Superstars Amitabh Bachchan and Akshay Kumar will soon weave their magic together on silver screen. The hit duo has been reportedly roped in for a movie to be helmed by R. Balki.
The yet to be titled project is being said be a slice-of-life movie. While Big B has worked with R. Balki in movies like ‘Shamitabh’ and ‘Cheeni Kum’, this will be the first time that Akshay Kumar will team up with him.
Reportedly, Balki met Akshay last month to discuss the movie. In fact, Akshay was his first choice for the movie, a fact that made the actor joyous.
The movie is expected to roll next year and the director has already started developing Big B’s character in the movie.
Coming back to the casting coup of this movie, there are many reasons why it is going to be amazing. The duo of Big B and Khiladi Kumar have given viewers many movies to cherish. Their rapport lights up the screen even if they are at contradicting poles in the movie.
For example in the 2002 movie ‘Aankhein’ (2002), Akshay and Big B despite being on opposite sides, upped the entertainment quotient. Similarly in Khakee (2004), Akshay played the role of an inspector whose way of working wasn’t liked by his senior Amitabh Bachchan.
The two paired in 2005 to race against time in ‘Waqt’ and left viewers sad. The chemistry the on screen father-son duo shared was the biggest highlight of the movie.
Now that the Big B and Akshay have been roped in for a feel good movie, it wouldn’t be flattering to say that their chemistry will light up the screen.
