Akshay Kumar to Star in new Movie by Divya Khosla Kumar
Akshay Kumar has been on a roll lately. The actor has been signing up one movie after another. His recent movies Airlift and Housefull 3 were a huge hit and Bollywood fans are eagerly waiting for his up coming movies –Rustom and Hera Pheri 3, which are sure to be box-office hits.
The buzz is that Akshay is currently shooting for Jolly LLB 2 –Subhash Kapoor’s sequel of Jolly LLB. In an interview with the Catch News, Akshay Kumar expressed, “Jolly LLB 2 is a nice script and I quite liked it. I really liked the director’s work and I have never played a lawyer’s role ever. It is something that I am going to enjoy”.
The word is out that Akki has now signed the movie Sanam Re with director Divya Khosla Kumar. Akshay has been signed up for a humongous amount of Rs. 56 crore. The shooting is scheduled to begin mid-September, after Akshay is done with shooting for Jolly LLB 2.
Interestingly enough, Divya’s spokesperson had denied the ‘rumours’ of Divya approaching Akshay Kumar for her next movie. He reportedly said: “There is no truth to this. Divya is currently on a much-needed break and has not signed any actor for her next film. Divya is presently in the development process for her next film and discussions on casting are still some time away.” Perhaps by ‘some time’, he meant a few weeks.
Given Akshay Kumar and Divya Khosla Kumar’s years old friendship, Akshay didn’t hesitate to sign up for the movie. However, the lead actress for Divya’s Sanam Re has not been chosen yet.
At the moment, Akshay is busy promoting his up coming movie Rustom, the trailer for which has kept the audience eagerly waiting for it’s release. The movie is due for release on 12 August 2016.
