Kriti Sanon To Star As Akshay Kumar’s Leading Lady Once Again in Bachchan Pandey, Reveal Sources
Akshay Kumar and Kriti Sanon have their hands full with the fourth installment in the world famous Housefull franchise. The chemistry between the two is just wow!
Akshay Kumar and Kriti Sanon have their hands full with the fourth installment in the world famous Housefull franchise. The Housefull 4 team is busy promoting the upcoming comedy and the cast and crew have been sharing snippets from the film every now and then. However, what attracted Indian cinema fans most after watching the recently released trailer was the chemistry between the two stars – Akshay and Kriti and this is what created more hype for the project. Their crackling performance in the song Ek Chumma led fans to believe that they are becoming one of the most sought-after on-screen pairs in B-town.
Well, it seems like the stars agree with us too as they have reportedly signed another film together. While Akshay earlier announced that he will soon begin shooting for Bachchan Pandey after wrapping up Housefull 4, the female lead has been finalised for the project. And it’s none other than Kriti!
Reports suggest that the idea came from Sajid Nadiadwala, who was the producer for Kriti’s debut film, Heropanti, and is also currently the producer for Housefull 4. Furthermore, director Farhad Samji was happy with the idea too. A source close to Sajid said, “Sajid, who gave Kriti her Bollywood break with Heropanti in 2014, and then cast her in Housefull 4 this year, was keen on casting her again in Bachchan Pandey opposite Akshay. Director Farhad Samji, who worked with Kriti in Housefull 4, was also of the same opinion and that’s how the actor bagged the role.” Kriti has become the latest eye candy for filmmakers especially following the success of her previous film Luka Chuppi. Her sister Nupur Sanon is also making her debut in a music video alongside Akshay Kumar. Bachchan Pandey is slated for a Christmas 2020 release. Kriti is waiting for the release of Panipat.
