With the huge success of ‘Mission Mangal’ (2019) Akshay Kumar will be re-uniting with filmmaker Jagan Shakti for a big budget sci-fi project.
“After Jagan Shakti’s direction of ‘Mission Mangal’ , it was an easy choice for Akshay Kumar to rope him in as the director of this new venture. The two of them, Shakti and Kumar have established a working relationship that has paid off in the past so it made the choice of Shakti directing this new venture that much easier, ” Box Office Worldwide reports a source stating.
The insider went on to add, “Though the film has not yet been titled, it is being said that it will be a science fiction entertainer that will be made on a massive scale. Given the VFX work that will be required for the project, Akshay Kumar is pulling out all stops in terms of budgetary expense. ”
It has been rumoured that Kumar is set to take on a double role for this 2022 release, however this is yet to be confirmed.
