Speaking about Bachchan Pandey, Akshay essays the role of a gangster who aspires to an actor in this Sajid Nadiadwala production. On the other hand, Kriti Sanon will be playing a journalist. Earlier in one of her interviews, Kriti had said that this entertainer is a complete package with comedy, action and drama.
While speaking with Pinkvilla, Kriti had also shared her experience of working with Akshay again after Housefull 4 and said, "He's constantly having fun, and likes people to also have fun. We would play games like Tambola and all, and even the people who were serving food there, the people from the hotel would also join in. He's like a people's person. He likes involving everyone who's there, whether it's a costume person, makeup person or anyone on sets. He brings people together and that's amazing."
Besides Akshay Kumar and Kriti Sanon, Bachchan Pandey helmed by Sajid-Farhad also stars Jacqueline Fernandez, Arshad Warsi, Pankaj Tripathi and Prateik Babbar in pivotal roles.
