Akshay Kumar on 'Housefull 4' look: Not trying to ape anyone

Bollywood superstar Akshay Kumar, who is playing a fictional historical character named Rajkumar Bala in "Housefull 4", has said that makers of the forthcoming comedy-drama film haven't tried to ape any character from previous films.

Akshay Kumar was interacting with the media to promote 'Housefull 4' along his co-actors Ritiesh Deshmukh, Bobby Deol, Kriti Sanon, Pooja Hegde, Kriti Kharbanda and Chunky Panday on Thursday in Mumbai.

The story of 'Housefull 4' is based on reincarnation, spanning a period of 600 years from 1419 to 2019, and ever since the film's trailer was released, many people have pointed out similarities between Akshay Kumar's character and Ranveer Singh's look in "Bajirao Mastani". Both characters are bald and based in history, and also have similar get-up and costume.

Housefull 4' is directed by Farhad Samji, and produced by Sajid Nadiadwala. The film is scheduled for an October 26 release.    - IANS
