Akshay Kumar to star in Prakash Jha movie? Sweet.


 

This is good news.  I’ve just re-watched a whole batch of old Akki movies and I am in the mood for more.   Prakash Jha  is all about political cinema, though, and that will put sex appeal on the backburner…  even if that seems quite impossible when you talk about Akki.  :-)  It will be a good change, on the other hand, since Akshay’s last few movies were a bit silly and didn’t do him  justice.  It’s time to hit the screen with a big caliber. Prakash Jha is just the right man for that.

The buzz is that Bollywood hunk Akshay Kumar has been roped in to play the lead role in the Hindi remake of K V Anand’s Ko.

The remake, reportedly titled Sathyagraha, is being directed by Prakash Jha, who is known for films with socio-political themes. Says a source close to the development, “Akshay has signed on Jha’s film. He will be playing the role essayed by Jiiva in the original. The unit is now trying to get the dates of top stars for the other crucial characters.”

We hear that the makers are keen to make the project a true multi-starrer and are thinking of casting only major Bollywood stars for it. “That is why even an actor like Prakash Raj, who was in the original, is not being considered for this film. Instead, they are trying for Nana Patekar, who is being pencilled in to play either Prakash Raj’s or Kota Sreenivasa Rao’s character in the original,” adds the source.

And it seems that Katrina (who worked with Jha on Rajneeti) or Kareena could play the leading lady that was essayed by Karthika in the original.
