Almost everybody has a lucky charm in Bollywood. And looks like Akshay Kumar is once again readying to use his. Buzz is that after doing as many as six films together, Akki will once again work with Katrina Kaif. The film, a remake of South film Ramana, will be co-produced by Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Shabina Khan. South film director M Raja is slated to helm the Hindi version.
The last movie that Akki and Kat did together was Tees Maar Khan (2010) that turned out to be a total box office disaster.
A source says, “Akshay and Katrina have been probably the most popular hit pair in recent times with blockbusters like Singh is Kinng, Namaste London and Welcome, amongst others. Interestingly, in spite of them doing back-to-back films, they were hardly linked with each other romantically.”
However, after the lukewarm response to De Dana Dhan and Tees Maar Khan, they decided to take a break. Akshay moved on with Sonakshi Sinha as his new lucky mascot.
The source adds, “The initial talks are already done and the project is expected to go on floors by the end of the year. Shabina and Akshay were keen that the film should have Katrina once again as their fans would love to see them getting back together on the big screen.”
Katrina and Shabina remained unavailable for comment.
