As Akshay Kumar-starrer Khiladi clocked 28 years on Friday, filmmaker duo Abbas-Mustan shared a throwback picture with the Bollywood star, remembering their 1992 hit action thriller.
The 1992 film marked Akshay and Abbas-Mustan's first project together and because of his incredible performance in the film, the actor got the title "Khiladi" in Bollywood.
Sharing a throwback picture from the sets of the film, the director duo wrote on their official Twitter account: "Dear Akshay Kumar, today it is 28 years since the release of Khiladi, our first film together. Feeling nostalgic. Remembering the entire team, especially Johnny Lever bhai."
Re-tweeting the picture, Akshay called it "a stepping stone" in his career and wrote: "How can I forget Abbas Mustan bhai? It's not just a film for me but a stepping stone in my career, a title which is now synonymous with me. Thank you for giving me #Khiladi."
