Actor Pankaj Tripathi has joined the cast of Bachchan Pandey. The film, directed by Farhad Samji, stars Akshay Kumar and Kriti Sanon in the lead roles, alongside Jacqueline Fernandez and Arshad Warsi. 

This is Pankaj’s third collaboration with producer Sajid Nadiadwala (after Super 30 and ‘83) and his first with Akshay. 

A source close to the development said, “While Kriti and Pankaj have worked earlier in Lukka Chuppi. Pankaj and Akshay will be teaming up for the first time. Both are known for their comic timing and unusual choices and one cannot wait to see the creativity of both these actors on screen.” 

Pankaj will join the cast at Jaisalmer in January. He will apparently essay a pivotal role that will add a lot of humour to the storyline. “It’s a huge ensemble cast which will be shooting together for 90 days; it’s going to be a roller coaster ride,” the source said. 

In Bachchan Pandey, Akshay portrays a gangster while Kriti plays a journalist. The twist occurs when the two meet and discover their common passion for cinema. The film is set for release in 2021.
