Akshay Kumar and Emraan Hashmi announced their forthcoming film Selfiee earlier this year. The film’s principal heroines, Nushrratt Bharuccha and Diana Penty, have already joined the cast. The four actors grooved together and posted a special video that was used to make the announcement.
Sharing the fun video, Akshay wrote, “With @nushrrattbharuccha and @dianapenty joining in, the #Selfiee squad is in full gear! Whatsay @therealemraan, ho jaye muqabla (sic)?”
In the original Malayalam film Driving Licence directed by Lal Jr, Prithviraj Sukumaran played a superstar and Suraj Venjaramoodu featured as a motor vehicle inspector. In Selfiee, the roles would be played by Akshay Kumar and Emraan Hashmi, respectively. The plot depicts the mayhem that ensues when a celebrity who enjoys driving loses his licence and clashes with a motor vehicle examiner who also happens to be a fan.
Selfiee is co-produced by Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions, Akshay Kumar’s Cape of Good Films and Sukumaran’s Prithviraj Productions and Magic Frames.
