Looks like it's raining biopics in Bollywood and Khiladi Akshay Kumar is next in line to be a part of this growing trend. According to reports another biopic on the life of famous magician PC Sorkar is in the pipeline and Akshay Kumar has been roped in to play the lead role. Set to be directed by 'Gulaab Gang' filmmaker Soumik Sen, this film will add to the increasing list of bipoics in Bollywood.
Akshay Kumar is known to experiment with roles and so he said in an interview after the release of 'The Shaukeens'. While he played an altered version of himself in the remake of the 1982 comedy,
Akshay will soon be seen surrounded by action stunts in the forthcoming 'Baby'. Though reports are not fully confirmed, it would be interesting to watch him essay the role of a magician.
'Bhaag Milkha Bhaag' and 'Mary Kom' are the previous biopics that gave Farhan Akhtar and Priyanka Chopra a chance to garner critical acclaim. Their performance in these biopics was much loved and the same can be expected from Akshay in this next untitled project. Leaving the performance aside, the biopics have also proven to be a hit at the box-office and so we should expect more of this from filmmakers in the near future.
