Post Veere Di Wedding, Kareena Kapoor Khan is reportedly set to reunite with actor Akshay Kumar in a Karan Johar production after 9 long years. The duo were last seen together in Kambakkht Ishq which released in the year 2009.
It is reported that Akshay and Kareena will be paired opposite each other in a film to be directed by director Raj Mehta. The film is expected to go on floors in November this year since Akshay Kumar has to wrap up his shoot for Housefull 4. The story of the film is said to revolve around a married couple who are trying to have a baby.
A source close to a popular daily and entertainment portal said, “The makers have roped in Akshay Kumar to play the male lead. The story is about two couples and they were looking for a senior actor opposite Bebo. Akshay was their first choice and he loved the script. He discussed the film with Karan, and the modalities were worked out immediately. When Karan told Bebo they were casting Akshay opposite her, she was extremely happy. Both of them have been great friends and their reunion on screen was only a matter of time. Filming begins in November, after Akshay wraps up work on Housefull 4. Bebo also wanted a few months break in between to spend some time with her son Taimur. So, the team has worked out everything already.”
Previously, Kareena made a special appearance in Brothers (2015) which starred Akshay Kumar and was produced by Karan Johar under the banner of Dharma Productions. The actors are now all set to reunite with full fledged roles in the film.
The actors had earlier collaborated in films like Tashan, Bewafaa and Aitraaz in their Bollywood careers.
