However the teaser of the picture got widely appreciated by the fans of Akshay, but the netizens couldn’t resist noticing this huge age gap between Akshay and Manushi. While Akshay is 54-years-old, Manushi who has stepped into Bollywood after being crowned Miss World 2017, is 24 years old, 30 years younger than her male counterpart in the movie. Earlier, when Disha Patani who is 29 years old was made to romance a 55-year-old Salman Khan in ‘slow motion,’ now there is an outgoing discussion over social media that how young female actors continue to be typecast in romantic roles opposite male actors almost 30-35 years elder to them.

Another user commented, “Prithviraj Chauhan died at the age of 43, and the actor portraying him is 54. Sadly Bollywood has no actor below 50. However, Ms. Chillar, the actress portraying, Sanyogita is 24. Bollywood’s another misfortune, no actress around 50, so the kid had to do it. #Ageism rocks”
