Neeraj Pandey Opens Up On Crack With Akshay Kumar, Says There Is No Fall-Out With The Actor
Akshay Kumar is the busiest actor in the industry. Almost every two months, he'll announce his new film. Amidst his hoard of films, in 2016, he had announced a film called Crack. Helmed by Neeraj Pandey, Crack was supposed to be a psychological thriller based on special forces. However, it's been two years since the announcement and there's no update on this film. Reportedly, this film got shelved because there was a fall-out between the director and Akshay Kumar. However, there's no truth to these rumours.

To Mumbai Mirror, Neeraj Pandey has revealed the actual reason as to why Crack had to be put on hold. The director did not like the way the script and hence the decision. He was quoted saying, "It’s on the back burner with no immediate plans of revival. I was not happy with the script, but if I manage to crack something good in the future, I might (revive it).” Further talking about the fall-out with Akshay, he said, "There has been no fall-out with Akshay, so, why the question of a reunion? I am moving on with Chanakya (led by Ajay Devgn) and he is doing other films. It’s a great responsibility for both of us and we have to wait for the right project.”

While Crack didn't happen, Akshay did pick up many other projects. He is next to be seen in Rohit Shetty's cop drama Sooryavanshi, however, the release date of the film has been pushed because of the outbreak of Coronavirus. He also has Laxmmi Bomb coming up as Eid release.
