It’s 20 something Kriti for 40-plus Akshay Kumar in Singh Is Bling
Bollywood will never grow up. At least in terms of age-gap between the lead pair.
And yet another addition to this ‘mis-match’ trend is by the usual suspect Akshay Kumar. The 46-year-old actor will pair up with 24-year-old Kriti Sanon in Prabhu Dheva’s next.
Akshay Kumar has mostly paired up with younger actresses like Sonakshi Sinha, Kajal Aggarwal, Asin and Tammanah
According to the latest buzz, Heropanti actress Kriti Sanon has been roped in as the lead actress for Akshay Kumar-starrer Singh Is Bling.
Earlier, it was reported that Kareena Kapoor will play the female lead in the Prabhu Dheva directed film.
The film will be shot extensively in parts of Africa and South Africa. The film takes off in November and Kriti plays a dancer in the film.
A source close to the film told a leading daily that Kriti’s tall, slim figure and dancer-like structure fitted the bill.
“It is a very different film and required a different heroine. Akshay saw Heropanti and liked Kriti. And it was he who suggested she’d be apt for the part,” the source added.
Well, it seems like the trend of old heroes-young heroines will continue until Shah Rukh, Salman, Aamir, Akshay and Rajinikanth stop acting.
