Akshay Kumar and Sonam Kapoor will star in director R Balki’s next film. Ilaiyaraaja will compose the soundtrack. Bollywood veteran Amitabh Bachchan also has a small role in the film.
The actor recently met Madhya Pradesh CM Shivraj Chouhan in November this year along with Balki, fuelling reports that a film was in the pipeline.

This will be Akshay and Sonam’s second film together. The duo were previously in the lead cast of Thank You (2011).
This film will be Balki’s fifth film as director. He last helmed Ki & Ka, a film that explored gender stereotypes through the romantic relationship between Kiran, a successful businesswoman, and her husband Kabir. The film released earlier this year to mixed reviews.
