Akshay Kumar’s ‘Bachchan Pandey’ is going through a lot of changes beyond the character’s look and new release date. The makers have now decided to change the script as well, instead of remaking the Tamil super hit ‘Veeram’ (2014).
“Initially, this was supposed to be the same film as ‘Land Of Lungi’, which they announced. That was an adaptation of ‘Veeram’. But now, the team recently met up and there have been several discussions and changes being made to the script. The new script is a completely original idea and has nothing similar to ‘Veeram’ or as a matter of fact, even ‘Land of Lungi’.”, a source told Pinkvilla, “The idea is to make him look like he’s looked never before. When the script got changed, they decided to make a few alterations to Akshay’s look as the character Bachchan Pandey too.”
Due to all the changes, and to avoid a clash with ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’, the release date has been pushed to Republic Day weekend in 2021.
