Akshay Kumar and Telugu superstar Mahesh Babu may reportedly team up for A.R. Murugadoss’ upcoming untitled movie. Akshay will play the main antagonist in the film while Mahesh will be seen romancing Parineeti Chopra. According to the report, the movie will be a trilingual one and will simultaneously be released in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu. However, there has not been any official confirmation on Akshay Kumar and Parineeti being part of the project as of now.
Mahesh’s last movie Brahmotsavam bombed at the box office and now the actor is apparently under pressure to come up with a blockbuster. There are also reports that Mahesh Babu has assured PVP Cinema to do another movie with the production company to compensate the losses incurred.
Akshay will be seen in Rajinikanth’s upcoming movie 2.0 that will also present the actor in a negative role. His look in the film was revealed some time back and that had received mixed responses from fans. While some liked it, some others made fun of the same.
There have already been reports suggesting that S. J. Surya is going to play one of the villains in the as yet untitled film. Now it is being said that Akshay Kumar will play the main villain opposite Mahesh Babu. Parineethi Chopra is most likely to play the heroine and now it looks like the project will be a Tamil/Telugu/Hindi trilingual. Akshay will next be seen in another serious role in the movie Rustom. The film will reportedly be based on the real-life story of Navel Officer K.M. Nanavati. Rustom will feature Ileana D’Cruz as the female lead.
