Akshay has loved it and has already given his verbal nod to the period saga. The dates and other modalities need to be worked out now, before Akki signs on the dotted line. If Akshay steps in for the film as the hero, he will also co-produce it. While the initial plan was to get a Gen-Y star to step in for the role, Akshay has shown his interest in the project and his presence will only add more star power to it.”

The mega budget extravaganza will also have some of the big international stunt directors coming on board to choreograph the action sequences. The film will be shot across India and major portions will be shot indoors”, added the trade source.
