Tamil director Murugadoss has taken his next script for a Hindi film to Akshay Kumar and is all set to direct his second Hindi film two years after the all-time highest grosser Ghajini.
Akshay’s close friend and business associate Vipul Shah who’s currently producing the Hindi version of the Telugu hit Kaakha Kaakha with John Abraham will produce Murugadoss’s second Hindi film.
No stone is being left unturned to make sure the Akshay-Murugadoss team comes up with a whammy as big as Ghajini. Though tight-lipped about the project, Vipul Shah is all set to spend whopping Rs 20-25 crores on the action sequences alone.
Akshay’s brief to the director. "I’ve a reputation for delivering stunts. Make sure the action rocks."
Unlike Ghajini, Murugadoss’ second film is not a remake of one of his Tamil-Telugu hits. Speaking from Chennai the shy diminutive director says, "Yes, my screenplay for the film with Akshay Kumar is an original, not a remake of one of my Tamil films. Like Ghajini, it is basically a love story with a strong action base."
The film starts shooting in January 2011.
