Abhishek Bachchan loses film to Akshay Kumar
The Players actor will not act in Neeraj Pandey’s Special Chabbis. Akshay Kumar pairs with Kajal Aggarwal in it
Mastermind. That’s what it boiled down to in the case of A Wednesday director Neeraj Pandey. It’s been four long years since A Wednesday and Pandey was about to find the perfect cast for his next directorial venture Special Chabbis. The subject matter is pretty interesting, being based on a jewellery shop robbery that happened in Mumbai in 1987, where a man posing as a CBI officer masterminded a bold, audacious and stunning heist in broad daylight. Initially, Abhishek Bachchan was pencilled in to play the mastermind, but then Pandey must have looked at some of his career choices like Players, Game and Khelein Hum Jee Jaan Sey and changed his mind. It doesn’t take a mastermind to figure out that currently Bachchan junior is box office poison. However, the chosen replacement also beggars belief. Akshay Kumar may have tasted marginally better success as an actor but he is on the wane as well. Indeed, rumours are rife that he is going to hang up his acting boots for good and concentrate on producing. Given the failure of Speedy Singhs, Cineswami isn’t sure if that’s a good move. The rest of the cast includes Anupam Kher, Kajal Aggarwal, Manoj Bajpayee and Jimmy Shergill. Kumar Mangat and Viacom18 are producing. Click here to read more
