Define irony- An actor, who will be seen playing a con-man, who poses as a CBI officer to dupe his victims, will be conducting a press conference to create awareness about the investigative agency as part of his film promotion!
Yes, you heard it right! Akshay Kumar, who will be next seen playing the role of a con-man named Ajay Singh in Neeraj Pandey's upcoming film Special 26, has been reportedly approached by CBI officials, who want him to create awareness about the national agency. Agreeing to this, Akshay Kumar has decided to conduct a press conference with the CBI officials, wherein he will shed light on the cases that the CBI has been involved in and to send a message across that the Bureau is always ready to help citizens in need.
Special 26 is based on real life incidents, wherein a bunch of con-men posed as CBI sleuths and robbed rich businessmen on the pretext of raids.
