Just lately, filmmaker Nikkhil Advani printed that the past due actor Irrfan Khan used to be the primary selection for the movie. Whilst talking to Movie Spouse, he stated that it used to be Akshay who sought after to function within the movie.
Nikkhil stated, “I once went to narrate a film to Akshay and he immediately said, ‘No this is not for me’. He asked what else I was working on. I said there is this other film that I’m not directing. A director called Raja Menon will make it, it’s based on a real story. It was Airlift. Next morning he said, why won’t you offer this to me.”
The director additional added, “I said because you’ll never do it. There’s no song, the director’s earlier film was Barah Aana… the numbers just don’t add up. Also Raja wants Irrfan for this part. He said can you please speak to him, I really want to do this.”
Irrfan Khan kicked the bucket in 2020. His premature death surprised his lovers and business colleagues.
In the meantime, Akshay lately wrapped the shoot of Aanand L Rai’s ‘Raksha Bandhan’ in Delhi. He’ll be quickly noticed in ‘Sooryavanshi’ with Katrina Kaif. Except for this, he has ‘Prithviraj’, ‘Bachchan Pandey’, ‘Cinderella’ and ‘Ram Setu’ within the kitty.
