Akshay Kumar’s film to have ‘Skyfall’ action director
Once a khiladi, always a khiladi! Even though audiences love watching Akshay Kumar in comedy films, the Khiladi Kumar certainly enjoys doing more actioners. After the super success of Rowdy Rathore, the actor has again given his nod to a remake of a Tamil action film, and the makers of the movie have roped in the action director of Hollywood film Skyfall, Greg Powell, to direct action scenes.

The film is tentatively titled Pistol, and it’s the remake of Tamil thriller Thuppakki (2012), starring Tamil star Vijay. The Ghajini director AR Murugadoss has directed the south version, and he will also helm the Hindi remake.

Greg Powell has already landed in India for the film, and while talking to a daily sang the praises of Akshay Kumar. “Akshay is extremely enthusiastic about trying out new things. He rehearses a lot and is very, very fast. His skills are really good,” the action director is quoted as saying.

Greg, who is looking forward to his next Hollywood release, Fast & Furious 6, also feels that Akshay Kumar’s love for fitness makes things easier for him. He is also glad to see the actor practising his stunts before finally performing them.

Thuppakki remake is produced by Vipul Shah. Akshay and Vipul have earlier teamed up for films like Aankhen, Namastey London, Waqt: The Race Against Time, Singh Is Kinng and Action Replayy. The producer and actor are good friends and share a very cordial professional relationship. Thuppakki remake is their first full-on action film, and by roping in a Hollywood action director they have ensured that the movie features spectacular, sleek action.
