Confirming the development, Taurani says, "Yes we have signed on Akshay to play the lead role in the film, while it has been written and will be directed by Sajid and Farhad. Both of them have proved themselves with five films they wrote for Rohit Shetty as well as Housefull 2. This film will mark their debut as directors. However, we have yet to finalize the female lead for the film."
When quizzed about the yet untitled film's story, Taurani adds, "The film will be an all out entertainer, but currently it is too early to say much more. We will be going on floors with the film this June."
