A source states, “The project was picked by Akshay. Indra Kumar had been wanting to make a two-hero film for a long time but was facing some issues with the finances.”
Adds a well-placed source, “A few days back, Akshay and Ashwini greenlighted the project. Akshay will not only produce the film but will also act in it. Ritesh Deshmukh might be the second hero in the project.”
This is the first time that Akki will be working with the director both of whom have been in the industry for decades. Incidentally Indra Kumar is busy with the sequel of his 2004 film which stars Riteish along with Vivek Oberoi and Aftab Shivdasani.
