Since some days, rumours of Amitabh Bachchan and Akshay Kumar reuniting for R Balki’s upcoming film have been going viral. A Mumbai tabloid carried these rumours and the news spread like wildfire. Now, filmmaker R Balki has come out in the open and quashed these rumours outright.
Speaking to an entertainment website, Balki said, “I’ve been busy with my wife Gauri Shinde’s film ‘Dear Zindagi’. Taking advantage of my unavailability a section of the media has gone berserk. I had no clue that this is been going on behind my back. When I started getting messages and calls asking about my film with Amitji and Akshay, I was like…thanks for telling me about it.”
He also went on record to admit that he has not thought of a project after ‘Dear Zindagi’ which is directed by his wife Gauri Shinde. Said Balki, After ‘Dear Zindagi’, I will start thinking about what I will do next. At the moment all I know is it will be a movie with living actors. Not an animation film. And it won’t be about demonetization. Nor will it be about a filmmaker’s husband nearly dying of nervousness as he waits for the release of his wife’s film.”
So, for now we will have to forego the excitement of seeing Big B with Khiladi Kumar on the big screen again.
