MUMBAI — Actor Akshay Kumar says his forthcoming film “Singh Is Bling,” in which he plays a Sikh character, is not a sequel to his past movie “Singh Is Kinng.”

“You have seen me as a ‘sardaar’ in many films, whether it be ‘Namastey London’ or ‘Singh Is Kinng’, but it (‘Singh Is Bling’) is not a sequel of ‘Singh Is Kinng.’ It is absolutely different from that,” the actor said here Aug. 19 at the trailer launch of “Singh Is Bling.”

The trailer was launched here with much fanfare, with Kumar making a grand entry on a tractor along with director Prabhu Deva and co-star Amy Jackson.

Talking about the film, Kumar further said: “It’s a very funny story and has a bit of emotions too. If you all remember, Prabhu Deva and I did a film called ‘Rowdy Rathore.’ This film belongs to that genre. I hope you guys enjoy it as much as I have enjoyed working on it.”

Produced by Grazing Goat Pictures, “Singh Is Bling” also features Kay Kay Menon and Lara Dutta. It is slated to release Oct. 2.
