Akshay Kumar to reunite with 'Mission Mangal' director Jagan Shakti?
As usual, Akshay Kumar remains super busy on the work front. The actor has reportedly signed yet another project, where he will join hands with filmmaker Jagan Shakti, who has earlier directed the 2019 movie Mission Mangal. The new film will be produced by Akshay and it will go on floors by the end of next year. Here are more details on this.
"Akshay Kumar's banner Cape of Good Films has signed Jagan Shakti as director for the film. The film will go on floors by the end of 2021 and will release in 2022," a source told Bollywood Hungama. The film is currently being written, and the makers plan to wrap up shooting in a span of 38 days, the source added.
Released in 2019, Mission Mangal, starring Akshay, Vidya Balan, Tapsee Pannu, Sonakshi Sinha, and others, had garnered appreciation from critics as well as the audience. It was a science-fiction drama movie, revolving around India's ambitious Mars Orbiter Mission, also called MOM. The movie also turned out to be a hit at the worldwide box office.
Akshay has a packed schedule with several exciting projects lined up. The actor, who recently wrapped up shooting for Bell Bottom, is all set to begin the shoot of his upcoming movie Bachchan Pandey in January 2021. He will be joined by actors such as Kriti Sanon, Jacqueline Fernandez, and Arshad Warsi for the film.
Akshay, who most recently starred in the horror-comedy Laxmii, has a number of projects in the pipeline. Apart from his action movie Sooryavanshi, fans will get to see Akshay in Bell Bottom, Ram Setu, and Raksha Bandhan. He will also star in Yash Raj Films' period film Prithviraj and Aanand L Rai's Atrangi Re.
