Filmmaker Neeraj Pandey and Akshay Kumar have worked together in films like Special 26, Baby, Rustom (produced by Pandey), Naam Shabana (produced by Pandey) and Toilet: Ek Prem Katha (produced by Pandey). The two were all set to collaborate for a film titled Crack, but the movie has been put on a back burner.
Recently, while talking to a tabloid, Pandey spoke about the film and stated, “It’s on the back-burner with no immediate plans of revival. I was not happy with the script, but if I manage to crack something good in the future, I might (revive it).”

After Crack didn’t work out there were reports that all is not well between Akshay and Neeraj. The two were also supposed to clash at the box office in 2018 with their respective films PadMan and Aiyaary. However, the clash was later averted.
Talking about the fall-out reports, the filmmaker told the tabloid, “There has been no fall-out with Akshay, so, why the question of a reunion? I am moving on with Chanakya (led by Ajay Devgn) and he is doing other films. It’s a great responsibility for both of us and we have to wait for the right project.”
Well, there were reports that Neeraj Pandey is also planning a sequel to Baby, but the filmmaker stated that he will do it with the right script and something that is capable of taking the franchise forward.
