Akshay Kumar seems tired of doing masala capers. The actor is teaming up again with Neeraj Pandey of Special 26 fame and the movie is learnt to be loosely based on Ben Affleck's Academy Award winning Hollywood film Argo.
Seeking inspiration from Hollywood movies is nothing new in Bollywood. Ben Affleck's movie Argo was an edge-of-the-seat political thriller, and Neeraj Pandey may just take inspiration from the movie for his next, reports a tabloid.
Neeraj Pandey's Special 26 with Akshay Kumar was critically acclaimed and also did good business at the box office, and the director was keen to make another thriller with Akki.
Sources claim that the yet-untitled movie has already gone on the floors. “Shooting for the film has already started. This film is expected to release next year in January,” a source is quoted as saying.
Apparently, the director has also finalized the leading lady for the flick, and for the first time Akshay will be seen opposite the Chashme Baddoor actress Taapsee Pannu. The dimpled lassie is cast to play an undercover agent along with Akki. This will be Taapsee Pannu’s second Bollywood film.
