Rawdy Rathore Akshay Kumar will be reportedly wooing Barfi girl Ileana D’Cruz in the new movie Gabbar. Their romance is being conceived by Black-man Sanjay Leela Bhansali.
Expectations will be high from Gabbar following a successful association of Akshay Kumar and Sanjay Leela Bhansali for the Rs 100 crore film â€“ Rowdy Rathore last year.
A remake of the hit Tamil film â€˜Ramanaaâ€™ (2002), Gabbar is about India’s most popular subject – fight against corruption, and is being directed by South director Krish (Gamyam and Vedam) who makes his Bollywood debut.
Akshay’s recent success with Special 26 has put the 46-year old actor in a league of versatile stars of Bollywood.
Behind the camera had also become a producer, partnering with Ashvini Yardi for Grazing Goat Pictures, which produced National award-winning OMG: Oh My God.
This year will be critical for Akshay who is already shaping his next cinematic venture, a film with eclectic director Karan Johar, titled â€˜Gutkaâ€™.
Akshay is also playing the lead in Ekta Kapoor’s new gangster film “Once Upon a Time in Mumbai Again”. He was recently spotted promoting the film at IPL, along with co-actors Sonakshi Sinha and Imran Khan.
The Padmashree-awardee made his Bollywood debut with Saugangh in 1991, but it wasn’t until Khiladi in 1994 that the Delhi actor tasted success on the silver screen.
