Akshay Kumar and Bhumi Pednekar were last seen together in the social drama ‘Toilet: Ek Prem Katha’. Another collaboration is on the cards for the actor duo, but this time, Akshay Kumar dons a different role! The actor will be presenting a brand new film ‘Durgavati’ with Bhumi Pednekar in the lead role. Bhumi Pednekar shared the announcement on her Instagram handle-
“I have waited so long to share this one with you,” wrote Bhumi Pednekar in the caption. Sharing the announcement about Durgavati, she thanked everyone associated with the project. “Thank you Akshay Kumar sir for your constant belief in me. I am so excited for this one. Can’t wait to collaborate with you Ashok sir. This one comes with great responsibility. Need all your blessings!” continued Bhumi. Akshay Kumar too shared the announcement on his Instagram handle-
The film is a ‘scary-thriller’, going on floors by mid-January. The film is directed by south director Ashok, who has previously directed the Telugu hit Bhaagamathie. It is speculated that Durgavati is the Hindi remake of the Telugu film. We wish Akshay Kumar and Bhumi Pednekar all the very best on their new journey!
