Akshay Kumar and Bhumi Pednekar will soon be reuniting for a film called Durgavati.

The Saand Ki Aankh actor will soon be entering the scary-thriller zone with her next which will be presented by Akshay Kumar.

Bhumi as well as Akshay took to social media to announce the project, and express their excitement about the film.

“I have waited so long to share this one with you. So excited to announce my next film ‘Durgavati’. A scary-thriller going on floor mid-January. Thank you Akshay Kumar sir for your constant belief in me. I am so excited for this one @bhushankumar @ivikramix. I can’t wait to collaborate with you Ashok sir. This one comes with great responsibility. Need all your blessings,” Bhumi posted on her official Instagram handle.

The movie will be directed by Ashok. The news was announced with a photograph where Bhumi is seen holding placard of hero, Akshay and Bhushan Kumar of being presenters, along with the director and the producer placards respectively.

What stood out was the photograph that sees a mainstream hero on the sidelines, though helming the bandwagon of official ‘hero’ presentation,  in an industry that has given immense importance to hero worship.

Akshay also took to his Instagram handle to shared news about the film and wrote, “Excited to announce Bhumi Pednekar in and as ‘Durgavati’. A scary-thriller, going on floor mid-January. Presented by Cape Of Good Films and Bhushan Kumar, produced by @ivikramix and directed by Ashok. Need your love and luck.”

Bhumi thanked her Toilet: Ek Prem Katha co-star for believing in her.

Pednekar has had a great year at the box office with films like Saand Ki Aankh, Bala and Pati Patni Aur Woh.

She also has projects such as Vicky Kaushal’s Bhoot: Part One – The Haunted Ship and Karan Johar’s Takht for next year.
