Is Akshay Kumar teaming up with Priyadarshan for his next film?
We heard that the ace director is making a comeback after making movies in the south and with the rumour that Rustom actor is going to make a film with him.
It looks like Akshay has not still signed a film with him.
Akshay, wrapped up Jolly LLB 2 shoot, with some shooting in Manali and has three movies lined up.
He will be seen in a cameo role in Taapsee Pannu-starrer Naam Shabana. He will be off to Malaysia soon to shoot the film. After that there are two Neeraj Pandey’s films lined up: Crack, which is to be released during Independence day weekend next year, and Toilet — Ek Prem Katha.
“Akshay is certainly not doing ‘Ikka’ with A R Murugadoss, nor has he signed the Priyadarshan film. These are just baseless rumours,” a source said.
In the past, the Khiladi actor and Priyadarshan had delivered many hits including Hera Pheri, Garam Masala, Bhagam Bhaag, Bhool Bhulaiyaa and De Dana Dan.
Earlier it was said that Priyadarshan’s film would see Akshay as a fun-loving Punjabi man. Rumour had it that Rohit Shetty would produce the film, which would also see Paresh Rawal in a key role.
The shooting of the film was said to begin in April next year, it was also reported that the film would be shot in Mumbai and Punjab.
“Akshay will play a loud, fun-loving Punjabi character in Rohit’s production. The shooting will start from April next year and take place in Mumbai and Punjab. Paresh has been busy with politics ever since he won the Lok Sabha ticket for the BJP and has done very few films, but he and Priyan are friends, so the actor is making time for this film. He plays a pivotal role in the film,” a source said. – CINEWS
