Akshay Kumar Unveils The First Look Of Brothers

Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar, who is known to be active on social media platforms and share glimpses of his personal and professional lives, unveiled the first look of his upcoming movie Brothers on his social media accounts.

Brothers, starring Akshay Kumar, Sidharth Malhotra, Jackie Shroff and Jacqueline Fernandez is an official adaptation of 2011 Hollywood movie Warrior, starring Tom Hardy and Joel Edgerton, Erik Apple and Jennifer Morrison.

It’s a story of two brothers who confront each other and their conflicted past when they end up in a wrestling ring against each other. The film was a critical success and won acclaims for its emotional angles of forgiveness and family bonds.

In the poster unveiled yesterday, we can see both Kumar and Malhotra in beefed-up avatars, to justify the roles of wrestlers. While Sidharth Malhotra is seen in a full beard for the first time, Akshay too has kept his salt-and-peppered beard for the first time in a movie. Prior to this, it was only during award functions and reality shows that we spotted Akshay in a beard. Veteran actor Jackie Shroff, who will be seen playing the role of the brothers, is seen in the backyard, with his look justifying the role of a father recovering from alcohol problems.

Another detail that we noticed in the poster was that both Akshay and Sidharth are playing Christians in the movie, as suggested by the Christ Tattoo that Akshay is seen sporting on his arm and the Cross lockets that both Sidharth and Akshay are wearing. This suggests that the makers have tried to not change too many details from the plot of Warrior, given the fact that the director of the movie was vocal about the spiritual inspiration of the movie.
