Mumbai: Anupam Kher, Annu Kapur, and Piyush Mishra have got together for fun n dhamaal in Mauritius in the entertaining flick. The film directed by Abhishek Sharma of ‘Tere Bin Laden’ fame, also stars Akshay Kumar and Lisa Haydon in lead roles.

The coming of age comedy is a remake of the 1982 classic ‘Shaukeen’ which featured Ashok Kumar, Utpal Dutt and A.K. Hangal as three lecherous old men. The trailer introduces Anupam Kher, Annu Kapoor and Piyush Mishra as Laali, KD and Pinky respectively who land up in Mauritius on a quest for fun.  Akshay Kumar plays himself, albeit an arrogant version, who throws off the camera from a fan’s hand saying, ” Ask me ma’am, before you take a photograph”, much different from the role of Mithun Charaborthy in the original ‘Shaukeen’.  Lisa Haydon essays the role of a fangirl who boasts of an Akshay Kumar scrapbook.

The sight of Anupam Kher, Annu Kapoor and Piyush Mishra in their swimming trunks definitely piques our interest as to what kind of antics their characters get up to while in Mauritius.
