Heyy Babyy combines all the ingredients of another runaway success for Bollywood cinema’s hottest property. As if 2007 hasn’t already seen Akshay Kumar dominate the Indian film industry on a global level, following the colossal Box Office success of Namastey London and his show-stealing stage performance alongside UK-based Bhangra troupe, RDB, at the IIFA Awards in Yorkshire, winning him the praise of worldwide audiences and critics alike, Akshay once again proves his infinite talents as a Bollywood all-rounder.
Heyy Babyy offers audiences a wholly new Bollywood experience and Akshay Kumar will undoubtedly win over the hearts of critics and cineastes once more, mastering the distinctive role of sexy Sydney-based bachelor, nightclub employee and womaniser, Aroush, whose life is turned upside down by the arrival of a diaper-clad baby on his doorstep.
Akshay Kumar’s film career reaches even higher pinnacles, as he once again proves his incomparable versatility as a lead actor of the new millennium, displaying his skills in the arena of comedy in one of 2007’s most enthralling Bollywood capers.
Heyy Babyy draws inspiration from the 1987 classic, Three Men And A Baby, and brings together the crème of Bollywood talent, headed by Akshay Kumar, who joins forces with charming lead lady Vidya Balan and sidekicks Fardeen Khan and Riteish Deshmukh in one of this summer’s most eagerly anticipated film releases, shot on location in Australia, France and India.
Combining the gifted directing talents of Sajid Khan with the production expertise and industry prowess of Sajid Nadiadwala, Heyy Babyy is an endearing romantic comedy with the winning formula to become Summer 2007’s biggest cinema success story. Adding to that the matchless talents of Akshay Kumar, Heyy Babyy is sure to secure the flawless actor with a healthy collection of film awards and accolades in 2008.
In relation to what is predicted to be this summer’s biggest Bollywood hit, Akshay comments, ‘I am extremely proud of Heyy Babyy. It is quite unlike any other film that I have done, and it was a great challenge to achieve the perfect combination of sensitivity and humour. I fell my colleagues from the industry and I have done a great job on this film and I have full faith that audiences will go and see it several times over.”
Heyy Babyy releases in the UK and internationally on 24th August.
Akshay Kumar is available for limited interviews.
