Akshay on partnering with Himesh for KHILADI 786: This isn't charity

By Joginder Tuteja, Glamsham Editorial

KHILADI 786 is all set for release and while the film's music has caught on in a big way with Akshay Kumar and Asin finding themselves in the middle of all the fun, the surprise element is said to be none other than Himesh Reshammiya.

While he is wearing quite a few hats in the film, right from being a story writer to a co-producer and of course the composer, Himesh would also be seen facing the camera in KHILADI 786. Though as a composer Himesh has been doing quite well, what with year 2012 resulting in quite a few musical successes including SON OF SARDAAR, OMG OH MY GOD! and BOL BACHCHAN, as an actor he is waiting for a big success at the box office.

One wonders that when Akshay consented to work on KHILADI 786, was it the case of him stepping out and make a film for his friend Himesh?

"Himesh has created superb music for KHILADI 786 and you can't doubt that even for a second. However who can expect a great musician to storm the world of cinema so soon? Look at me; it's like me attempting to sing! I can whack out a tune, yeah, but I am not exactly what you can call a good singer nor, does that mean I should never sing? This isn't a charity case; this is a partnership all the way," Akshay details.

Now that should indeed be music to Himesh's ears. Pun intended!
