Akshay Kumar and Sajid Nadiadwala are again collaborating for Farhad Samji directed Bachchan Pandey. Kriti Sanon, Jacqueline Fernandez and Arshad Warsi have joined the star cast of the film.
According to the information, the gangster comedy is getting bigger and better.
“Sajid and his director, Farhad, were sure on getting acclaimed names on board, and after discussing several names, they decided on getting Arshad on board the film. The first round of discussion happened before the Covid times, when Arshad had asked for Rs 4 crore. However, over the last few months, they renegotiated on the amount and finally settled in on Rs 2.50 crore,” a source close to the development was quoted as saying.
The report also suggests that Arshad will start shooting for the film from the first week of January in Jaisalmer.
“He plays the role of Akshay Kumar’s friend in the film, and their chemistry will be something to look out for. It’s a hilarious track with some jugalbandi between the two actors,” the source further told us.
The makers are planning to complete the film over a period of two months from January till March as they are gearing up for a 2021 release. It is said to be based on the Tamil film, Jigarthanda.
