The Khiladi of Bollywood, Akshay Kumar, is the new underworld don. He will soon be seen as an underworld don in his upcoming flick, "Once Upon A Time in Mumbaai Again".

The action hero has denied rumours that he would be portraying the role of underworld don Dawood Ibrahim in the film.

The 45-year-old actor said that his role is not related to anyone in real life and it is just a continuation of the character of Shoaib which was played by Emraan Hashmi in the first installment of the film.  


"It is not based on any such character. I play this character of Shoaib who is an underworld don, it is a fictional thing. It is not related to anyone in real. It is continuation of part one," Akshay said during the trailer launch of the film.

"I had seen Shoaib's character in first part and I did carry the character forward," he said.

"OUATIMA" is filled with action and lot of romance. Apart from Akshay, it also features Imran Khan, Sonakshi Sinha and Sonali Bendre in important roles.

The film will be released on Eid - 8 August - along with Shah Rukh Khan starrer rom-com, "Chennai Express".

During the trailer launch of the film, Akshay was asked if his film would face a tough competition from "Chennai Express" at the box office, to which the actor replied, "I see this in a positive way. Eid is a big day. It is big enough for two films. There is no point in thinking too much over it."

The trailer of launch of "Once Upon A Time in Mumbaai Again" was launched on 29 May in the presence of Akshay, Imran Khan, Sonakshi Sinha, Jeetendra Kapoor, director Milan Lutharia and  Tushar Kapoor.
