‘Heropanti’ actress Kriti Sanon to romance Akshay Kumar

Kriti Sanon who debuted with Sajid Nadiadwala’s ‘Heropanti’ opposite debutante Tiger Shroff, son of Jackie Shroff has bagged another promising project. She will be seen opposite the Khiladi Kumar of Bollywood, Akshay Kumar in Prabhu Deva’s ‘Singh Is Bling’.

Earlier there were reports that Sonakshi Sinha, Katrina Kaif or even Kareena Kapoor were to be paired opposite Akshay Kumar in ‘Singh Is Bling’ which is a remake of 2008 superhit movie, ‘Singh Is King’ but now Kriti has been finalized.

Sonakshi and Katrina had worked with Akshay Kumar in few blockbusters and now the maker is keen to cast a new face opposite Akki.

Prabhu says, "The heroines in my film always have their own space in the plot. Was Sonakshi Sinha in Rowdy Rathod or R... Rajkumar just a decorative doll? No way! My films may be titled after the hero, but the heroine has no reason to complain."

Producer Ashvini Yardi is tight lipped about it though and said, "It's too early to talk about it. We are yet to finalise the lead actress. We will make an announcement later this month."

Hope, the fresh pair of Akshay and Kriti will spark magic at the box-office.
