Priyadarshan busy scripting his next for Akshay Kumar!
Priyadarshan is one of those very few filmmakers from South to have carved a niche in the world of Bollywood. The veteran has worked with top stars in Hindi including Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan, Akshay Kumar, Ajay Devgn etc. With Akshy Kumar, Priyadarshan has collaborated in multiple films, some of which were hugely successful.
In a recent interview, the director revealed that he is currently working on a script for Akshay Kumar. The actor-duo had earlier worked together in some superhit films like ‘Hera Pheri’, ‘Bhool Bhulaiyaa’ and ‘Garam Masala’. Priyadarshan has often said that there’s a great comfort factor while working with Akshay Kumar and that has reflected on the success of their films. An official word regarding their new film is eagerly awaited.
Meanwhile, the release of ‘Marakkar: Arabikadalinte Simham’, touted to be Priyadarshan’s magnum opus, is still uncertain. The mammoth project made on a budget of around Rs 100 crore was originally supposed to hit screens on March 28. However, due to the Covid-19 outbreak, release plans had to be dropped. The makers are planning to release the film only by December or early next year.
