Akshay Kumar has always been Bollywood’s busiest actor and one who has remained the same regardless of all the successes and some failures. We recently revealed that Khiladi is making an Air Force based action thriller with Dinesh Vijan’s Maddock Entertainment. And now we have another exclusive update on Akshay. According to our sources, Akshay has boarded the next comedic entertainer from director Mudassar Aziz, named Khel Khel Mein.
“It’s a topic that Mudassar has been discussing with Akshay for a while, taking the place of a thoroughly comedic entertainer. Akshay also liked the topic and lit it green. The film will be produced by Bhushan Kumar and Ashwin Varde , but the timelines of the shooting are not yet known,” revealed a source close to the development, adding beyond the paperwork and all other formalities already done.
Akshay is very excited about the subject and as the title suggests, this is going to be a very quirky ride, with AK returning to his zone of comedic entertainers. “The dates and everything will be arranged soon,” the source said. Mudassar now has two topics ready, Khel Khel Mein with Akshay Kumar and Meri Patni Ka Remake with Arjun Kapoor and Bhumi Pednekar. “We are still awaiting an update on the shooting timelines for both films. While the Arjun Kapoor starrer is being produced by the Bhagnanis, Akshay’s comedy is being funded by Bhushan & Ashwin,” the source added. Akshay is doing another film for Ashwin Varde, OMG: Oh My God 2, which has already been shot and is gearing up for release in early 2023.
Akshay is currently preparing for the release of Raksha Bandhan on August 11 and will follow up with Ram Setu on Diwali. He also has Cinderella in his cat in addition to Selfie, although the release date of both films is yet to be announced. Stay tuned to Pinkvilla for more updates on Akshay.
