Akshaye Khanna to appear in a web series on scientist Homi Bhabha
Akshaye Khanna is one of those actors in Bollywood who has given some stellar performances in movies like ‘Border’, ‘Taal’, ‘Race’ and ‘Mom’ among others. The actor is now going to star in a web series.
In a report by PeepingMoon.com, Akshaye will star in a web-series based on the suspicious death of nuclear physicist Homi Jehangir Bhabha. We don’t know the director and producer of this venture yet, but the preparation has been going on full swing in Lebanon’s capital city Beirut. The web series will be set on the backdrop of the 1960s, and the shooting is likely to start in the next few months.
For the uninitiated, Bhabha is known as the father of the Indian nuclear programme and the founder of the Atomic Energy Establishment. This renowned scientist died under mysterious circumstances in a plane crash on January 24, 1966, on his way to Vienna for a scientific conference. The air crash took lives of 11 crew members and 106 passengers. There were reports that it was a conspiracy to kill Bhabha by the CIA in order to disable India’s nuclear programme.
Akshaye last appeared in ‘Ittefaq’ in 2017. The actor will be seen in Vijay Ratnakar Gutte’s ‘The Accidental Prime Minister’ where he is playing policy analyst Sanjaya Baru. The movie is slated to release on December 21. Post ‘The Accidental Prime Minister’, Akshaye was to work on ‘Section 375: Marzi Ya Zabardasti’, but the film has been shelved as of now due to the legal battle between director Manish Gupta and producer Kumar Mangat Pathak.
We are excited to see Akshaye in the role of one of India’s prominent scientists. What about you?
