Watch: Akshay Kumar’s ‘Gabbar Is Back’ teaser in ‘Sholay’ style


The moving teaser of Akshay Kumar starrer ‘Gabbar Is Back’ is out and the teaser reminds us of yesteryear blockbuster ‘Sholay’. Akshay Kumar mouthed dialogue at the backdrop and it sounds like the iconic villain of Bollywood, Amjad Khan.

The short few seconds teaser has the dialogue, "50-50 kos door jab koi rishwat leta hai to sab kehte hain mat le warna gabbar aa jaega."

The teaser did not reveal much except it draws an outline of Akshay's face. The dialogue at the background in Akshay’s voice creates an impact.

In ‘Gabbar Is back’, Akshay Kumar plays an anti-corruption body, who fights against corruption and Shruti Haasan his love interest. Kareena Kapoor Khan will be seen in a cameo. ‘Gabbar Is Back’ also stars Prakash Raj, Sunil Grover and Suman Talwar playing pivotal roles.
