Akshay Kumar-Rakul Preet Singh To Feature As Romantic Pair For Ranjit Tiwari’s Next
Jackky Bhagnani has teamed up with Bell Bottom director Ranjit Tiwari for a new project. Reportedly, Akshay Kumar and Rakul Preet Singh have bagged the lead roles in this film.
Throughout this last decade, Akshay Kumar has dominated Bollywood with a plethora of interesting projects under his name. Every director-producer is keen on signing the actor and thus Akki ends up doing 3-4 films every year. And now, it seems that actor-producer Jackky Bhagnani is quite impressed with Akshay. After producing Bell Bottom, Jackky has signed Akshay for another project which will be helmed by Ranjit Tiwari. Reportedly, actress Rakul Preet Singh has been roped in to play the female lead.
According to the latest reports, Jackky had approached Akshay Kumar with three film scripts. While Akshay had loved two of them, he has now given a final nod to the script which will be helmed by Bell Bottom director Ranjit Tiwari. Akshay shares a good rapport with Tiwari as they have recently worked together for the film ‘Bell Bottom’. The actor has confirmed the dates and reportedly the film will go on floors this year itself.
The makers have planned a 35-40 days schedule to wrap up the complete project. Considering the female lead, the team was planning to go ahead with Shraddha Kapoor or Kiara Advani. However, they seemed impressed by Rakul Preet’s performance alongside Ajay Devgn in the film ‘De De Pyaar De’. Thus, they decided to cast her opposite Akshay in this new project.
“They (the makers) feel the chemistry Rakul had with Ajay Devgn doesn’t look awkward on screen despite the age difference and she would be a complete fit for this role as well,” a source close to the film revealed. Well, it would be interesting to see if Akshay and Rakul’s chemistry will be loved by the masses. Talking more about the film, it will be another “inspiring” drama and might have a 2022 release.
On the work front, Akshay Kumar will be next seen in Bell Bottom which is scheduled to release on July 27, 2021. And Rakul Preet Singh is busy working on MayDay alongside Amitabh Bachchan and Ajay Devgn.
