Career of the Kriti Sanon is on the rise at the moment. She can be seen as a game changer in Bollywood at the moment. Several movies have been signed by Kriti in the recent past. Next, Kriti is expected to be seen in Mimi where she is playing role of a surrogate mother. Later on, she is going to do a movie titled Hum Do Hamare Do with Rajkummar Rao. It is a romantic comedy. In addition to both these movies, Kriti has Akshay Kumar starrer Bachchan Pandey in her sleeves. Recently, Kriti has also signed Bhediya opposite Varun Dhawan.
Previously, it has been heard that Kriti will be playing role of a journalist in Bachchan Pandey. However, the speculations have been found to be untrue now. She is expected to be seen in a very different role. According to a source, “Bachchan Pandey is actually a remake of Jigarthanda that starred Bobby Simha, Lakshmi Menon and Siddharth. The makers Sajid Nadiadwala had been planning to initially remake the film with a different cast and at that point, Bachchan Pandey was supposed to be remake of Veeram. Now, the whole script has changed and they have reversed the gender of Siddharth’s role in the remake.”
Later on, our source has added “Not a journalist, Kriti will be playing a director who meets a dreaded gangster as part of her research on a film on gangsterism. Kriti will actually play the same role as essayed by Siddharth in the original. Akki plays Bobby’s part whereas a leading lady will be roped in as his love interest in the film. Keeping the essence of the film, the makers have tweaked the script a bit and adapted it into a Hindi screenplay.”
