In his next film Patiala House, Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar will be seen essaying a role which has been inspired by England cricket team's Sikh member Monty Singh Panesar.

Panesar is the first Sikh to join England cricket team and the spinner is a crowd favourite. Panesar's parents migrated there from Punjab.

In Patiala House, Akshay will be seen as Parghat Singh Kahlon, a British citizen whose dream is to be a pace bowler.

The film is being directed by Nikhil Advani and also stars Anushka Sharma, Rishi Kapoor and Dimple Kapadia. It is slated to release in Feb next year.
