Mumbai: When Karan Johar announced the film Kesari with Akshay Kumar, Salman Khan’s name was missing from it.
“Yes, he was a part of it, but not now,” confirms Akshay Kumar, making it clear that the Tiger Zinda Hai actor no more has anything to do with the Karan Johar production.
Earlier, we had revealed that Salman had a fall out with the Rowdy Rathore actor, since he wasn’t informed that Ajay Devgn was making a film on the same subject. Salman’s managers too did not communicate the same to him. As a result not only did he drop out of the project, but also changed his manager.
Akshay now reveals that he plans on start working on Kesari immediately. “We start work on Kesari in January. But we will start the continuous shooting after the release of Padman,” he confirms.
Based on the Battle of Saragarhi, Kesari is to be directed by Anurag Singh. While Akshay hasn’t confirmed which actress has been roped in for the movie, Katrina Kaif and Parineeti Chopra’s names have been tossed up.
The fact that Katrina had candidly confirmed that she starts shooting for her next movie in January makes one raise their eyebrows for sure....
