Vikramaditya Motwane, the director of the film AK vs AK, recently revealed that Aamir Khan and Akshay Kumar were considered for the lead role in the film before Anil Kapoor was signed. In an interview with Mid-Day, Motwane said that the writer Avinash Sampath wrote the film keeping Aamir Khan in mind, but he asked him to drop the idea as he felt that Aamir would never sign such a film. Later, they approached Akshay Kumar, who also has the initials AK, but he almost threw them out of his office after hearing the film’s concept.
AK vs AK is a thriller in ‘reality’ TV format, where Anil Kapoor and Anurag Kashyap play fictionalized versions of themselves. The film is about a film director, played by Kashyap, who kidnaps a movie star, played by Kapoor, and films the star’s search for his missing daughter in real-time. The film is a self-reflexive, inside joke at stardom and stereotypes, and offers a possibility to break Bollywood’s untenable, outdated, and lazy star system.
