Akshay Kumar's Kanchana remake titled Laxmi, to go on floors next week
Directed by Raghava Lawrence, the horror-comedy will feature Akshay in the role of a cowardly man possessed by a ghost
Akshay Kumar and Kiara Advani are set to star in the Hindi adaptation of Raghava Lawrence's popular Kanchana franchise. Slated to go on floors next week, the horror-comedy has been titled Laxmi. The shoot is expected to begin with a dance number called Bismillah. Akshay will wrap up the first schedule by the end of the month, before heading over to shoot for Rohit Shetty's Sooryavanshi.
Laxmi is being helmed by Lawrence himself. The choreographer-turned-filmmaker has written, starred in and directed all four films in the Kanchana/Muni franchise so far. The latest instalment, Muni 4: Kanchana 3, is slated for release on April 19.
Last seen in Kesari, Akshay Kumar has multiple projects lined up this year, including Good News, Mission Mangal and Housefull 4. The actor made his Tamil debut last year in Shankar's 2.0, starring Rajinikanth.
