Bachchan Pandey, directed by Farhad Samji and produced by Sajid Nadiawala, will reportedly premiere its trailer on February 18. The film, which stars Akshay Kumar, Kriti Sanon, and Jacqueline Fernandez, is said to be a remake of the Tamil movie Jigarthanda, which follows a vicious criminal who seeks recognition and an aspiring director who is given the opportunity to direct him.

A trade source tells Pinkvilla, “The trailer of Bachchan Pandey will be released on February 18 – a month before its theatrical release (March 18). There are two reasons for the trailer’s release – Sajid Nadiadwala’s birthday is on the same day and 18 is also Akshay’s lucky number (1+8 = 9). The action-comedy-romance-drama is one of the most anticipated movies of this year as it marks Akshay’s return to the genres he is most loved in – action and comedy and is sure to be a theatrical blockbuster. The crime comedy has been shot spectacularly in a massy way and will surely rope in the audiences in a big way. Recently, they shot for a Holi song called Bhayankar (composed by Tanishk Bagchi) with Akshay Kumar, which will be added to the movie (March 18 is also the date for Holi). The song was shot in Film City and one may see a glimpse in the trailer.”

The source adds, “Kriti Sanon’s role has apparently been changed from the original Tamil movie Jigarthanda in Farhad Samji’s Bachchan Pandey. While in the Tamil version, Jigarthanda tells the story of Karthik (played by Siddharth), an aspiring director, who gets a chance to make a film, based on gangsterism and meets Gangster Assault Sethu (played by Bobby Simha), who wants to have his life story on the silver screen and what happens when they meet. But in Farhad Samji’s version, Karthik’s role of the aspiring director will be played by Kriti Sanon and not a male actor as the script has been changed accordingly. Akshay Kumar plays the ruthless gangster on whom Kriti makes her biopic. Obviously, the film has been adapted for a pan India audience and the script for Bachchan Pandey hAS been written as such. Jacqueline plays Akshay’s romantic interest. Kriti and Akshay will be seen in Bachchan Pandey again after their last release, Housefull 4.”
