Actor Akshay Kumar celebrated 25 years of his action film Khiladiyon Ka Khiladi.
A night before the film’s silver jubilee, Akshay took to Twitter to share a ‘funny and rather lesser known note’ about his iconic movie.
What Did Akshay Kumar Say?
Akshay Kumar retweeted a meme which said that he was among the few people who managed to defeat the wrestling icon Undertaker in his career.
The meme appeared to refer to his movie, Khiladiyon Ka Khiladi where his character fights the duplicate of Undertaker.
However, Akshay made it clear that it was not really the Undertaker that was fighting in the movie but Brian Lee who was playing the wrestler’s duplicate.
Who Was The Wrestler He Fought In The Movie?
“A hilarious note to mark 25 years to the release of #KhiladiyonKaKhiladi tomorrow! A fun fact though: it was wrestler Brian Lee who played The Undertaker in the film,” he tweeted.
Undertaker is a licensed character. He has been played by wrestler Mark Callaway since 1991. Brian is also a fighter but appeared as an Undertaker duplicate in a few games in 1994.
When Mark the real Undertaker returned, he struck a fight in the ring demanding his identity back.
