Superstar Akshay Kumar will now remake Tamil blockbuster Kanchana 2 in Hindi. Akshay has once remade a horror comedy by the name of Bhool Bhulaiyaa which was inspired from Tamil film Chandramukhi starring Rajinikanth in the lead. It is a nature of entertainment industry to manufacture cause after the effect and than make it into a formula. Success of horror comedy Golmaal Again has inspired many people to do the same and Akshay is no different. Akshay already has a comedy franchise in hand by the name of Housefull, which is all geared up for a 4th part with reincarnation comedy and is promising to be the most expensive comedy film of all time.
Kanchana 2 came in 2015 and swept the box office by earning a phenomenal 120 crores. Raghav Lawrence plays the male lead in the film and has a double role while rest of the star cast includes Taapsee Pannu and Nithya Menon in important roles. Akshay will be playing the role played by Raghav Lawrence in the original though double role deatil is not confirmed yet. Kanchana 2 was already remade once in Kannada in 2016 by the name of Kalpana 2.
Akshay Kumar has the best track record with comedy in India and has delivered blockbusters like Hera Pheri and Welcome. Horror comedy trend is surely keeping up big time as Rajkumar Rao is currently shooting for one with Shraddha Kapoor called Stree, which will release later this year. Film is certainly a multi-starrer like the one Priyadarshan use to make and Akshay exceled with his comic timing in those films. Rest of the cast details are not out as of yet as Akshay is currently geared up for his upcoming release Padman. Akshay was also suppose to start shooting for Gulshan Kumar biopic Mogul but he has returned the signing amount and news has it that Aamir might play the part.
