Neeraj Pandey and Akshay Kumar make for a great team. They first collaborated on Special 26 in 2013, Baby in 2015 and now Rustom, which is up for release next month. We now hear that the two will come together for a fourth film, being produced by Neeraj and directed by Shivam Nair, who has earlier directed films such as Ahista Ahista, Maharathi and Bhaag Johnny.
The film, which is based on a RAW agent, apparently has a small role for Akshay. But the actor was so impressed by the part that he took it up anyway.
Says a source, “Neeraj discussed the subject with Akshay and shared the story idea with him. There is an interesting character in the film which has a strong impact and as soon as Akshay heard about it, he immediately agreed to do it.
