Do you love films based on space and astronauts? If yes, then very soon you might happen to see one made by an Indian filmmaker. Because if the latest reports are anything to go by then R. Balki, Viacom 18 Motion Pictures and Akshay Kumar are all set to collaborate for the first ever Indian Space film.

Apart from co-producing the film, khiladi Akshay Kumar will also star in the film along with Vidya Balan and Nimrat Kaur states a report in Bollywood Hungama. A source close to the development was quoted as saying by Bollywood Hungama, “Yes, Viacom and Balki have come together for a film which will be the first ever Indian movie on astronauts. In fact, the film will be about sending a crew of chosen people to Mars.” 

The report further stated that this yet-to-be-titled film will be helmed by Jagan Shakti. Interestingly, Balki has worked previously with Akshay Kumar in ‘Pad Man’ and with Vidya Balan in ‘Paa’. Akshay and Vidya have earlier shared screen space in ‘Heyy Babyy’ and ‘Bhool Bhulaiyaa’. Reportedly, apart from Vidya and Nimrat, two more actresses are going to be roped in for this project.

Earlier, ‘Chanda Mama Door Ke’ starring Sushant Singh Rajput in the lead was supposed to be the first film based on space. However, the film has been put in the back-burner after Sushant walked out of the film due to budget constraints.

Coming back to R Balki’s untitled film, it would be really nice to watch Akshay and Vidya work together again. Don’t you guys agree with us? However, with no official announcement made about this project, all we can do is wait and watch.

Till then, you guys stay tuned for more such interesting updates.
