Earlier this year, Akshay Kumar shared the first look of the film with a poster shared on Instagram. the Khiladi Kumar looked like his usual rager self wearing a black dhoti with gold border. His choice of accessories included multiple heavy gold chains, a nunchuck in his hand and forehead smeared with white and red tilak and vibhuti. The fans couldn’t stop gushing over Akshay Kumar’s tough look.
Helmed by Farhad Samji, ‘Bachchan Pandey’ is the official Bollywood remake of 2014 Tamil-flick ‘Veeram’ that starred Tamannah and Ajith in the leading roles. The film is set to go on floors in February 2020.
While the Christmas 2020 release has been confirmed for ‘Bachchan Pandey’, chances are that there might be a slight change in the release dates. This is because perfectionist Aamir khan’s ‘Laal Singh Chadha’ is also due for a Christmas 2020 release.
On the work front, Kriti is currently busy promoting her upcoming periodic drama film ‘Panipat’ with Arjun Kapoor and Sanjay Dutt. Helmed by Ashutosh Gowariker, the film is based on the story of brave Maratha warriors who fought of Afghani intruders to death. Kriti essays the role of ‘Parvati Bai’, the wife of great Peshwa Sadashiv Rao.
