According to reports, Bachchhan Paandey is a remake of the Tamil film Jigarthanda. Karthik Subbaraj directed the original film, which was a box office success. Akshay plays a mobster and Kirti plays a journalist in this action comedy. Jacqueline Fernandez, Pankaj Tripathi, Prateik Babbar, and Gourav Chopra also play important roles in the film.
Akshay Kumar revealed in January that the film will be released on March 18 in theatres. Sharing a poster of the film at the time, Akshay wrote, “Action Comedy Romance Drama L-O-A-D-I-N-G this Holi! #SajidNadiadwala’s #BachchanPandey in cinemas on 18th March 2022. Directed by @farhadsamji.”
A few months ago, in a chat with Pinkvilla, Kriti revealed that the team had a ball shooting the film. “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,” the actress said.
