Police officer Anant Srivastav (Amitabh Bachchan) has been assigned the job of escorting the world's most dangerous terrorist, Iqbal Ansari (Ajay Devgan) from Chandargadh to Mumbai.

An earlier mission failed miserably due to an ambush halfway to Mumbai.

Fortunately Ansari was not allowed to escape due to the efforts of the brave police officers.

Now another team is being sent to carry out the same mission under the watchful eye of Anant Srivastav.

To carry out his mission, Anant is aided by two armed cops - Inspectors Shekhar Sachdev (Akshay Kumar) and Ashwini Gupte (Tusshar Kapoor).

Shekhar is a street smart character rotten to the core.

An unscrupulous officer who does not care what is right or wrong, Shekhar did not want to be part of this mission. He was forced into it.

Ashwin on the other hand is a young middle class guy on his first serious assignment.

Full of ambitions and good intentions, little does he realise that they are all about to be shattered.

As their journey progresses towards Mumbai, Ashwin learns the hard way, that there is a big difference between training school and real life police force.

All three of these characters accompany Iqbal Ansari who is an important key witness to a case.

But there is someone out there who will not let them reach their final destination. . .

The unseen enemy who lurks in the shadows is always a step ahead… So will these Khakee clad men be successful in their venture? Watch Khakee when it releases.

For Amitabh Bachchan, Khakee comes at a time when he is still celebrating the box office success of Baghban.

We now eagerly wait to see the same acting calibre once again in this police orientated action flick.

Ajay Devgan has played the loyal police officer in recent releases Gangaajal and Zameen. But in Khakee, we will see him in a very different role.

Palying the role of a police officer is nothing new for Akshay Kumar. The difference here is that he will be sharing the screen presence with Bollywood queen Aishwarya Rai.

Tusshar finally gets a chance to get away from those love orientated flicks. He gets a chance to play cop for the first time on screen.

Like most of his films, director Raj Kumar Santoshi's has been filmed on a large budget with no expenses spared.

It is slated for a 26th December 2003 release by EROS International in the UK.
