Akshay Kumar to rope in Russell Peters & Rob Lowe for Break Away?


After producing films like Singh Is Kinng, De Dana Dan, Khatta Meetha, as well as upcoming films like Action Replayy, Patiala House and Tees Maar Khan that have entertained the Indian audiences, Bollywood's 'Khiladi' - Akshay Kumar is all set to go international with his film Break Away. The English-Punjabi film showcases the struggles faced by South Asian immigrants.

The film in essence is a cross-cultural comedy, with a story that revolves around a Sikh immigrant family - how they cope with cultural conflicts and adapt to playing ice hockey and their new life. Unlike other cross-cultural films, Break Away is said to be quite unique.

The film, which is being directed by Robert Lieberman, will have Toronto-born Vinay Virmani in the lead role, while Akshay has even roped in the petite lass from the film 10000 BC Camilla Belle. However, what's interesting to know is that Akki being a big fan of the Indo-Canadian comic sensation Russell Peters, is contemplating on roping him for the film along with Rob Lowe from the hit series 'Brothers and Sisters'.

Break Away, which will mostly be shot in Toronto, is scheduled to begin in the coming few weeks and is said to be about one-hour-and-fifty-minutes long with its release being tentatively slated for next year.​
