Akshay Kumar to rock Bollywood and Hollywood
Akshay Kumar seems to be riding high these days with releases like Waqt, Garam Masala, Deewane Huye Pagal and an upcoming movie, Humko Deewana Kar Gaye with Katrina Kaif. Akshay Kumar will also be doing a remake of the extremely popular Hindi movie, Guide. The movie which earlier starred Dev Anand and Waheeda Rehman will now star Akshay Kumar and Vidya Balan. It will be produced by Pritish Nandy Communications and directed by Rituparno Ghosh.
The film titled is Rahgir, which means traveler or wanderer is a remake of Vijay Anand’s film, based on the original novel The Guide written by R. K.Narayan. Akshay will play the role of the traveler and Vidya will play Rosie. Ghosh claims that they chose Akshay for the role as he has a deep intensity within him and also an eagerness to learn. Pritish Nandy says that Akshay has always been cast in typical Bollywood movies and hence his abilities have always been limited. However, this movie will give him the opportunity to demonstrate his histrionic talents.
With such vital support and confidence in the actor from his director and producer, we are sure Akshay Kumar will work doubly hard to play the character convincingly.
Akshay Kumar is also slated to do a Hollywood film with Arnold Schwarzenegger. Talks are still in the process and Akshay Kumar is excited and looking forward to the project. Both the stars are known for their action performances. So when the two come together audiences will surely get to watch a punch packed action flick. Here’s wishing Akshay Kumar all the best for his forthcoming films in Hollywood as well as Bollywood.
