Akshay Kumar to be possessed with a transgender ghost in Kanchana 2 remake

Akshay Kumar is the only actor in Bollywood who delivers at least 3-4 superhits films in Bollywood in a year. The actor is loaded with projects these days and going by the choice of film he has been doing lately, the actor is experimenting with the number of roles he is taking up. The audience already knows that Akshay Kumar will be seen in the remake of Tamil blockbuster Kanchana 2 along with his Good News co-star Kiara Advani and now, the latest reports suggest that unlike the original film, he will eb possessed by one ghost in the film. 

While the original film directed by Raghava Lawrence saw a man who is easily scared of ghosts, for the Hindi remake makers have made changes to the script and Akshay’s character will be a fearless man who does not believe in ghosts. A Mid Day report quoted a source as saying, “While the premise remains the same, Akshay’s character has been chalked out as one who doesn’t fear the supernatural. The makers also reworked the narrative to create a meaty role for Kiara Advani, who plays Akshay’s wife. In the original film, the hero’s mother and sister-in-law have pivotal parts. In the Hindi counterpart, the sequence where Akshay’s character is possessed by a ghost - the turning point in the story - will take place at Kiara’s house. Her character will play a crucial role in his exorcism. Finally, Akshay will be possessed by one ghost - that of the transgender, Laxmi - and not three ghosts as seen in the Tamil movie.”

The movie will be directed by Raghava Lawrence who has also helmed the original. Kanchana, which released in 2011 had Sarathkumar in lead role along with Raghava Lawrence, Lakshmi Rai, Kovai Sarala, Devadarshini and Sriman in important characters.

Meanwhile, Akshay and Kiara along with their co-stars announced wrap and release date of Good News with a quirky video. Akshay shared a clip on Instagram in which he along with Kareena, Kiara and Diljit are lip syncing siren sound. The Kesari actor captioned the video, ''Practicing the sound of #GoodNews arriving until then it’s a wrap Due date 6th September 2019!''
