Each time The Undertaker’s name pops up, we are reminded of his appearance in the 1996 Akshay Kumar-starrer ‘Khiladiyon Ka Khiladi’. The Undertaker appears in the introductory fight sequence of the film. He shows up numerous times and faces Akshay’s character in the ring twice. In the second and final face-off with the hero, which is the film’s climax, he gets killed.
But ‘The Undertaker’ who has retired from WWE and The Undertaker who featured in ‘Khiladiyon Ka Khiladi’ are two different people. The original ‘The Undertaker’ is a licensed WWE character, who is being played by wrestler Mark Callaway. The Undertaker of ‘Khiladiyon Ka Khiladi’ is a man named Brian Lee. He started his career as a professional wrestler in 1988 and took retirement in 2014. Once he played an ‘imposter’ version of The Undertaker in WWE. He was later discovered by Bollywood and was cast in ‘Khiladiyon Ka Khiladi’.
Meanwhile, there are rumors that The Undertaker might return to the ring. In his announcement in The Last Ride, he had said that if Vince McMahon, the CEO of WWE, was in trouble, he might consider returning to the ring. “If Vince was in a pinch, would I come back? I guess time will only tell there. In case of emergency, break glass pull out the Undertaker, I mean I would have to consider that,” he had said.
