Indian cinema is endevouring to surpass its content standards by adapting content that carries a great weight. With the advent of social driven dramas and biopics, the filmmakers are oscillating between these spheres of content that gambles to connect the audience emotionally, mentally and intellectually without having to perturb the Indian sensibilities.

After the success of Pad Man, Akshay Kumar and R Balki's collaboration for a film based on India's Mars mission that marks the former's reunion with Vidya Balan after 11 years, had grabbed headlines across media platforms.

However, Akshay and R Balki are back in the news for yet another reason. Besides Mangalyaan, the duo is reportedly teaming up for yet another woman-centric film titled Mahila Mandal, which will mark their second women centric film after Pad Man.

Commenting about the development, a source informed a leading daily, "The film is being called Mahila Mandal. In keeping with its title, it revolves around women. Nonetheless, the role that Akshay plays is of immense significance."

Well, if the reports turn out to be true, it would be interesting to see Akshay Kumar in a woman-centric film yet again. An official confirmation on the same is awaited from R Balki and Akshay Kumar.

Meanwhile, Akshay Kumar's journey with socially-relevant films began in 2016 with films like Airlift followed by Jolly LLB2 (2017), Toilet: Ek Prem Katha (2017) and Pad Man (2018). Ever since then, the actor has made a mark for himself in social driven movies.

As of now, Akshay Kumar is busy with the shoot of Sajid Nadiadwala's Housefull 4. His forthcoming film will be Karan Johar's Good News, which will star him opposite Kareena Kapoor Khan.
