Just while we were wondering it’s been quite a while since Akshay Kumar announced his next film, here comes the actor dropping a bomb.
Akshay today took to his social media handles to announce his next film titled ‘Bachchan Pandey’ and shared his character look from the film.Akshay will star in Farhad Samji’s ‘Bachchan Pandey’which will be backed by Sajid Nadiadwala.
Reportedly, the film will be a masala entertainer, ‘Rowdy Rathore’ type. The actor shared quite an intriguing first look of his character. Sharing the poster, Akshay captioned, “Coming on Christmas 2020! In & As #BachchanPandey 😎 In #SajidNadiadwala’s Next, directed by @farhadsamji”
Interestingly, Akshay’s character in the 2008 film ‘Tashan’ starring him alongside Anil Kapoor, Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor in the lead roles was also named ‘Bachchan Pandey’. We wonder whether this has anything to do with his latest film.
Akshay recently wrapped up the fourth installment of his popular comedy franchise ‘Housefull 4’ which is also helmed by Farhad Samji. The actor will reportedly croon to a rap song in the film after being convinced by the director to do so.
As per reports, Akki and Farhad were also planning another film titled ‘LOL: Land of Lungi’, however, that film is not happening with Khiladi Kumar.
Akshay is currently busy promoting his upcoming film ‘, Mission Mangal’ which is all set to hit the theatres this Independence Day. The film also stars Vidya Balan, Taapsee Pannu, Sonakshi Sinha, Sharman Joshi, Kirti Kulhari, Nithya Menen and HR Dattatrey in the lead roles.
Apart from ‘Mission Mangal’, Akshay is currently shooting for Rohit Shetty’s cop drama ‘Sooryavanshi’ co-starring Katrina Kaif. He will be next seen in Raj Mehta’s ‘Good News’, ‘Housefull 4’ and also feature in Raghava Lawrence’s ‘Laxmmi Bomb’.
