Speculations over Akshay Kumar’s leading lady in his upcoming co-production Khiladi 786 can now be put to rest. While Nargis Fakhri and Diana Penty were being considered for the role, Mirror has learnt that Asin has been finalised as the spunky younger sister of Mithun Chakraborty’s character in the film.
A source told Mirror, “Though Nargis Fakhri was being considered for it, the makers felt that she wouldn’t suit the role of Mithunda’s younger sister. Akshay and Himesh Reshammiya, were keen on having Asin on board. She has been a part of various blockbusters, including Ghajini, Ready and Housefull 2. All these films have earned over Rs 100 crore.”
Interestingly, Asin signed the project last Friday, a day before the film went on floors. However, the actress will join the shoot only next week.
Apart from Akshay and Asin in the lead roles, the film will also see Mithun Chakraborty essaying the role of a don Tatya Tukaram Tendulkar. Paresh Rawal as Champaklal and Himesh as Mansukh play matchmakers. While Raj Babbar will essay the role of Akki’s father Sattar Singh.
The film is directed by Rohit Shetty’s associate Ashish R Mohan and will hit the theatres on December 7.
Despite repeated attempts, Himesh and Akshay remained unavailable for comment.
