A sequel to the 2010 film Once Upon a Time in Mumbaai, the film stars Akshay Kumar, Sonakshi Sinha and Imran Khan in leading roles and Sonali Bendre in a supporting role.
The first trailer of the film was released on 28 May 2013.The film, on the other hand, released on 15 August 2013 to coincide with the national holiday on the eve of Independence Day in India. The release date of the film was pushed further by the producers to avoid clashing with Rohit Shetty's film Chennai Express, which released on 9 August 2013. This is the third collaboration between Akshay Kumar and Sonakshi Sinha as a pair (after 2012 films Rowdy Rathore and Joker), and the first between Sonakshi Sinha and Imran Khan.
Upon release, however, the film received mixed to negative reviews. It also failed to perform well at the box office, being declared a "Flop" by Box Office India.
