Akshay Kumar has recently announced his upcoming movie, Bachchan Pandey. The film is directed by Farhad Samaji and it is being produced by Sajid Nadiadwala.
It was earlier said that Kriti Sanon would be cast opposite Akshay, but now it is heard that the makers are also discussing the name of Tamanna Bhatia.
This film is a remake of South’s hit film Veeram, in which female lead character is very important. Tamanna’s name is now being considered for the role. Tamanna played the female lead role in the original film. Sources, however, say that Kriti’s name is more likely to be finalized. She has already worked with Farhad and Sajid. However, the final decision is yet to be taken.
Although it was being said that Bachchan Pandey & Land Of Lungi both are different films by Nadiadwala & Grandson Entertainment, but the recent reports suggest that the film is indeed a remake of Tamil film Veeram, and Land Of Lungi was also supposed to be the remake of that film only.
Bachchan Pandey will be directed Farhad Samji who has earlier worked as a director with Akshay in Entertainment and Housefull 4. He has also written the dialogues for Sooryavanshi which brings Akshay & Katrina Kaif back together after a long time and is being directed by Rohit Shetty.
