Akshay Kumar + Gurpreet Ghuggi + Russell Peters = Breakaway

Breakaway film Gurpreet Ghuggi Russell PetersHari Om Entertainment, First Take Entertainment, Productions Polytechnique RP and Whizbang Films began the principal photography of the upcoming Punjabi – English film BREAKAWAY on September 20, 2010. Breakaway is a cross-cultural hockey drama set in the Indo-Canadian community of suburban Toronto, Canada. The film follows a hero caught between a family’s traditional expectations and a dream to make it in the national sport of his adopted country. The movie is a colourful, humorous and heart-felt drama. The setting is an obstacle-strewn love story with a dramatic quest for the hero. Interestingly enough there are English, Punjabi and Hindi songs in the film with dancing numbers of RDB.

Most importantly Bollywood hero Akshay Kumar is producing this film. The film is being directed by Robert Lieberman renowned for Disney’s ‘Mighty Ducks’. Russell Peters, Gurpreet Ghuggi, Anupam Kher and Camilla Belle are all in this film. “I grew up in Brampton, where Breakaway is set and I know the characters in this movie first-hand. This is a great story about an Indian kid with a dream to do his own thing…. something I know a thing or two about,” says Russell Peters. Russell, along with his brother Clayton Peters will also serve as Executive Producers of the film. Our very own Gurpreet Ghuggi is also in the film and as he plays the role of Vinay Virmani’s uncle and Russell Peters plays the role of his son. WOW…. Isnt that freakin’ amazing? All of us should watch this film for this fact alone…

Canadian born Vinay Virmani plays the lead role and he is an exceptional ice hockey player from the Canadian South Asian community has attended the Lee Streesberg Theatre and Film Institute and will play the prime role in the sports centric film, a theme Akshay Kumar is well acquainted with.

Akshay will play Akshay in Breakaway and that too because the debutant Vinay Virmani, who has co-scripted Breakaway, hero-worships Akshay and wrote the role especially for the star. Says a source close to the project, “Akshay and AJ (that’s how Ajay Virmani likes to be known) go back a long way. In fact, AJ has a permanent room in his home for Akshay for whenever the star visits Toronto. Earlier, AJ ghost-produced some of Akshay’s films. Now they’re openly into joint ventures. Akshay has virtually seen Vinay grow up in front of him. The boy completely idolizes Akshay to the extent of imitating his mannerisms and watching all his films repeatedly.”

When Vinay wrote the father-son story in Breakaway, he not only borrowed scenes from his own life with his father-figure Akshay, the boy insisted on creating a cameo for his idol. For the first time, Akshay Kumar will appear as himself on screen. Confirming this, Anupam Kher who plays Vinay Virmani’s father in Breakaway says from Toronto, “Akshay will appear as himself in the film. Breakaway is an emotional father-son story. I accepted the film because I’ve a very powerful role as a father.” Anupam tried to grow a beard for the part. But finally gave up. “The facial growth was just not sufficient. So Vinay will have to make do with a beardless father.”

Akshay Kumar says, “I’m confident that the film will strike a chord with Hollywood audiences…it expresses in a wonderful way the crossing of 2 great cultures -am proud to be associated with a project that has a brilliant and talented international cast and crew such as the one we have on board for Breakaway”

We dont care what Hollywood thinks about this film, we just want to see Ghuggi and Russell Peters in father and son role.. jesus.. two great comedians of two different areans.. together in a film.. this is like Homer and Peter put together in Flintstones…

    I just saw Akshay and gughi at the Toronto Gurduwara giving some shots for the movie. Akshay was wearing an achkan and he was shooting with a little boy and all we could do was say hi to Akshay as he had tons of people around him. It was nice seeing him and I will surely watch the movie>

      On the other hand we all might be let down if the two of them will have a very small role in the film. Sometimes its not easy to handle a character for a great comedian.
