Akshay Kumar’s chemistry with Kriti Sanon in Housefull 4 was widely appreciated, so much so, that it looks like the two are all set to reunite for the former’s upcoming film, Bachchan Pandey. As per a report in Pinkvilla, the film’s director Farhad Samji, who worked with Kriti in Housefull 4, liked her professional attitude and dedication towards work and offered her the lead role in Bachchan Pandey as well. The report added that quite a few actresses were trying to bag the part; however, Kriti topped the list and an official announcement to be made soon.
A source close to the film’s development told to the portal, “Unlike other masala films, the female lead has an important part to play in Bachchan Pandey. Kriti is also learning a particular dialect that suits the South Indian character that she's going to play in the project. Along with Akshay, she also has a few action scenes so the team needed someone good with action and acting equally." As per them, Bachchan Pandey is expected to go on floors sometime in February next year.
On the work front, Akshay Kumar has quite an interesting lineup of films. He will be seen in Karan Johar’s Good Newwz, followed by Raghava Lawrence’s Laxmmi Bomb, Rohit Shetty’s Sooryavanshi and YRF’s Prithviraj Chauhan. Kriti Sanon, on the other hand, will be seen in Ashutosh Gowariker’s Panipat and Dinesh Vijan’s Mimi, the shooting for which is underway in Rajasthan. We now wait for an official announcement from the makers!
