Akshay Kumar and Kriti Sanon-starrer Bachchan Pandey has been the talk of the town ever since it was announced. Touted to be an action-comedy, the film will star Akshay in the lead role as a gangster who aspires to be an actor. Now, the latest buzz suggests that Arshad Warsi has also come on board for the film. Arshad has been roped in to play Akshay’s friend and gang member.
Just like Akshay, Arshad too will have a special look for the film and his character will be pivotal to the story. “The makers were looking for someone who could match Akshay’s comic timing and they found it in Munnabhai’s Circuit, who, over the years, has aced this space. It’s a first time pairing for the actors.”
Director Farhad Samji is currently hunting for locations in Jaisalmer and wants to shoot at places like Jaisalkot and Gadisar Lake.
