Akshay Kumar – Bollywood’s new age on screen icon of patriotism is likely to star in a south remake but this time it’s ‘scary’.
The actor who is awaiting the response of his highly awaited PAD MAN based on the life of Arunachalam Muruganantham, a social activist from Tamil Nadu, may do the remake of Tamil horror film KANCHANA 2 .
Written, produced and directed by Raghava Lawrence, KANCHANA 2 is a 2015 Tamil horror comedy. The third installment in the Muni series, the movie featured Raghava Lawrence, Taapsee Pannu and Nithya Menen in lead roles.
According to south based trade analyst Ramesh Bala, Akshay Kumar may do this remake. Ramaesh took to his social media handle and posted, “@akshaykumar to remake @offl_Lawrence - @taapsee 's 2015 Blockbuster #Kanchana2 in Hindi.
Apart from doing remakes of action packed blockbusters from south like GABBAR IS BACK (remake of Tamil film RAMANAA), BOSS (Malayalam film POKKRI RAJA), ROWDY RATHORE (remake of Telugu film VIKRAMARKUDU), Akshay has featured in a horror comedy earlier in BHOOL BHULAIYA – the remake of Malayalam horror comedy MANICHITRATHAZHU.
The year 2018 will see Akshay Kumar in diverse avatar; in GOLD, the actor will be seen playing the life of hockey player Balbir Singh Sr on screen and in the highly awaited 2.0 the Bollywood icon of patriotism, true virtues and fitness will be seen logging heads with the superstar Rajiniknath in this mega budget magnum opus.
An official confirmation on this from Akshay Kumar is awaited.
