This would be Akshay`s fourth release this year after the hit `Holiday`, a cameo in ` Fugly` and the upcoming masala flick `Entertainment`. The central characters in the movie are the three lecherous oldies though, played by Annu Kapoor and Piyush Mishra with Kher. `The Shaukeens` is being helmed by Abhishek Sharma.
With the date set, it seems that it will clash with Ajay Devgn`s `Action Jackson`. We will just have to wait and watch.
