Big B & Mr. Khiladi Reunite on Screen After 10 Years

Do you remember the last time you saw Akshay Kumar and Amitabh Bachchan in a film together? Let us refresh your memory – they were last seen together in the film Family: Ties of Blood, which released almost 10 years ago. Wow, time really flies! Now, the duo is back and are going to share screen space in R. Balki’s next film, which we will be able to see sneak peeks of in 2017.
R. Balki, is one of the most talented directors in Bollywood, who has never shied away from creating off-beat films that don’t fail to capture the essence of human emotions and its correlation with the society. And if you take a look at his work history, you’ll notice that all his films have Amitabh Bachchan in them, either in the lead role or making a small appearance in the film. It’s almost like Big B is his lucky charm. And we totally agree with that! By taking this into consideration, it’s definitely not a surprise to see Mr. Bachchan will be in his next film. Now the real question is, what kind of role is he going to play? Balki is still in the process of fleshing out his role and so we will just have to wait a little to know more about it.

On the other hand, this film will be Akshay Kumar’s first film with R. Balki. Just last month, the two met to discuss the film and that’s when Akshay got to know that he was the filmmaker’s first choice for the role. Mr. Khiladi is stoked to learn that, and is looking forward to his reunion with Big B.

For now, Amitabh Bachchan and Akshay Kumar are busy working on the films Sarkar 3 and Toilet: Ek Prem Katha, respectively. Once Gauri Shinde and R. Balki’s film, Dear Zindagi hits the theatres on 25th November, Balki will move his focus towards this film and start work on it in full swing.

So, are you excited to know how this film is going to turn out? Don't forget to watch this space for more info.
