Actor Akshay Kumar and filmmaker Ekta Kapoor are reuniting after six years for a yet-to-be-titled action-comedy. The film is expected to release in the second half of the next year and will feature Akshay tickling some funny bones with his performance. As reported by Mumbai Mirror, the actor has been reading many scripts to work with Kapoor and he zeroed-in on this film around 10 days back. It’s a film that’s laced with humour and also carries a lot of stylised action. The report also mentioned that the film is being helmed by a debutant director and is mounted on a lavish budget.

Like all his films, Akshay will complete this one too in a start-to-finish schedule.” Now with this new film, Akshay has got as many as seven films in his kitty. While Rohit Shetty’s Sooryavanshi and Raghava Lawrence’s Laxmmi  Bomb are set for release in a few months, Bachchan Pandey and Prithviraj are taking over the second half of 2021. Bell Bottom and Atrangi Re are scheduled for release next year. Also Read - Akshay Kumar And Katrina Kaif Pose For The Cutest Picture From Sets of Sooryavanshi

From comedy, action, period dramas to love story – Akshay’s upcoming films vary through different genres. The actor doesn’t want to restrict himself to a particular genre and the range of genres seen in his upcoming films is proof of the same. The actor is also expected to be seen in a special appearance in Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 which is fronted by Kartik Aaryan, Tabu and Kiara Advani. Akshay was a part of the first film in the franchise. Anees Bazmee, who’s helming the second film, had hinted recently that he’s going to pitch an idea about a special appearance in Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 to Akshay.
