“I was about to make a movie but Akshay Kumar came with the same subject, so I had to back out” Rajkumar Santoshi

MUMBAI: Indeed, we have missed one of the finest filmmakers Rajkumar Santoshi. The director was last seen with his movie Phata Poster Nikhla Hero, which had Shahid Kapoor and Ileana D'Cruz in the leading role. It has been 10 years and now the director is back with his upcoming movie Gandhi Godse Ek Yudh.

In an exclusive interaction with TellyChakkar, director Rajkumar Santoshi spoke about the gap and said that it was not a deliberate one but it just happened. Initially, he had a movie plan with Randeep Hooda and the title of the movie was Battle of Saragarhi. But later, actor Akshay Kumar came up with the same subject titled Kesari, under the banner of Dharma Productions. Hence unfortunately, he had to cancel the movie.

But later, when he saw the movie, he believed that the subject required more attention and it did not get the justice it deserved. So, the filmmaker said that now he is planning to work on the same subject and take Randeep Hooda once again. The team will definitely start the project, maybe next year, 2024.

What are your views on this? Do you think Akshay Kumar delivered justice with the movie Kesari? Also, how excited are you to see the same story with the point of view of Rajkumar Santoshi? Do let us know in the comment section below.
