Stars of American, Canadian and Indian cinema come together in new crossover film Speedy Singhs - and several of them gathered on stage in London for a press launch ahead of its UK release tomorrow (September 30).

Comedian Russell Peters and screen debutant Vinay Virmani joined fellow cast and crew members including comic/actor Gurpreet 'Ghuggi' Singh and co-producer Ajay Virmani as they addressed the audience and conducted a Q&A session.

Russell Peters and Vinay Virmani are pictured above at the event in London and (below) with Gurpreet Singh. A number of other photographs from the event are included below.

Peters said: "I always worry about what people will think of my films but I Lol'd when I saw this and I also got teary-eyed when I saw the film at the Toronto International Film Festival, where it premiered. The film is shot, directed and cut extremely well."

Anupam Kher talks about the International film Breakaway aka Speedy Singhs!

25 September 2011 7:33 PM, PDT | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

Mr. Anupam Kher is a Bollywood legend. His filmography includes over 450 Indian films as well as roles in the UK, Hollywood, and even China. For instance, we all remember his fabulous performances in Gurinder Chadha’s Bend it Like Beckham and Bride and Prejudice. We have seen him in the Hollywood film, The Other End of the Line, and in the Chinese film Lust, Caution. Lucky for us, Mr. Kher’s illustrious career is still going strong with several Indian film releases and a new international project Breakaway aka Speedy Singhs. With Breakaway, he was part of a new experience because the film was Canadian/Indian/Hollywood production. It was filmed in Canada, produced by India’s Akshay Kumar, and directed by Hollywood’s Robert Lieberman and stars actors from Hollywood, India, UK and Canada.

Breakaway is a cross-cultural hockey drama set in the Indo-Canadian community of Toronto. It tells the story of Rajveer Singh, »

Ludacris teams up with Bollywood Superstar to bring us Speedy Singh

16 September 2011 10:00 AM, PDT | | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Hindi film cinema has been yearning for that cross over hit for quite a while and rap-fused bhangra tracks have been a part of the promotional arsenal of every recent Akshay Kumar release starting from Singh Is King (where he rapped alongside Snoop Dogg wearing a horrible fake beard).

Although producing and not starring, this time, Speedy Singh (also known as Breakaway in outside of UK and India) seems to be a mish mash of underdog sports films like Mighty Ducks (the director helmed the 3rd part of the franchise) and cultural identity conundrums of Bend It Like Beckham set in the world of Canadian Ice Hockey.

This time Akshay Kumar ropes in Ludacris and Drake for some cameos on the soundtrack and appearances in the movie.

Here is the video clip of Shera Di Kaum which features a lot of slow motion strutting and rap posturing in front of »
