKhiladi tomorrow! A fun fact though: it was wrestler Brian Lee who played The Undertaker in the film,” he tweeted.

Karan Kundrra, Ayushmann Khurrana and Varun Dhawan were among many who reacted on the Instagram post. “Epic,” Kundrra wrote while Varun called Akshay as the “last man standing.”

Khiladiyon Ka Khiladi had released in 1996. The film starred Akshay along with Raveena Tandon and Rekha.

On the work front, Akshay has a couple of interesting projects in his kitty. The actor will be seen playing a police officer in Rohit Shetty’s Sooryavanshi, which was supposed to release earlier this year. However, the film was postponed indefinitely due to Covid-19 pandemic in the country.
