If things go as planned, actor Akshay Kumar will be seen playing Tatya Tope, the legendary hero of India's first freedom struggle, in a film.

The movie will reportedly be co-produced by the Information and Broadcasting Ministry and Bollywood producer Firoz Nadiadwala .




Vinay Shukla (of 'Godmother' fame) will direct the film.

The film's story will be set in 1857, the first Indian revolt against the colonial British. Besides Tatya Tope, other prominent figures like Rani Laxmibai of Jhansi and Nanasaheb Peshwa (Tope's good friend) will be part of the film's story.

The tale will be told from the point of view of Tatya Tope and his alliance with Rani Laxmibai and Nanasaheb.

Producer Firoz Nadiadwala, who shares an excellent working relationship with Akshay Kumar, has reportedly talked to the actor about the film. Akshay has expressed interest but has yet to sign on the dotted line.

Rumour also has it that Deepika Padukone is being considered for the part of Rani Laxmibai.

If Deepika agrees to act in the film, it would be her second film with Akshay after Chandni Chowk To China which is presently on the floors.
