Actor Hrithik Roshan, whose Mohenjo Daro is set to clash with Rustom on the box office on August 12, tweeted:
The trailer made actor Ajay Devgn take a second look at it, while filmmaker Karan Johar found it "supremely intriguing".
The over three minute-long trailer shows Akshay clad in a crisp white uniform, sporting a moustache, while actress Ileana D'Cruz, as Akshay's love interest in the film, shines in bold coloured lipsticks and a vintage look.
Here's what the celebrities had to say:
