[h4]Akshay Kumar took to his social media profiles today to share a picture of him along with Bhumi Pednekar announcing a new film together – Durgavati. [/h4]
Durgavati will be Akshay Kumar and Bhumi Pedenekar’s second film together after their blockbuster first movie, ‘Toilet- Ek Prem Katha’.
While sharing the announcement picture (Below), Akshay wrote a message:
“EXCITED to announce @bhumipednekar in & as #DURGAVATI. A scary-thriller, going on floor mid-January. Presented by #CapeOfGoodFilms and @bhushankumar, produced by @ivikramix and directed by Ashok. Need your love and luck @tseries.official @abundantiaent”
Durgavati will be directed by G Ashok and Viram Mix will be producing it under the banner of Akshay’s production house and Cape Of Good Films. Bhushan Kumar of Tseries will also be presenting it.
From the title, we assume that the film will be based on one of India’s brave queens, Durgavati. Although Akshay Kumar has said that the film is going to be a “scary thriller”.
Rani Durgavati was the ruling Queen of Gondwana from 1550 until 1564. She was born in the family of Chandel king Keerat Rai. She was born at the fort of Kalinjar. Rani Durgavati’s achievements further enhanced the glory of her ancestral tradition of courage and patronage. (Source: Wikipedia.org).
Talking about their individual projects, Bhumi and Akshay Kumar both are awaiting the release of their films, Pati Patni Aur Woh and Good Newwz respectively.
