Karan expressed his joy by saying, “Truly a fraternity feeling when friends come together to make a special film.”
The movie will mark the debut of top Punjabi director Anurag Singh who will helm this special project. Anurag has directed hit Punjabi films like Jatt and Juliet and Punjab 1984.
Akshay and Salman’s friendship goes back a long way and both have starred together in Mujhse Shaadi Karogi and Jaan-E-Mann. Salman has always gone out of his way to praise Akshay as the only actor from their times who has grown both in terms of acting and stature. The Sultan star even made a surprise entry at 2.O launch in Mumbai to lend support to Akshay Kumar’s southern magnum opus starring Rajinikanth.
Unfortunately the new joint production will not star Salman unless the Sultan star decides to do a cameo. And we would love that if it happens. For the moment, the title and story of the production remains under wraps.
