Sources say almost 10 months after the film’s wrap-up, Akshay to shoot a dance number with Rakul for Production No 41
Akshay Kumar and Rakul Preet Singh
Moving on from the underwhelming performance of his latest release 'Raksha Bandhan', Akshay Kumar is single-mindedly focusing on the tentatively-titled 'Production No 41'. The Ranjit M Tewari-directed film, which also stars Rakul Preet Singh and Sargun Mehta, is said to be a thriller and has been shot across the UK. While the superstar had wrapped up the project last October, it is now learnt that he will film a special number in Mumbai this week.
A source reveals, “The makers have planned a special dance number that will feature Akshay and Rakul. Choreographer Ahmed Khan has been roped in to design the song. The groundwork has begun — while the background dancers are already rehearsing for it, an elaborate set has been erected in Kandivali. It will be shot with the leads in the coming days.”
