Speculations are rife that Akshay Kumar and Kareena Kapoor Khan, who have starred together in such movies as Ajnabee (2001), Talaash (2003), Aitraaz (2004), Kambakkht Ishq (2009) and Gabbar is Back (2015), are reteaming after three years.
According to reports, Karan Johar will produce the project under Dharma Productions and it will be directed by debutant Raj Mehta. Raj has previously assisted filmmaker Shashank Khaitan on such successful movies as Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania (2014) and Badrinath Ki Dulhania (2017).
The latest we hear that the movie might be titled as Good News. Though the makers have not announced the title officially, Akshay Kumar talked about it during one of his recent interviews.
“I’m doing a film called Good News. That’s completely different. It’s a real incident by the way, what happened in Good News. But, it’s very funny what happened,” said the National Films Award-winning actor. It’s yet not clear if Kumar was talking about Karan Johar’s movie or some other project.
Reportedly, Raj Mehta’s movie will also star Diljit Dosanjh and Kiara Advani in pivotal roles. It is said to be based on the topic of surrogacy.
