The film, directed by Niraj Pandey, is about the infamous jewellery heist of 1987, in which 26 men, posed as CBI officers to wipe clean the many shops of Zaveri Bazaar, in Mumbai. Though the film is being shot under an intense security cover, and the storyline too has been kept mostly under wraps, Mirror managed to get an eyeful of the star in Delhi while he was shooting.
The shoot has a special significance for the actor, who was born in Delhi’s Chandni Chowk. It was an emotional homecoming for the star, who shared some of his earliest memories of Holi in the colorful neighborhood with his unit members.
According to eye-witnesses, had it not been for the robust bandobast, it would be difficult to recognize Akshay with his gelled hair and moustache. We leave it to you to look for the resemblance.
