Akshay Kumar is always on the look-out for directorial and acting talent. Recently he worked with Kriti Sanon in Housefull 4 which was a blockbuster. Now reports say it’s Kriti’s younger sister Nupur Sanon who we hear is all set to share the marquee with Akshay in Nikhil Advani’s period thriller Bell Bottom.
The very pretty Nupur who is also a singer recently did a music video where Akshay Kumar played the romantic lead opposite her.
“Nikhil Advani liked the chemistry between Akshay and Nupur in the music video that they did together for the song ‘Filhaal’. It was only a matter of time before they were cast together,” says the source.
However, Nikhil denies the reports of Nupur Sanon and earlier, Mrunal Kulkarni opposite Akshay in Bell Bottom.
Says Nikhil, “The decision on the female lead in Bell Bottom will be taken after the director Ranjit Tiwary will return from his recce abroad.”
