The superhit jodi of Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif have many blockbusters to their credit. However, the two have not been seen on the big screen post Tees Maar Khan (2010) much to the dismay of their fans, who’ve loved them in films like Namastey London and Singh Is Kinng. But looks like the wait to see them sizzle on screen back again may be a short-lived one! Yes, there’s good news in store for Akshay-Kat fans. The actress is said to be in talks with filmmaker Rohit Shetty and may soon be locked in for the Akshay Kumar starrer cop action caper Sooryavanshi.
While there’s buzz of Jacqueline Fernandes doing the film, insiders reveals that it’s Katrina Kaif who the makers think shares better chemistry with Akshay. An insider says, “If things work out then Katrina may soon be on board opposite Akshay in Sooryavanshi. Akshay and Katrina make a hot pair and their chemistry is undeniable. The pair is magic onscreen and still get the trade excited and buzzing. So it’s a great combo to watch out for and the makers would want to bring them together on screen.” As for the rumours of Jacqueline being roped in the source says that she may be in talks with the makers but it’s most likely not for Sooryavanshi.
However, insiders also say that it will be the dates and their availability that will be the final deciding factor. “Katrina and Akshay both have a busy year ahead and it may not be easy to co-ordinate their dates as easily. Akshay has already allocated his dates, so now Katrina’s dates will have to be worked around that,” says the insider. In the months ahead, Akshay has the highy-anticipated Holi release Kesari (March 21), Housefull 4, Mission Mangal and he is currently shooting for Good News. Katrina meanwhile has the Salman Khan starrer Bharat slated for an Eid release this year.
