Superstar Akshay Kumar is set to collaborate again with filmmaker Neeraj Pandey for his next, ‘Rustom’.

The romantic-thriller will be Akshay and ‘A Wednesday’ director Pandey’s third film after their 2013 movie ‘Special 26’ and this year’s espionage-action thriller ‘Baby’.

The ‘Brothers’ actor, who celebrates his 48th birthday today, took to Twitter to announce the news.

"Thrilled to announce Neeraj Pandey & I are collaborating for a romantic thriller #Rustom releasing on Aug 12, 2016! Hoping to be third time lucky…"

The actor rang in his birthday with a late night dinner with wife, Twinkle Khanna.

She wished him on his birthday and shared a picture of the duo.

"All set for the birthday boy’s dinner #happybirthday."

Akshay will be next seen in Prabhudheva’s action-comedy ‘Singh Is Bliing’ and Raja Krishna Menon’s ‘Airlift’, which also stars ‘The Lunchbox’ actress Nimrat Kaur.

Pandey is currently working on Indian captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s biopic, ‘MS Dhoni: The Untold Story’, starring Sushant Singh Rajput in the titular role.
