Here is some great news, something that would not just delight his fans but also some of his critics.
Akshay Kumar, who has only been a part of comedies in the last 2 years or so, is more or less confirmed to play the lead role in Rajkumar Santoshi’s next! And no, it will not be a comedy like Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani.
According to reliable sources, Santoshi has been planning a film based on Asghar Wajahat’s play Jis Lahore Nahin Dekhya, for a long time now. And the film with the same title was reportedly offered to several actors like Salman Khan, Ajay Devgan and Sunny Deol. None were too keen on signing the film, so when Santoshi offered it to Akshay Kumar, he was more than willing to be a part of the project.
Once Akshay signs on the dotted line, the film is expected to go on floors immediately.
