Bollywood actor Pankaj Tripathi has teamed up with Sajid Nadiadwala for ‘Bachchan Pandey’ after working together in Super 30 & ’83.
As we can see this is first time when Super star Akshay Kumar & Pankaj Tripathi will be working together. Speaking about the same, a source close to the development said, “While Kriti & Pankaj have worked earlier in Lukka Chuppi. Pankaj & Akshay will be teaming up for the first time. Both are known for their comic timing and unusual choices and one cannot wait to see the creativity that both these actors create on-screen. Pankaj will be joining Akshay, Kriti, Jacqueline & Arshad in Jaisalmer from January onwards.”
The source further added, “It was Sajid Sir & Farhad Sir’s idea to rope him for a pivotal role which will add a lot of humour to the storyline. It’s a huge ensemble cast which will be shooting together for 90 days, it’s going to be a roller coaster ride.”
Akshay plays a gangster in the film, while Kriti plays a journalist. The twist in the tale occurs when the two characters meet and discover their common passion for cinema. Bachchan Pandey will be set for release in 2021.
Arshad Warsi talks on working with Akshay with DNA, he said , “I think he is feeling guilty now to work with me (laughs). It was just that, the director of the film Farhad (Farhad Samji). He is the person who has written most of the Golmaal series, so he is a writer. He really, really wanted Akshay and me in a film together. This script he just said, I have to do it, it is great fun.”
He further added, “Me personally, I am not just saying it for effect, I am a big fan of Akshay. I don’t think there is any other actor who can pull off comedy as well as Akshay does. He is absolutely hilarious. I think he and me in a film together should be a treat for the audience.”
