Diwali is considered as one of the most auspicious days in the Indian culture and for our Hindi film industry too. It is a time of celebration as the holiday season brings a spike in the Box-Office collections. Last year’s Diwali couldn’t see much moolah at the Box-Office due to the Covid pandemic, and this year too there are clouds of uncertainty looming. But it seems like there is a big gift waiting for the audience, to make the holiday season more special this year.
Spotboye.com has exclusively learnt that Sajid Nadiadwala is planning to unveil the trailer of his next awaited film, Bachchan Pandey, featuring Akshay Kumar, Kriti Sanon and Jacqueline Fernandez this Diwali.
It was recently reported that Akshay, Kriti and Jacqueline have wrapped up their last portions of the film in Mumbai. Bachchan Pandey went on floors in Jaisalmer in January this year, where a major portion of the film was shot. It was followed by a schedule in Mumbai as well.
Now, a source close to the development reveals, “The team has wrapped up the film in 55 days with an extremely talented ensemble cast. Sajid Sir along with Akshay and Farhad have watched the rushes and locked the line-up of the film and the edit is also at the finishing stage. While they prepare for the trailer launch this Diwali, the team is sure that the audience will love the mass entertainer which they have made.”
Bachchan Pandey also stars Prateik Babbar, Pankaj Tripathi and Arshad Warsi. It is produced by Sajid Nadiadwala and directed by Farhad Samji. In the film, Akshay will be seen as a gangster, who aspires to be an actor and his first look poster had left everyone spooked and increased the intrigue around the action-comedy.
The film is gearing up for the January 26, 2022 release. It is among the most talked-about projects, and will mark a reunion for Akshay with both his leading ladies.
