Akshay Kumar will have no leading lady to romance on screen in his upcoming film, a remake of Malayalam film Pokkiri Raja.
Pokiri Raja (2910) featured Mammootty, Prithviraj and Shriya Sharan in the lead. In the Hindi remake, Akshay reprises the role played by Mammootty in the original. Two newcomers play the roles of Prithvi and Shriya.
The film tentatively titled Naam Hai Boss is being produced by Akshay Kumar in association with a big production house. The script for the Hindi remake is being written by Sajid-Farhad. The film will be directed by Anthony D’Souza who earlier made Blue. The film goes on floors in September and is being planned for a summer 2013.
This is the first time in a long span of 21 years, Akshay Kumar is acting in a film without a heroine paired with him.
