Akshay Kumar teams up with Priyadarshan again
No doubt Priyadarshan's Hera Pheri was a turning-point in Akshay Kumar's career .And never mind if their subsequent collaborations like De Dana Dan and Khatta Meetha didn't quite match up. Priyadarshan and Akshay are all set to team up again this June with a film that would have a great social resonance. Says a source, "So far Priyan's films with Akshay have all been time-pass comedies, and all of them have been remakes. This time Akshay has asked Priyan to do a film that has tremendous socio-political significance. Both Akshay and Priyan are done with remakes. So on Akshay's request Priyan is writing an original film this time." Priyadarshan confirms, "Yes, I am doing a hard-hitting subject with Akshay. I think we both need to move out of our comfort zones. My film this time with Akshay would be topical and original." Priyan says it would be his comeback into Bollywood.

Akshay Kumar finally made it to this couch for a coffee with one of the biggest directors of the industry who hasn’t signed him yet (He made sure he points that out!)

About not being on the show before, he says that he doesn’t want to create any controversy by saying something about someone. Simple and straight.
