Since last night, reports of Akshay’s next with Farhad started hitting the web. Rumours suggested that Bachchan Pandey is touted to be a masala entertainer. A source close to the Pinkvilla had revealed, “Sajid and Akshay are best friends. They were planning to do another film and it was then that Farhad Samji came up with LOL Land OF Lungi. That film isn't happening with Akshay but he is doing another project, that will be directed by Farhad and produced by Sajid.
Calling it a masala actioner, the source added, "It's entertaining and extremely massy. Akshay has recently shot for the film's poster too. While there are many social dramas he's known for, this will be in a completely Rowdy Rathore space. It's a fun potboiler where Akki will playing to the plexes." Expect Akshay to be in his elements and the film will mostly roll sometime in the first half of 2020. "Akshay also has his web series The End for which he has to allot almost a month for the shoot of the first season. He will have to finish the three projects lined up for now and then move on to this action flick."
