Right after the launch of a simmering poster of Akshay Kumar’s upcoming Bachchan Pandey, the film’s clash with perfectionist Aamir Khan-starrer Lal Singh Chadha has been confirmed. Bachchan Pandey is being reported to be a remake of the Tamil film Veeram that released in 2014, starring Ajith Kumar and Tamannaah. It was directed by ‘Siruthai’ Siva and went on to be a blockbuster. Akshay Kumar has earlier enjoyed success with his remakes of south Indain movies.
Bollywood’s ‘Khiladi’ Kumar, in the poster, dons a south Indian look in black lungi with golden borders. He is wearing a thick chunk of gold chains around his neck with a nunchak in his hand and three lines of vibhuti on his forehead along with a small red tilak below.
With the thick moustache and intense look on Akshay, the poster will surely leave fans eager for the film. It was shared by the actor on his Twitter with fans heaping praises in the replies. The Farhad Samji-directorial is being produced by Sajid Nadiadwala in association with NGE Movies.
Akshay was last seen in Kesari which was a period drama based on the 1897 Battle of Saragarhi, where an army of 21 Sikhs fought against 10,000 Afghans.
Continuing his patriotic film spree, the actor is currently awaiting the release of Mission Mangal which celebrates India’s Mars Orbiter Mission (MOM). This film is scheduled to hit the screens on August 15 this year. Last year too Akshay’s Gold was released on Independence Day.
