Akshay Kumar and Karan Johar were supposed to team up for actioner Gutka, but things couldn’t materialize and Akki decided not to do the film. But the star and the producer are planning to do another film together. What it’s going to be like?
Akshay is learnt to be not that happy with the way Gutka was shaping up, but that hasn’t rubbed Karan Johar in a wrong way, instead he is quite gung-ho about working with Akki. "We are making a film with Akshay for sure. The subject is going through some changes. But Akshay and I are working together for sure. And we will make the announcement soon," Karan is quoted as saying.
Karan Johar and Akshay Kumar have never worked together in any film, but as a producer he is willing to try out different genres and would love to cast Akki in one of his films soon. Karan did confirm this in an interview. When asked if he is not doing 'Gutka', Karan said, “It might be another film (with Akki).”
Meanwhile, director Punit Malhotra was at the helm of affairs for Gutka, and described it as a full on drama film, something that fits Akki’s bindaas onscreen persona to a T. But right now the movie seems on the backburner with Akshay backing out.
