Recently social media was abuzz when Akshay Kumar’s images from the fields of London and Yorkshire were leaked. A source close to the film had confirmed that Akshay Kumar is shooting for Pooja Entertainments untitled next, based on a real-life hero, Jaswant Gill, and his bravery in a rescue operation at a coal mine. Now we have learnt that Parineeti Chopra has been roped in to play the female lead, opposite the superstar.
She took to social media posting an image of her and Akshay Kumar with the caption “We are back ? This time the Kesari duo may be shooting in York, but the laughs, jokes, games and Punjabi gupshup is the same ????” Needless to say, the duo look super cool together in York. The film is the story of chief mining engineer Jaswant Gill, who rescued miners stuck inside the coal mine. We are excited to see this pair come together after so long.
Interestingly, Akshay and Parineeti will be seen together on the big screen after Kesari which was released in 2019. If that wasn’t enough, ever since Akshay Kumar’s look from the film surfaced, it has been trending on social media. The project is helmed by Tinu Suresh Desai who previously directed Akshay in Rustom and production is done by Pooja Entertainment. We have heard that the production company has blocked over 100 acres for shooting and the film is touted to be the grandest Indian film in terms of scale, ever shot in the UK.
