Akshay and Paresh Rawal in Priyadarshan's next!
The pair is back for Priyadarshan's next!

The hilarious comedy pair will have you gasping for your breath again very soon all thanks to director Priyadarshan. The director’s untitled next, under Rohit Shetty’s production, will star Akshay Kumar and Paresh Rawal. The film will be an out and out comedy and the shooting will begin from April 2017.

The Priyadarshan-Akshay-Paresh Rawal trio had delivered many hits together like Hera Pheri, Garam Masala, Bhagam Bhaag, Bhool Bhulaiyaa and De Dana Dan. Once again, they are set to bring back all the fun.

Akki has never worked with Rohit Shetty earlier. This seems to be quite an excitement for the audience. A source close to the director confirmed the news and also revealed details of Akki’s role in the movie. “Akshay will play a loud, fun-loving Punjabi character in Rohit’s production. The shooting will start from April next year and take place in Mumbai and Punjab. Paresh has been busy with politics ever since he won the Lok Sabha ticket for the BJP and has done very few films, but he and Priyan are friends, so the actor is making time for this film. He plays a pivotal role in the film.”

Director Priyadarshan too confirmed everything. “The film is being written by me and Chennai Express writer – Yunus. The actress is yet to be finalized. After three years of break, I made Oppam (2016), which is the biggest hit of my career. Its success is so inspiring. It’s time to come to Bollywood again.”

Paresh and Akki were last seen in the 2012 movie OMG: Oh My God. Priyadarshan’s last directorial was Rangrezz starring Jacky Bhagnani, which failed miserably at the Box Office and the director took sabbatical from Bollywood soon after.

Apart from his untitled next, talks of Hera Pheri 3 with Akshay-Rawal seems to be in talks too, which has been stalled currently due to the backing out of Abhishek Bachchan from the project.
