New Delhi: Akshay Kumar has unveiled the trailer of his upcoming film, Bachchhan Paandey. The actor is back in a never seen before avatar of a colourful character, as he plays a cruel gangster with a stone eye. The makers dropped the high-voltage trailer on his birthday, making it extra special. Starring superstar Akshay Kumar in and as ‘Bachchhan Paandey’, the highly-anticipated action comedy is all set to release in theatres this Holi, March 18, 2022.
Bachchhan Paandey trailer:
The trailer begins with an introduction to Myra Devekar, portrayed by Kriti Sanon, who wants to make a film on a gangster named Bachchhan Paandey and convinces her friend Vishu, played by Arshad Warsi, to accompany her on her mission. Bachchhan Paandey is shown as a deadly gangster, who is always on a killing spree. He is said to have murdered his own girlfriend Sophie (Jacqueline Fernandez) though the trailer hints at a twist in the plot. Kriti’s filmmaking plans seem to take a dangerous turn as Bachchhan Paandey learns their hidden truth and is in no mood to spare them.
Producer Sajid Nadiadwala said, “This film is special to me for many reasons. Bachchhan Paandey marks Akshay Kumar’s tenth film with Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment, and Jacqueline’s eighth film under the banner. It’s also a proud moment for me because we launched Kriti Sanon with Heropanti and she has delivered a rock solid performance in this film. Farhad Samji is an extremely talented director and after several successful films together I’m hoping we have another winner on our hands.”
Audiences can also expect great performances from this one with a powerful line up of talent including Kriti Sanon, Pankaj Tripathi, Sanjay Mishra, Abhimanyu Singh, Arshad Warsi and Jacqueline Fernandez.
“It’s always a pleasure to collaborate with Sajid Nadiadwala. He and I go back years, we were friends long before we became actor-producer. And one can only imagine what fun it is to work with friends. Bachchhan Paandey is my tenth film with him and audiences can expect ten times the entertainment with this one,” quipped Akshay Kumar.
Adding more, director Farhad Samji said, “This is my fourth collaboration with Akshay Kumar and all I can say is the audience has never witness this side of him before in a film. I share great creative synergy with Sajid Nadiadwala. He gives you the space to improvise and always aims for the highest production value… so working with him is the best experience one could ask for. To sum it up Bachchan panndey says mujhe bhai nahi Godfather bolte hai…lekin mere liye Sajid sir and akshay sir dono mere bhai bhi hai aur Godfather bhi.”
Bachchhan Paandey is written by Nischay Kuttanda, directed by Farhad Samji and is said to be a remake of the 2014 Tamil film Jigarthanda. Produced by Sajid Nadiadwala, Bachchhan Paandey is set to hit theatres on March 18.
