The movie has Akshay Kumar playing Captain Virat, an officer of the Indian army. He’s off duty and on a holiday to enjoy time with his family in Mumbai. He woos a pretty Sonakshi Sinha who wants to punch him black and blue initially but eventually gives into to his advances.
But there are secrets that Virat is keeping. In reality he is a DIA (Defence Intelligence Agent), a secret not even known to his family. This DIA agent is never off duty, even when holidaying. So when danger lurks over Mumbai in the form of sleeper terrorist cells, Virat leads the mission to wipe out the threat.
“Tum log parivar ke saath yahan chain se jiyo isliye hum log roz border par marte hain,” Akshay Kumar tells a baddie about to blow his own brains off.
The sleeper cells become active, and take innocent civilians hostage. Huge odds are stacked against Virat and his unit. Will they prevail?
A remake of the Tamil blockbuster ‘Thupakki’ Holiday is directed by A.R. Murugadoss and produced by Vipul Amrutlal Shah, Reliance Entertainment and Aruna Bhatia. The story is written by Murugadoss while the music is composed by Pritam.
Holiday is set to release on June 6.
