Akshay Kumar in Siddharth Anand’s Action Thriller

Filmmaker Siddharth Anand who has just wrapped up the final shooting schedule of Bang Bang starring Hrithik Roshan and Katrina Kaif, has roped in Akshay Kumar for his next film.

Anand who has previously directed Saif Ali Khan and Ranbir Kapoor, felt Akshay is more suited for the role than Hrithik.

The film will be a heavy-duty action thriller and Akshay will also co-produce it. This is the first time Anand and Akshay are collaborating for a film.

According to a source, Siddharth met Akshay few days ago for a narration and the actor immediately gave his node for the film.

Confirming the news, a source close to the development reveale, “It’s a heavy-duty action thriller set across the globe. The idea was with him, even before Bang Bang went on floors. He has a great working relationship with Hrithik but felt this role is more suitable for Akshay.”

The lead actress for the film has not been finalised yet. The film will go on floors early next year.

Note: The article above should be considered a rumour until an official announcement is made.

  • Gud…Akshay has also a very gud line of films coming in next 2yrs…
    Almost evry actor has a superb slate of film coming..

    Aamir Sir just waiting 4r U…

  • how many films akshay will sign…bt this tym his line up of films is much more interesting…

  • akshay is the best action hero till date in bollywood…if siddharth will do movie with akshay it will be another blockbuster 200cr. movie…
    akshay is fit & very good actor then hritik in action movies…!!

  • I think siddhart anand is a big fan of akki…
    Why he felt that Akki is more suited for the role than Hrithik??
    I mean Hrithik is much more than Akki,Ajay,Ranbir..Hrithik movies are highly awaiting movies..His movies are classy…Akki can do Masala movies..
    I don’t like that..Why anand said that akki is more suited than Hrithik..

  • Sid anand is famous for making rom com like salam namasty or anjana anjani, he is not abbas mustan, anyway bang bang is going to be disaster

  • Akshay and sidharth anand??
    Both are average according to me..and whats up with heavy duty action? you wont get heavy collections on dat..just 60crores lol

  • @romance new year and @babaji ka thullu u were speaking nonsense about sid anand for so many months bcz he was directing a hrithik roshan film.acc to u even a hit like salam namaste was a b.o. failure.but since sid will nw b directing akki don’t suddenly start praising him.

  • I hope it is not Sonakshi again as co-star.

    Katrina or Dips would be just fine.

    An action movie needs a more suave, slim and glam looking girl.

  • He can gain respect if Bang Bang works, if it goes on the way of “Kites” then he has to work hard in his next offering.

  • Wow good news for akkians king of action coming with action thriller . Every director now want work with akki .

  • It has’nt been confirmed, as of now, it’s just a rumour. And if he feels that Akshay suits the role more that doesn’t mean he is Akshay’s fan, had that been the thing he would have cast him in BANG BANG also.

  • @gabbr, cameroon nd spielberg recently contacted with akshay for their next projects but akki refused to do them….lol.

  • yea akki has guts to do dangerous action, he is fit 4 it, but akki’s action cant be stylish as Hrithik can do.. And @Akshay Did u noticed Akki’s statement on Hrithik’s Acting? If no, then know it 1st.. Then talk about acting,
    @indicine, please dont post any update before having full confirmation from persons who related to the post..

  • To all the 1.2bln ppl in india-r u ready for salmania that begins this eid??I m coming with kick one of the best action thrillers ever made.I can’t speak about its collection and Verdict but all I can say is that v hv made a solid paisa vasool entertainer with a strong message that will surely touch ur hearts.

  • Take it easy guys. Siddharth only said the he felt Akshay was more “suitable” to the role than Hrithik, he didn’t say that Akshay is better than Hrithik in general or vice versa. I also think Akshay was more suitable than him in Hera Pheri, Welcome, Boss etc, so he has a point.

  • Shraddha Kapoor has been basking in the glory of her recent success. The
    actor, whose last film recently crossed
    the `100 crore mark, is now looking
    forward to her upcoming releases. Her
    next, in which she stars opposite
    Shahid Kapoor, will clash at the box office with a film that features her
    childhood crush, Hrithik Roshan. And Shraddha couldn’t be more excited
    about that.

  • Akshay should slow down, he has around 7/8 movies in pipeline. He had 3 release last year, none open with good BO collection. This year’s only release also did not open good. In this way he is loosing his core fan base. Few years back he were neck to neck with srk, but now nexgen actors are opening better than him. so, akshay must look on quality not quantity. No thokam pita movies.

  • @bhojpuri babajee lost in Paglapur- so the old man has returned from his pilgrimege in Paglapur where he went to offer a sermon to Paglapurians about how to dress in lungi attire and how best to maintain their lungis etc etc

    Lungiwala babajee lets hope Akkis next is as stylish as his previous action movies like Boss or K786- Shettys flying cars record will be broken this time by Khiladi bhaiya
