Grazing Goat Pictures to cast for its next soon

Actor Akshay Kumar’s production house, Grazing Goats Pictures that has earlier produced movies like Fugly would soon start casting for its next. “We have already finalised a script that is a very nice story,” says Ashvini Yardi, co-founder of Grazing Goat Pictures. Not ready to divulge further details, Yardi said that the casting for the film would begin soon, probably in the beginning of August.
When quizzed, if Akshay would be a part of the cast, she remarks, “I am not sure if he would be able to take out time for this one since he is booked till next year. He has Singh Is Bling , a TV show, besides few other projects. We would probably go ahead with other actors for this project.”
The company’s next venture, Singh Is Bling that is being directed by Prabhu Dheva and stars Akshay Kumar and Kriti Sanon in the lead roles, is already on the floors.
