Akshay Kumar’s meme is back to haunt him. Days after WWF star The Undertaker left the internet for his hilarious post, the actor has now challenged himself to a ‘real rematch’. Responding to the viral post, The Undertaker wrote in the comments, “Ha! Let me know when you’re ready for a real rematch!”
The real @undertaker vs @akshaykumar? Yes please! #WWE #KhiladiyonKaKhiladi https://t.co/WEdohl2bEH

Akki proved to be a true game and replied, “Let me check my insurance and come back, bro!”

While some fans laughed out loud at the hilarious exchange, others cheered and expressed their excitement to see the two actually wrestle in the ring.
In his 1996 hit ‘Khiladiyon Ka Khiladi’, Akshay fought a doppelganger of veteran American wrestler Mark William Calaway, better known as The Undertaker. Many assumed that the real Undertaker made his Bollywood debut opposite Akshay, but the role was played by wrestler Brian Lee instead.
Recalling the particular fight scene, Akshay shared a hilarious meme on his Instagram account, “Raise your hand if you have defeated The Undertaker,” the meme read. However, Akshay clarified, “A funny note on the 25th anniversary of the release of Khiladi Ka Khiladi yesterday! A fun fact though: it was wrestler Brian Lee who played The Undertaker in the film.” Akshay’s post not only left fans divided, but his fellow B-town stars also reacted to the picture. “The last man standing,” commented actor Varun Dhawan, while Ayushmann Khurrana simply said, “Wow!” Rekha and Raveena Tandon also played lead roles in ‘Khiladiyon Ka Khiladi’ which completed 25 years.
