Akshay Kumar has begun the shooting for his Marathi venture Vedat Marathe Veer Daudale Saat. Sharing the update on his social media account, the Khiladi of Bollywood, in Hindi, wrote, “Today I am starting the shooting of Marathi film ‘Vedat Marathe Veer Daudale Saat‘ in which I am lucky to be able to play the role of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj ji. I will do my best by taking inspiration from her life and the blessing of Mother Jijau! Keep your blessings on us.” He posted a photo of himself with folded hands before Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj's portrait.
Further, the actor shared a new video of himself dressed as the legendary Maratha warrior. In the clip, Akshay can be seen walking toward the camera, while the slogan, 'Jai Shivaji, Jai Bhavani' plays in the background. He has also captioned his post, 'Jai Bhavani, Jai Shivaji'.
Director Mahesh Manjrekar’s Marathi period drama ‘Vedat Marathe Veer Daudle Saat’ starring Akshay Kumar as Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj is produced by Vaseem Qureshi. The movie's ensemble also includes Jay Dudhane, Utkarsha Shinde, Vishal Nikam, Virat Madke, Hardik Joshi, Satya, Akshay, Nawab Khan, and Praveen Tarde.
The film is all set to release in cinemas on Diwali 2023 in Marathi, Hindi, Tamil & Telugu.
Apart from this, Akshay Kumar might be seen in Hera Pheri 3. He has been one of the main reasons that the comedy franchise Hera Pheri turned into a big success. His camaraderie with Paresh Rawal and Suniel Shetty and their spot-on comic timing won millions of hearts. While Khiladi Kumar had earlier revealed that he had rejected Hera Pheri 3 due to creative differences, it appears that he is rethinking his decision.
According to the latest reports, Firoz Nadiadwala has again approached Akshay Kumar and has agreed to make the changes in the script. A report in Pinkvilla stated, "While everything was on paper with regard to the casting of Hera Pheri 3 with Kartik Aaryan, the tides are now changing again. Over the last 10 days, Firoz has met Akshay Kumar a couple of times to sort out all the differences and get him back to the loved franchise. He realizes how iconic the character is and also acknowledges that the credit to make the character scale new heights goes to the way in which Akshay enacted the part."
