Talented Hindi film actor Akshaye Khanna, who has been doing a bunch of serious roles ever since he started his second inning in Bollywood, has reportedly signed on to play an important role in an upcoming out-and-out comic-caper.

To be directed by debutante Karan Kashyap, the untitled film will feature the actor in a never-seen-before avatar. Buzz also has it that apart from playing one of the lead characters, Khanna may also co-produce the film.

“Akshaye Khanna has a brilliant role in the film. He has impressed everyone with his performances with films like Mom (2017), Ittefaq (2017) and The Accidental Prime Minister (2019) on his comeback trail, and has picked up the film because he could not refuse the comic role. He has been staying away from comedy films because he did not want to do slapstick roles anymore. The director Karan Kashyap is also a debutant. In fact, Akshaye is so impressed with the film that he may also turn presenter of the film,” a trade source reveals to an Indian daily.

Meanwhile, Akshaye Khanna is presently busy shooting for his next film, titled Section 375: Marzi Ya Jabardasti, wherein he plays a lawyer. Directed by Ajay Behl, the movie also features Richa Chadha in an important role.

Its release date is yet to be announced.
