Bollywood Superstar Akshay Kumar to Set ‘SAJA’ Asizzle

If India has its very own Harrison Ford, his name is surely Akshay Kumar.

The hunky action hero – who has appeared in more than 80 Bollywood flicks – is now on the verge of breaking into the U.S. market big-time.

India-na Jones-like.

Akshay: India-na Jones-like.

On January 16, his Chandni Chowk To China opens here, marking Warner Bros.’ first foray into Bollywood flicks.

The big-budget action-comedy casts Akshay as a lowly worker at a roadside food shop who dreams of a more thrilling existence.

After two Chinese strangers convince him he’s a reincarnated war hero, they whisk him off to China to battle an evil smuggler.

Hooray for Bollywood!

Deepika: Hoo-ray for Bollywood!

If you want to know more about they plot, why not ask the star himself – when he drops in on SAJA today at 3:30 p.m. ET to chat with host Sree Sreenivasan?

Joining Akshay on the show will be his co-star, the lovely Deepika Padukone, along with director Nikhil Advani.
