Akshay Kumar and Neeraj Pandey to come together for a movie on PM Modi’s National Security Advisor?
After working with filmmaker Neeraj Pandey in movies like ‘Rustom’, ‘Baby’, ‘Special 26’, ‘Naam Shabana’, and ‘Toilet: Ek Prem Katha’, Akshay Kumar is going to reunite with him once again. As per a report in Mumbai Mirror, it is a thriller based on the career of Ajit Doval, the fifth and current National Security Advisor to PM Narendra Modi.
Mumbai Mirror quoted a source saying, “Neeraj will first make ‘Chanakya’ with Ajay Devgn, which was announced a few months ago. Akshay also has to complete prior commitments. The team wants to lock the script before making an official announcement.”
For the unversed, Ajit Doval started as an IPS officer and he was looking into anti-insurgency operations in Mizoram and Punjab, and also acted as a negotiator to facilitate the release of passengers from IC-814 in Kandahar in 1999. Also, he was one of those who strategised this year’s Balakot airstrike on February 26. He served as the Director of the Intelligence Bureau in 2004–05. He was honoured with one of the highest military gallantry awards, Kirti Chakra for his service.
Coming back to Akshay Kumar, he has many movies lined up for 2019 release that include ‘Mission Mangal’, ‘Housefull 4′ and ‘Good News’. In 2020, he has Rohit Shetty’s ‘Sooryavanshi’. Also, he has ‘Laxmmi Bomb’ and ‘Bachchan Pandey’.
