Akshay Kumar has shared two new posters and the release date for his much-awaited action-comedy, Bachchan Pandey, which also stars Kriti Sanon in the lead. Directed by Farhad Samji and produced by Sajid Nadiadwala, Bachchan Pandey will hit screens on Holi, March 18.

Taking to his social media handles, Akshay shared the posters, tweeting, “Action Comedy Romance Drama L-O-A-D-I-N-G this Holi! #SajidNadiadwala’s #BachchanPandey in cinemas on 18th March 2022. Directed by @farhadsamji.”

In the first poster, Akshay had looked menacing in an edgy avatar. His intense look is complemented with the new posters featuring a smoldering Akshay Kumar looking ready for action, and a poster of him atop a tractor with an army of men equally ready to roll.

Jacqueline Fernandez, Arshad Warsi, Pankaj Tripathi, Prateik Babbar, Abhimanyu Singh and others are also in the cast. The film has music by Tanishk Bagchi.

The film is interesting because when it was (initially) planned as a Christmas 2020 release, Aamir Khan had requested them to defer the movie so as not to clash with his Laal Singh Chaddha on the same date. However, the pandemic put a spanner in both the films’ works.

Farhad Samji is part of the famous erstwhile Sajid-Farhad duo that also turned directors with It’s Entertainment starring Akshay in 2013 and later directed his Housefull 3. From then on, Farhad decided to go it alone as a director (Housefull 4) and writer. Farhad has also co-written his home production Laxmii, which released on OTT in 2020 and Simmba, in which Akshay had a cameo, besides Sooryavanshi. Boss (another Akshay home production) and Housefull 2 were other films in which Farhad-Sajid were involved as writers.
