Says a source close to Khiladi Kumar, "Akshay loved the script, which has been penned by Rohit Dhawan. It's a young and cool movie, which stars John and Akshay " the hottest hunks in B-Town today and is scheduled to roll mid-2010."
The source adds that both the actors are expected to show off their toned bodies in the film. Says the source, "Akshay is not sparing any money or effort to make sure that the untitled flick becomes one of the biggest and costliest films of 2010. Also, the film will be shot abroad at some exotic locales that have never been explored before."
Rohit was to make his directorial debut with Come On Pappu, to be by Percept and Akshay Kumar's production company, Hari Om Productions. The film focused on the relationship between a chimp and the lead character (played by Akshay) and was to star Sonam Kapoor as the lead heroine. The film also had Ranbir Kapoor, Salman Khan and others in special appearances.
The source says, "Carry On Pappu has been on hold for some time but Akshay didn't want Rohit's career to come to a halt. He loved Rohit's rom-com script and decided to produce it himself along with Studio 18." He adds, "Few people know that Akshay has got a kind heart. He has often gone out of his way to help those who had helped him when he started his career. Besides, he has not forgotten that David has given him one of the biggest hits of his career Mujhse Shaadi Karogi."
