While Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan found a fan in Hollywood actor Hugh Jackman, action star Akshay Kumar has found one in Oscar winner Al Pacino. Al Pacino of fame happened to see the theatrical trailer of Akshay's upcoming film "Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai Dobaara" (OUATIM Dobaara) and was impressed by his performance as a dangerous underworld don named Shoaib. He also referred to the film as Bollywood's answer to edge-of-the-seat gangster entertainers.
"My friend Barry Navidi showed me a promo of an Indian film with Akshay Kumar. It brought some fond memories back from my Godfather days," "The Godfather" star told The Times of India. On receiving compliments from Al Pacino, an elated Akshay said, "A touch of appreciation is always held dearly by an actor, even if it's from the simplest of people like our beloved spot boys. But to have your work spoken of so kindly by the world's most admired 'gangster' Pacino himself, I had goosebumps thinking about him watching the promo."
