Akshay Kumar will have no leading lady to romance in his next film, which is a remake of South film ‘Pokkiri Raja’.
In a career spanning over two decades, this would be the first time that an Akshay Kumar film will not have a leading lady opposite him.
A source close to the film reveals, “It is for the first time that there will be no heroine opposite Akshay Kumar in the film. He is playing the role of Mammooty (the actor in the original film). But there will be two young newcomers – one hero and heroine.”
This film will be directed by Anthony D’souza, who has earlier directed Akshay Kumar starrer ‘Blue’.
