Akshay Kumar, the popular Bollywood actor in the film industry has been working hard to make an impressive mark at the box-office in South. He wanted to expand his origins and made his debut with the film 2.O. Akshay Kumar's performance was recognized by everyone and he also received acclaims for the same.
Now, he is all set to join hands with the director Shankar again for his next film, which is the sequel for the super hit 1994 movie Bharateeyudu. Apparently, Akshay Kumar was not the first choice for playing the villain in the film.
The makers initially wanted Ajay Devgan to play the role but since he got busy with the prior commitments, the makers approached Akshay who instantly jumped on to the project.
Kamal Haasan and Kajal Aggarwal are now playing the leads in the movie.
