Akshay Kumar's film 'Waqt - The Race Against Time' (2005) starring Amitabh Bachchan, Shefali Shah and Priyanka Chopra won several hearts and struck an emotional chord with many. The film's plot was similar to Akshay's real life back then. In an interview with Rajeev Masand, the actor revealed why his film 'Waqt - The Race Against Time' will be etched in his heart forever.

Akshay Kumar said that his father, Hari Om Bhatia was suffering from cancer while in the film, his onscreen father, Amitabh Bachchan's character also suffered from the illness. "That time even my father had cancer. And in the film, Mr Bachchan's character also had cancer. If you see those scenes, they are real. It was a very hard film for me emotionally. There were so many times when the scene was over but I couldn't stop my emotions. Which is why this film will always be in my memory," said the 51-year-old actor.
