For, the last few years have witnessed an upswing in the popularity of this model-turned-actress thanks to success of 'Namastey London', Partner , Apne , Race and 'Welcome'.

Trade sources said the strong curiosity surrounding the film is in large part due to the fact that it features the hit pair of Akshay and Katrina, who teamed up in two of last year's biggest hits - 'Namastey London' and 'Welcome'.

Shot in Punjab, Australia and Egypt, the movie has generated tremendous interest in film circles due to its music, which has already climbed popularity charts across India.
