Akshay Kumar's upcoming movie Mission Mangal directed by Jagan Shakti, which is also a multi-starrer that will hit theatres on Independence Day. New reports suggest that even before the release of his movie, Akshay has already joined hands with Jagan Shakti for a new film, the Hindi-remake of Tamil film Kaththi. The original had the South star Vijay headlining the film, titled Ikka.

As per a leading daily, the film is supposed to go on floors very soon, as it was delayed due to Mission Mangal's release. Kaththi was released in 2014, and the film saw Tamil superstar Vijay playing a double role Kathiresan and Jeevanantham, who fights for the rights of the farmers against the corrupt MNCs. It is also reported that the Hindi remake would have a few tweaks to match the sensibilities of the Hindi movie-watching audience. Talking about the film Jagan Shakti in an interview said, "It will resonate with the underprivileged section of the society. With my second directorial, I want to explore action which is presented in a sleek way."

Just last week, Akshay Kumar announced he would be seen in a new movie, Bachchan Pandey, which is slated for a Christmas 2020 release. It was also reported that Bachchan Pandey is a remake of another Tamil movie, Ajith-starrer Veeram. The film is helmed by Farhad Samji who also directed Akshay in Housefull 4.

Currently, Akshay Kumar's next film Mission Mangal is creating a huge buzz and it also features Vidya Balan, Taapsee Pannu, Sonakshi Sinha, Sharman Joshi, Nithya Menen and Kirti Kulhari. The film revolves around the team of scientists behind India's mission to Mars. Mission Mangal will also clash with John Abraham's Batla House on August 15.
