Akshay Kumar ropes in Rob Lowe for 'Breakaway'

With the decision of co-producing the Indo-Canadian film 'Breakaway', Akshay Kumar gets himself a step closer to sealing his longstanding bond with Canadian culture and his evergreen passion –sports.

Crafted by acclaimed director Robert Lieberman Breakaway is a cross-cultural hockey drama set in the Indo-Canadian community of suburban Toronto, Canada. The film follows a hero caught between a family’s traditional expectations and a dream to make it in the national sport of his adopted country.

Making sure that he leaves no stones unturned in ensuring that his project has the best of both worlds Akshay Kumar has roped in American actor Rob Lowe of The Outsiders and Square Dance fame.

Says a source “Akshay was impressed with Lowe’s work on the sitcom 'Brothers and Sisters' and thought that he would be apt to play the role of an ice hockey champ.”

Akshay Kumar says, “The film expresses in a wonderful way the crossing of two great cultures, it has a brilliant International cast and crew, and I really feel this will touch a lot of hearts in Hollywood…”

'Breakaway' begins principle photography on Monday, September 20, 2010 and is scheduled to launch in the fall of 2011 by Alliance Films in Canada and Hari Om Entertainment in India.
