According to a source, “The film has been in the planning for sometime now. It was announced as Land Of Lungi which was supposed to be a remake of Ajith starrer Veeram. Now, they have called it Bachchan Pandey, which is also Akshay’s character from the masala actioner. Farhad who worked with Kriti in HF4 liked her professional attitude towards her work and offered her the lead part in his next directorial as well. There were a few other actresses vying for the same role but Kriti topped their list. The announcement will be made soon.”
Report also said, “Unlike other masala film, the female lead has an important part to play in Bachchan Pandey. Kriti is also learning a particular dialect that suits the South Indian character that she’s going to play in the project. Along with Akshay, she also has a few action scenes so the team needed someone who’s good with action and acting equally.”
Talking about the shooting schedule of the movie, source said that it will start from the month of February next year. It said, “Akshay is busy finishing two other projects in between. He has to wrap Laxmmi Bomb, then he promotes Good Newwz and also begins another one in the meantime. Kriti, on the other hand, is currently shooting in Rajasthan for Dinesh Vijan’s Mimi.”
