Mumbai: Enthused about his forthcoming film ‘Players’, which is a remake of the 2003 American thriller `the Italian Job`, actor Abhishek Bachchan today said the flick was a quintessential "masala" movie.

“The trailer (of ‘Players’) does not remind you of ‘the Italian Job’, it promises a ‘masala’ Hindi movie. This is an exciting time in my life,” Abhishek said.

Referring to the first trailer of the flick unveiled last week, Abhishek said, “it left his blood pumping”. “One of the reasons I accepted the film was for the directors Abbas-Mustaan. And the other being I had grown up watching and loving the original film. I still remember Michael Caine’s (he was the lead actor in the 1969 original film –‘The Italian Job’) lines,” Abhishek said.

‘Players’, directed by Abbas Mustaan, also features Sonam Kapoor, Bipasha Basu, Bobby Deol and Omi Vaidya, and is slated for release on January 6.
