Headlined by Akshay Kumar, Bachchan Pandey has roped in actress Jacqueline Fernandez, who is “super excited” to have joined the cast. “Super excited to join Sajid Nadiadwala’s Bachchan Pandey gang. My ‘Happy Place’ with Nadiad, Akshay and the whole crew at Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment,” she wrote while sharing the big news. Bachchan Pandey will be directed by Farhad Samji and produced by Sajid Nadiadwala.

Akshay’s titular character is a gangster, who aspires to be an actor while Kriti Sanon plays the role of a journalist, who harbours dreams of directing films. The two characters’ love for cinema turns out to be the point of connect in Bachchan Pandey. Last week, actor Arshad Warsi joined the cast of Bachchan Pandey, marking his first ever collaboration with Akshay Kumar. Arshad has been cast as Bachchan Pandey’s friend in the movie.
