The fact that Akshay Kumar is doing Its Entertainment with Tamannaah Bhatia is old news. However not many may be aware that Farhad-Sajid, the director duo of this work has worked extensively with Ajay Devgn, and several industrywallahs thought that the Golmaal actor will star as a lead in their debut film.

However, the Chennai Express writers proved everyone wrong by casting Akki in their film. At the trailer launch of Its Entertainment, Farhad-Sajid clarified their reasons to cast Khiladi Kumar in their maiden directorial venture. “It’s not that we haven’t worked with Akshay Sir as well, we have done Housefull 2 and Boss with him. Also, the role suited him perfectly. So there was no other reason to not cast Ajay Devgan in the film.”

Famous animal rights activist and politician Maneka Gandhi has also associated herself with the film and has confirmed that she has no problem since the dog in the movie was treated very well. With rave reviews on the film’s trailer and support from Mrs Gandhi, we are sure that the slapstick comedy will entertain everyone in the country as well as abroad.
