Akshay to romance Parineeti in ‘Thuppakki’ remake

Akshay Kumar’s wife Twinkle Khanna has objection against Akshay working with Priyanka following the rumor of their alleged relationship but she has got no objection about Akki working with Priyanka's cousin Parineeti Chopra. Parineeti who debuted with 'ladies V/s Ricky Bahl' has been paired opposite Akki for A R Murugadoss’ Hindi remake of the Tamil action thriller Thuppakki being produced by Vipul Shah. The original film features Vijay and Kajal Aggarwal.

Says a source, “Of late, Akshay has been working with newer actresses like Sonakshi Sinha in Rowdy Rathore and Anushka Sharma in Patiala House. So this time he will team up with another youngster Parineeti.

Deepika Padukone and Katrina Kaif were initially considered for the movie but finally Parineeti has been confirmed. But a source close to Murugadoss informs, “Parineeti has been confirmed for the role. Priyanka has no clue about it!”

South director Murgadoss made his Bollywood debut with Aamir Khan’s ‘Ghajini’ which became a blockbuster.

Akshay Kumar will be next seen in ‘Khiladi 786’ opposite Asin. The film is slated to release on 7th December.
