Jatt & Juliet Hindi remake – Akshay to play the lead?

Akshay KumarThe hindi remake rights of Punjabi film ‘Jatt & Juliet’, has been secured by producers Himesh Reshammiya and Rakesh Upadhyay – the team behind last week’s release ‘Khiladi 786’.

Now, rumours are floating around that Akshay Kumar is likely to play the lead in the Hindi version of the film.

While Upadhyay confirmed that the film is likely to go on floors early next year, he refused to comment on the star cast “At the moment, I wouldn’t like to comment on the cast. But yes, Himesh and I are going ahead with two projects. One of them is a thriller and the other is the remake of ‘Jatt & Juliet’. The Punjabi film was also produced by Himesh and me. We’ll do the remake on a much more lavish scale. But the basic plot of ‘Jatt & Juliet’ is so endearing it needs no embellishment in Hindi.”

Jatt & Jatt, starring Diljit Dosanjh and Neeru Bajwa, was one of the biggest blockbusters from Punjab. The Hindi remake will be directed by Anurag Singh, who also directed the original.



  • one thing i like about akashay is, that he is not choosse about scripts, he makes emotional decisions and not practical,( thats a sign of a gud person) he doesnt care about boxoffice success, (eg. OMG movie) he justs wants to give his fans happiness, thats why he has a huge fanfollowing among masses. thankyou.

  • On 12-12-12, akshay became the first ever indian actor to collect 400+ crores in single year.

  • Kabhi kabhi mere dil main khayal ata hain..Agar South ke Film nehi hota to Akshay ka kya hota?” The Remake king…
    Survival of the fittest ..Thats how ur surviving by Remakes…

  • @wadud, just by doin rowdy rathore u say so!!!!! its fine that u dont like him, but atleast dont criticize sumbdy who really is doing good work :)

  • @wadud, by the way jatt and juliet is not south movie. It is punjab’s movie, where akki born and he us true punjabi.

  • @wadud, by the way jatt and juliet is not south movie. It is punjab’s movie, where akki born and he us true punjabi. And he has only one south remake.

  • @ king kumar congratz to akshay for delivering 400 crores in just 8 months!! hf2 in april to k786 in december..total 5 films…really great achievement….but think if dabangg 2 crosses 200 crore..then….

    ett 187 crore..august…dabangg 2 213 cr december…a new world record…in 4 months & just 2 films salman khan becomes first actor to deliver 400 crores!!

  • @tejas, 1st of all he became the first actor. And secondly, d2 cant cross 200 cr mark, as it is mass film(multiplex as well), and is of 1:50 hour, so masses will not like it. It will take higher opening due to less runtime. But it cant cross 200 cr mark.

  • it doesnt make sense for precudors to spend this kind of money ( i mean they can probably get both aamir and SRK to do this movie at a lesser cost ).but akshay along with ab jr are going the volume way currently with multiple releases every year. this makes sense esp for akshay as he will be always be on the fringes of the top league so instead of taking a uniqueness approach he is going to flood the market with his movies. i think he can make a pile of money in the next 2-3 years that way.
