Akshay Kumar to do writer duo Sajid-Farhad’s debut film
The Khiladi has agreed to do his buddies’ debut directorial flick
Akshay Kumar is all set to take his association with his successful writer friends, Sajid and Farhad, to a new level. Akki, whose Special 26 opened to rave reviews, will play the lead role in the untitled film, to be produced by top line producer Ramesh Taurani.
While every other writer in Bollywood claims of writing scripts that are different, B-town’s leading writer-duo, Sajid-Farhad admits of not doing anything out-of-the-box but has still delivered five Rs 100 crore films – Golmaal 3, Singham, Ready, Housefull 2 and Bol Bachchan in a very short span of time.
Confirming the development, Taurani said, “Yes, we have signed Akshay to play the lead role in the film, while it has been written and will be directed by Sajid and Farhad. Both of them have proved themselves with five Rs 100 crore films. I’m very happy to sign them as directors. However, we have yet to finalise the female lead for the film. The film will be an all out entertainer and it will go on floors this June.”
We hope the talented writer duo get to see a ‘housefull’ board with their debut attempt. All the best, Sajid-Farhad!
