While some fans simply laughed out loud at the hilarious exchange, others cheered him on and expressed their excitement to see the two actually wrestle it out in the ring.
In his 1996 hit film ‘Khiladiyon Ka Khiladi‘, Akshay fought a doppelganger of the veteran American wrestler Mark William Calaway, popularly known as The Undertaker. Many people assumed that the real Undertaker had made his Bollywood debut opposite Akshay but it was wrestler Brian Lee who essayed the role instead.
Recalling the particular fighting scene, Akshay shared a hilarious meme on his Instagram account, “Raise your hand if you have defeated The Undertaker,” the meme read.
However, Akshay clarified, “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.”
Akshay’s post not only left fans in splits but also had his fellow B-town stars reacting to the picture. “Last man standing,” actor Varun Dhawan commented, while Ayushmann Khurrana simply said, “Wow!”
‘Khiladiyon Ka Khiladi’which completed 25 years, also starred actors Rekha and Raveena Tandon in the lead roles.
