Akshay Kumar stars in 'Once Upon A Time In Mumbai' slated for Eid

Mumbai: Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar said the festival of Eid was big enough to accommodate two films, SRK's 'Chennai Express' and his 'Once Upon a Time in Mumbai Again'.

The actor was accompanied by the star cast of the film, Imran Khan, Sonakshi Sinha and director Milan Luthria.
