Akshay Kumar Scouting for Aspiring Junior Artistes to Feature in Next Film Airlift

After the critical success of his release ‘Baby’, Bollywood superstar, Akshay Kumar is already planning on shooting for the much talked about project ‘Airlift’. Akshay and the makers of Airlift, one of the most anticipated films, set in 1990 and based on one of the largest evacuations of Indians from Kuwait during a time of great conflict.
According to a close source, the makers are looking for aspiring artistes of Indian origin based in the UAE, where the majority of the film will be shot. The director of Airlift has confirmed this by saying: ‘We are looking for extras but not 3000 people. We have undertaken a normal casting process. We will shoot the film in two parts – the first half in Ras al-Khaimah, UAE, and the second half in India where the crowd scenes will be filmed.’
The ever hard-working Akshay will also star in Main Gabbar, a remake of the 2002 Tamil film Ramanaa, which is due to be released on the 1st of May 2015. The film will also star Sonu Sood, Prakash Raj and Shruti Hassan.

Airlift, also starring Nimrat Kaur, is due for release globally in early 2016.

It appears, Akshay Kumar will be taking a break from the 'social cause' films like Toilet: Ek Prem Katha and be seen in Veeram's Hindi remake. The remake is reportedly going to be directed by Farhad Samji. Some reports have suggested the film will be called 'Land of Lungi'. Akshay Kumar is on a roll with some great projects in his kitty. The original Khiladi just gave a box office hit with Toilet: Ek Prem Katha, and now we hear that he will be seen in Veeram’s Hindi remake. From what we hear, Akshay Kumar will be taking a break from ‘social cause’ films. And after Padman and 2.0 with Rajinikanth, he will reportedly be seen in Veeram’s Hindi remake. The Hindi remake of Veeram with Akshay Kumar is reportedly going to be directed by Farhad Samji of the Sajid-Farhad duo. While some reports suggest that the film will be called ‘Land of Lungi’, there is no confirmation on the same. When we contacted director Farhad Samji, his wife confirmed this news and expressed excitement. She said,”Farhad is in talks with Akshay Kumar for this film, but he will be able to confirm once things materialise.” Reports also suggest that Sajid Nadiadwala will be producing this film. While Akshay Kumar has not yet confirmed this piece of news, it will be quite exciting to see the Toilet: Ek Prem Katha star donning a lungi for his character. Online Source: The Indian Express
