AkshayJust last year Akshay Kumar was asked why he hadn’t worked with Karan Johar yet. He answered: “Karan Johar doesn’t take me in his films. He probably thinks I’m not good enough.”

And just a few months later we can gladly announce that Akshay Kumar and Karan Johar have joined hands to produce a film, which will be directed by Punit Malhotra.

Besides being one of the producers, Akshay will also play one of the leads in this two-hero movie. The other male lead will be revelead shortly.

Karan Johar doesn’t want to say much about the movie but he revealed, “The movie is mainstream and has a very strong underlying social message. It’s solid and hard-hitting.”

Punit Malhotra presented the script to Karan and he immediately approached Akshay, who was equally thrilled with the idea. “If Dharma Productions has to collaborate with Akshay, then it has to be the right kind of film.”

Akshay adds: “We’re two very passionate producers with one great aim — to entertain. Both Karan and I want to make our fathers proud. Cheers to our new venture.”

For Karan, this association is not only a professional one but also an emotional one. “This association is not just professional, but also emotional. I’ve known Tina (Twinkle Khanna) since the age of four. I’m so excited that she and my mother are co-producers.”

Shooting for this film is scheduled for early next year. Before that director Punit Malhotra will first start shooting his new film Gori Tere Pyaar Mein, starring Imran Khan and Kareena Kapoor.
