Akshay Kumar is quite busy with back to back films, which includes Farhad Samji’s Bachchan Pandey. Initially the film was announced as Land Of Lungi, it was said to be the remake of Tamil film Veeram starring Ajith. However, it has been reported now that the film is no longer a remake.
The film which is a masala entertainer also features Kriti Sanon as the female lead. According to a report published in a tabloid film’s makers have made several changes to the script and it will no longer be a remake of any other film, but an original venture.
It also quoted a source as saying, “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.”
If we look closely, Akshay’s first look from the poster is nowhere close to Veeram.
“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,” Akshay added.
The film was earlier slated for December 2020 which is now expected to hit the screens by Republic Day 2012.
