The film’s trailer, which released online on Wednesday, gave a sneak peek into the action packed thriller that also stars Sonakshi Sinha.

"...It’s the first time that I am playing a DIA, a role I have enjoyed portraying more than I ever imagined,” Akshay said in a statement.

“The next time someone asks me what I would have done if I weren't an actor, I would say that being a DIA is on the top of my list,” he added.

The action-thriller has been directed by A.R. Murugadoss and produced by Vipul Shah.

"To work alongside my long time friend Vipul after so many extraordinary films together, on a project that is helmed by Murugadoss, is of course something I couldn't wait to get my hands on," said Akshay, who teamed up with Shah for super hits like ‘Waqt - Race against Time’ and ‘Namastey London’ in the past.
Murugadoss, who has directed southern films like ‘Thuppakki’ and ‘Stalin’, was a little apprehensive before he took on the film.

"I was a little reserved initially but Akshay made me feel comfortable. Now, I can say that I have got a close friend in the Hindi film industry," said Murugadoss.

The director also Vipul praised Shah for his support.  “Being a filmmaker, Vipul sir lends his directors great support,” he said. The film will hit theatres on June 6.
