Shah Rukh Khan, Akshay Kumar to star together in a Malayalam remake?
Bollywood stars Akshay Kumar and Shah Rukh are two of the biggest actors in the industry currently. The duo will be completing close to three decades in the industry and are showing no signs of stopping down. Now, according to reports, SRK and Akki could be starring in a Malayalam remake.
Director Unni Krishnan plans to rope in the two stars for his next, a remake of ‘Kodathi Samaksham Balan Vakeel’. The director has said that he is in talks with the actors for the film, though no official announcement has been made.
This Malayalam film had starred Dileep, Mamta Mohandas and Priya Anand. The Malayalam film released earlier this month to a good reception.
A Silverscreen report quoted Krishnan as saying, “Viacom (the production company) is considering remaking the movie and discussions are in the initial stages. We are talking to both Akshay Kumar and Shah Rukh Khan for starring in the movie.”
Shah Rukh Khan and Akshay Kumar have always remained on cordial terms despite reports of rivalry and competition. The ‘Zero’ actor in an interview had said, “It will be fun to act with Akshay. Dono set pe hi nahin milenge. Woh jaa raha hoga aur main aa raha hounga (laughs). He’ll be leaving the set and I’ll be coming in. I would like to work like Akshay and with him, but our timings won’t match.”
It will certainly be a casting coup if Akshay and Shah Rukh end up doing a film together.
