Patiala House will mark the return of Director Nikhil Advani. The Flick stars Akshay Kumar and Anushka Sharma.
The story is about a Punjabi guy in Southall, London. He dreams of playing cricket for England, but has to face up to his anti-English, conservative and authoritarian Sikh dad Gurtej Kahlon (Rishi Kapoor). Akshay’s character is caught in the dilemma of either pursuing his dream or toe his dad’s line.
“The essence of Patiala House is pursuing your dream when life gives you a second chance. In this pursuit, Akshay happens to be a cricketer, but he could been a musician or a poet. It can be your story or mine. Patiala House is the story of the Kahlon family, and their travails,” Advani is quoted as saying about the film.
The movie also sees Akshay with his real mom-in-law Dimple Kapadia. She plays his mother.
The movie will release on February 11.
