Akshay Kumar’s Naam Hai Boss shoot from August

Riding high on the super-success of Rowdy Rathore, Akshay Kumar is all set to star in another South Indian remake. The film will be titled Naam Hai Boss.

Recently, Akshay had purchased the rights of Malayalam superstar Mammootty’s ‘Pokkiri Raja’ (also starring Shriya Saran) and was keen on remaking the film in Hindi.

Anthony D’Souza the director of one of 2009’s biggest disasters ‘Blue’ will be directing the film. Sources say, Akshay has tremendous faith in his ‘Blue’ director and wanted him to direct the film.

But the director of the original Malayalam film, Vysakh says, he was asked to direct the Hindi version too, but couldn’t take it up because of prior commitment to other films.

The shooting for Naam Hai Boss will begin in August and Akshay will join the crew after completing Once Upon A Time In Mumbai 2 in September.

Stay tuned for more updates on Naam Hai Boss. We haven’t seen the Malayalam version, but wonder if it will be yet another action masala film?

  • Meet AKSHAYS body double

    He served as Akshay Kumar’s body double in Housefull 2. And that’s not all, even Katrina has a body double in the film, a girl called Rochelle Okoye, who has been a part of films like Twilight and Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters.

    After the promo of Salman Khan’s next film opposite Katrina Kaif released at the theatres, it made a lot of people sit back and notice. In fact, soon after, director Kabir Khan tweeted, “You Tube view meter jammed within 3 mins of launch, YRF server in danger of crashing, trending 15 mins after launch…
    Salman Khan with Jawed El Berni who has performed his stunts
    That’s Tiger for you :-)” Now buzz is that in the sequence, where Salman is shown doing what he does best — a series of stunt acts, in fact it is someone else in his shoes. With the help of special effects being done at a Mumbai-based studio, Salman’s body double’s face will be replaced with that of the star.
    Our sources reveal that Salman’s body double is none other than Jawed El Berni, a French national, who in the past too has performed the star’s stunts. Jawed has been practicing martial art for the last 20 years and parkour for three.
    Our sources also say that post-production work has started and VFX artistes are currently working on the painstaking process of replacing the body double’s face with Salman’s.
    There are also rumours suggesting that since Salman back then was still recuperating from Trigeminal Neuralgia (a nerve disorder), he was unable to perform too many stunts on his own and a body double had to be called in.

  • Salman to play superhero in Sher Khan

    Salman Khan, who has, by far one of the biggest and cross sectional fan following the world over, is back as a hero in a film called Sher Khan, for the younger generation. In this film that’s being directed by Sohail Khan, Sallu will play a superhero with special powers.
    If what we hear is to be believed, then Sallu will be featured as a superhero whose power rests in his shoulder length tresses. Further, Salman’s look in the film will be something that he has never tried before!
    Dilip Shukla and Rumi Jaffrey will be writing and designing Sallu’s first superhero film that’s being aimed at the young viewers. However, this superhero will be a far cry from the caped crusaders seen these days, whom the kids can identify with.

  • Salman making ‘baap’ of superhero films to settle scores with SRK

    His charisma is already as great as that of a real-life superhero; but Salman Khan is set to a step further this time around. According to the reports, the superstar of superstars is all geared up to mesmerise the audience by his divine weapons, and in this case his tresses, which reportedly he is going to grow long for the movie ‘Sher Khan’. Having said and done all, we wonder if this is an attempt to supersede his traditional rival Shah Rukh Khan in the ‘superheroic’ department as well. Although the latter ‘Ra.One’ was a mammoth hit at the Box-Office, but the film’s initial expenditure rendered the net revenues to be meager. With Salman being a sure-shot bull’s eye at the ticket windows nowadays, the producers are expected to make merry with this take.
    Now, talking about the characteristics of this superhero, Salman will be playing a ‘Pathan’ with extraordinary powers in his shoulder-length hair. That’s an Indian male version of Medusa we are discussing here. It will make for an exciting watch though, for sure.
    Speaking further, there is no chance that this movie would be shifted over to the backburner since it is a Sohail Khan production. Unless, of course, there is a divine intervention.
