As per the announcement, Akshay Kumar will be seen in a lead role.
It will be interesting to see Karan Johar and Salman Khan working together for a movie as both the celebrities haven’t really worked with one another since Kuch Kuch Hota Hai movie which was released in 1998.
Talking about Akshay and Salman, they always have shared the bond of friendship and been vocal about it too. Recently, Salman has shared stage with Akshay on the poster launch event of upcoming 2.0 movie featuring Rajinikanth. He was not invited, but he still came to show his support for Akshay and to meet the superstar Rajinikanth.
“I wasn’t invited. I got to know the launch was here. So came here. Akshay Kumar is the only actor who has had growth in our industry. Rest of us are stagnant,” said Salman Khan at the launch event.
