Akshay Kumar and Karan Johar are set to work together for the first time in a film titled ‘Warrior’, which will star Sidharth Malhotra. The film will be directed by ‘Agneepath’ (2013) director Karan Malhotra.

Mumbai Mirror reports that the film will be a co-production and will be helmed by Punit Malhotra. The film is said to be a remake of a South Indian film. Punit will scout for locales from August before the film goes on the floors at the end of this year.

A source told Mumbai Mirror, “The script of the first half is ready and will be given to Akshay for a read next week. Then, KJo, Akshay and Punit will have another meeting to flesh out the second half.”
