The makers were trying to find someone who could match Akshay Kumar’s comic timing, and that they narrowed down on Arshad Warsi, who, over the years, has aced this space.


Actor Arshad Warsi has come on board for Akshay Kumar-starrer “Bachchan Pandey,” the producers announced on Saturday. Warsi, known for movies like “Munna Bhai” and “Golmaal” series, will essay the superstar’s friend’s role.


Actor Kriti Sanon will be playing a journalist role who wishes to be a director in the “Bachchan Pandey.” “The producers were searching for an actor for the past few months who could match comical timing of Akshay, and finally they selected Arshad Warsi.”The first time we can see the unlimited comedy of Akshay Kumar and Arshad Warsi together in Bachchan Pandey. His (Arshad) path is primary to the story, with many shades and a different look,” the producers said in an interview. Farhad Samji will direct the movie, and he is known for “Housefull 4”.


The Sajid Nadiadwala production said the shoot would begin in Jaisalmer in January and finish in March. However, Arshad Warsi is presently working in “Durgamati,” produced by Bhushan Kumar, Vikram Malhotra, and Akshay Kumar. And this film will stream on Amazon Prime from December 11.
