“It was Sajid Sir & Farhad Sir’s idea to rope him for a pivotal role which will add a lot of humour to the storyline. It’s a huge ensemble cast which will be shooting together for 90 days, it’s going to be a roller coaster ride,” the source adds further.

In ‘Bachchan Pandey’ Akshay plays a gangster in the film, while Kriti plays a journalist. The twist in the tale occurs when the two characters meet and discover their common passion for cinema. The film also stars Jacqueline Fernandez and is scheduled to release in 2021.
