Akshay Kumar turns Khiladi again in his new film Khiladi 786 releasing today. It is the 8th film in the Khiladi series after Khiladi, Main Khiladi Tu Anari, Sabse Bada Khiladi , Khiladiyon Ka Khiladi, Mr And Mrs Khiladi, International Khiladi and Khiladi 420.
Directed by Ashish R Mohan, the action-comedy features Asin in the female lead, who plays a Marathi girl in the film. The Pakistan Censor Board recently banned advertisements for Khiladi 786 because the number 786 is revered by Muslims and could hurt their religious sentiments. It also directed cinema halls and distributors not to release the trailers and to remove billboards too. Like other Bollywood stars, Akshay Kumar has a sizeable following in Pakistan.
