Aanand L Rai has been working hard on getting his next film off the grounds after the debacle of ‘Zero’ in 2018. The filmmaker is reportedly planning to rope in Akshay Kumar as the lead in his upcoming untitled film, which also stars Dhanush and Sara Ali Khan.
Previously, Dhanush confirmed he will be a part of the project. He said, “Yes, I will be teaming up with Aanand L Rai in some time, but other than that, I am waiting for the right script to come my way. I am doing a Hindi film and there will be an announcement about the same pretty soon.”
Rumours are rife that Kumar has agreed to do an extended cameo in the Rai directorial. BollywoodLife reports that he has given his dates to the filmmaker in the midst of a packed-out diary, which includes films like ‘Prithviraj’, ‘Bachchan Pandey’, ‘Sooryavanshi’ and ‘Laxmmi Bomb’.
A source told the publication, “Sara Ali Khan and Hrithik Roshan were approached for this movie after Dhanush. And while an official announcement is yet to happen, the makers are quite excited for it already.”
