Co-producers Karan Johar and Salman Khan are reportedly planning a sports film starring superstar Akshay Kumar.

The trio had initially come together to produce a historical film on the Battle of Saragarhi, but have since decided to change gear.

“They felt that a historical project may not be the right vehicle for the coming together of the trio. They will now do another film altogether, most probably a sports biopic which would star Akshay, while Karan and Salman will co-produce the film, again as planned,” a source told Deccan Chronicle.

Reportedly, the team wants to focus on a sport other than cricket or hockey.
