Today, it was announced that Akshay Kumar and Emraan Hashmi will be seen together in a movie titled Selfiee. The film will be produced by Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions and it will be directed by Raj Mehta. Selfiee is a remake of the Malayalam movie Driving License which starred Prithviraj Sukumaran and Suraj Venjaramoodu in the lead roles. While Akshay will step into the shoes of Prithviraj, Emraan will portray the character Suraj played. Well, everyone is excited to watch Akshay and Emraan on the big screen together for the first time. But do you know that both the actors have been a part of a franchise earlier?
Let’s go back to 2010. Ajay Devgn, Emraan Hashmi, Kangana Ranaut, and Prachi Desai starred in a film titled Once Upon a Time in Mumbaai. Emraan played the role of an upcoming gangster named Shoaib Khan. The Milan Luthria directorial was a super hit at the box office, so the makers decided to make it a franchise.
In 2013, a sequel to the film titled Once Upon ay Time in Mumbai Dobaara was released. In the second installment, the makers showed the older version of Shoaib and Akshay Kumar played the role in the movie.
So, Akshay and Emraan played the same characters in the franchise. While Emraan was seen as the young Shoaib, Akshay was roped in to play the older version of the character.
Talking about Selfiee, the movie will reportedly start rolling by end of this month or early February. Well, moviegoers are now waiting to know which actresses will be roped in to play female leads in the film.
Selfiee will be Akshay and director Raj Mehta’s second collaboration. The direct-actor duo have earlier worked together in the 2019 release Good Newwz which was a super hit at the box office.
