Akshay Kumar is Taking The Offbeat Route in 2017
The action star took to twitter to announce his upcoming projects. “Busy summing up the year gone by? It’s time to not look back, but look ahead. Here’s what my 2017 looks like. Your thoughts, love and luck needed,” he mentioned.
Toilet, which is based on the concept of Swacha Bharat Abhiyaan and talks about the unhygienic conditions in rural India has him paired with Bhumi Pednekar and is directed by Shree Narayan Singh, who had earlier made Yeh Jo Mohaabat Hai (2012). Jolly LLB 2, directed by Subhash Kapoor, takes a dig at the Indian judicial system. Shot in Lucknow and Varanasi, the film has him paired with Huma Qureshi . Then, he has the quirkily titled film Padman, which will be wife Twinkle Khanna’s first production under her Mrs Funnybones Movies. It’s said to be based on the life of Arunachalam Muruganantham, who became famous for inventing affordable sanitary napkins for women.
Akshay will also be seen as the arch villain opposite Rajinikanth in Shankar’s 2.0. He also has n Neeraj Pandey’s Crack, releasing during Independence Day 2017. Looks like the star has his hands full alright.
