Actors Akshay Kumar and Emraan Hashmi were in attendance at the trailer launch of Selfiee on Sunday. While Kumar plays an actor in the movie, Hashmi plays an RTO officer who faces off against the superstar. Talking about his working experience with his co-star, Emraan recalled how Akshay stood by him and his family during his son’s cancer battle.
Emraan Hashmi reveals Selfiee co-star Akshay Kumar was a ‘farishta’ during his son’s cancer battle: “He was the first one to call and stand by me, our family”
“I felt bad mouthing those lines. I’ve followed him as a fan, I’ve adored him. I’ve gotten the privilege of knowing him in the past few years. He was there for me when there was a health issue with my son. He was the first one to call and stand by me, stand by family, our family,” Emraan Hashmi said at the trailer launch.
“I didn’t know him well back then. A lot of people surround you in your good times but bure waqt mein joh farishtey aate hai (the angels who come to you in your tough times), that’s Akshay,” Emraan added.
Selfiee is a remake of the 2019 Malayalam-language comedy-drama Driving Licence, which originally starred Prithviraj Sukumaran and Suraj Venjaramoodu. The Hindi remake also stars Diana Penty and Nushrratt Bharuccha. It releases in theatres on February 24, 2023.
