B-town's Khiladi is leaving no stones unturned for his maiden Hollywood venture as producer. Akshay Kumar is seriously working towards the release of his first Indo-Canadian production 'Breakaway', starring Rob Lowe, Russell Peters, Camilla Belle and Anupam Kher. The film is all set to have a Hollywood release on 30th September.

Reportedly the international version of the film will be titled 'Breakaway', while it is 'Speedy Singh' on Indian shores, in which Akshay will feature only in a cameo role. Directed by Robert Lieberman, 'Breakaway' is a cross-cultural hockey drama set in the Indo-Canadian community of suburban Toronto, Canada. The film follows a young Indian ice hockey player caught between a family's traditional expectations and a dream to make it in the national sport of his adopted country. Real life hockey player Vinay Virmani debuts in the movie in the lead role.

Quoted Akshay in a statement, "The subject of this film has a lot of depth and meaning, many young boys across the globe will easily connect with Vinay's character. The challenges of a young man's journey in his adoptive land, represents the struggles for justice and equality. It expresses in a wonderful way the crossing of two great cultures, it has a brilliant International cast and crew, and I really feel this will touch a lot of hearts in Hollywood...."

Interestingly the movie includes music videos featuring Akki along with hip-hop stars Ludacris and Drake while the music is done by Rhythm Dhol Bass aka RDB. The movie has been written by Jeff Schechter and Ajay Virmani.

According to Akshay, Alliance Atlantis, one of the world's largest distributors, is handling the movie and it's their first film by an Indian producer. "We are treating it like a Hollywood release, with more than 3,500 prints. It's a giant step for us, as an Indian film is trying to break into Hollywood. It will also be the curtainraiser at the Toronto Film Festival on September 10 this year," revealed the B-town's Stunt King to the sources.

All the best, Akki!
