Earlier, it was reported that Akshay Kumar could be playing the lead role. But now, he won’t be part of the project anymore.

A source quoted by PinkVilla revealed, “Akshay and Sajid have discussed the film and they were keen on doing it together. But now, Akshay won’t be part of the project anymore. He has already allotted his dates to a few other projects like ‘Sooryavanshi’, ‘Laxmmi Bomb’ and ‘The End’. So, Akki suggested his good friend Sajid to go ahead and make LOL with someone else.”

The source further added, “Vicky met the director a few months back and expressed his interest in the film after he was given the narration. Vicky already has his date diary full with a few films he’s already signed, especially the Udham Singh biopic which will be shot over the next one year. There’s Karan Johar‘s ‘Takht’ too which might roll by the year-end or in January 2020. So, he has worked out his dates in such a way that he can headline ‘Land Of Lungi’ now.”

Vicky Kaushal is steadily becoming a bankable star and his recent results at the box-office have been quite good.

The source concluded by saying, “Vicky is not only a great actor, but he has proved to be a huge draw with the audiences at the box office too. LOL is a space that Vicky has never been seen in. It is a complete masala action comedy and given how massy the reach would be, they plan to establish Vicky as the next common man’s hero with this film.”

Meanwhile, Akshay Kumar has started shooting for Rohit Shetty’s cop drama ‘Sooryavanshi’.
