Filmmaker Priyadarshan has confirmed that he will soon be reuniting with Akshay Kumar for a comedy film, adding that he has been delayed for a few months. They will begin work on the film in September next year, the filmmaker has said.
Akshay and Priyadarshan have worked together on various films, including blockbuster comedies such as Hera Pheri, Garam Masala, Bhool Bhulaiyaa, and De Dana Dan.
Priyadarshan told the Mumbai Mirror: “I was planning a serious movie with Akshay to begin with until he pointed out that people would expect a comedy from us. We were supposed to start in December, but now it’s only going to be released around September next year. It will be produced by Akshay. “
He also reiterated that it is not part of the third installment of Hera Pheri. “I am not involved with Hera Pheri 3, I have told the creators that I am not interested. A lot of people think I did Part 2 too, but that wasn’t my movie either, “he told the tabloid.
Speaking of Akshay last year, Priyadarshan told PTI: “I have made 47 films with Mohanlal and after him Akshay became the most comfortable person to work with because he completely trusts me. It doesn’t ask what I’m doing. You don’t want to know what I’m doing. He asks me ‘Sir, are you excited?’ and I say “yes” and we just get to work. That trust is there, so I have a responsibility to him. Trust me so much that I make sure it works. That trust works well for us. He always says that he learns a lot while working with me. His body language has improved. It has evolved a lot. We did Khatta Meetha and after that he started playing a lot of these middle class characters like Padman and others. “

Priyadarshan recently completed Hungama 2. The film marks his first Hindi-language film after 2013’s Rangrezz. Hungama 2, he said, is not a direct sequel to the 2003 film, but has a “same spirit.” The first film featured Akshaye Khanna, Rimi Sen, Aftab Shivdasani, Paresh Rawal, Rajpal Yadav, among others.
