Parineeti Chopra will be working with Akshay Kumar for the first time in a period film titled Kesari. In an interview with Hindustan Times, the actress shared her excitement of working with Akshay and romancing him on screen. About working with the Khiladi Kumar, Pari said, “Akshay sir is as excited as any other actor on the set. He is happy to be there and he make that extra effort to make everyone around him comfortable. I can expect it from the newer boys, but he is a veteran and doesn’t really need to go out of his way to make actresses or crew comfortable and happy, yet he does. So, within the first few days you realise he is a beautiful person.”
She added, “My biggest chunk of the shoot is going to be in December, that’s when I will know how it feels when I have to romance him.” While her cousin Priyanka Chopra has worked with Akshay Kumar several times, this is the first time Pari will be seen with him on screen. Kesari is based on the Battle of Saragarhi and it is being helmed by Anurag Singh. It will be produced by Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions. The film will hit the screens next year.
Apart from this, the actress will be seen with her Ishaqzaade co-star Arjun Kapoor in Dibakar Banerjee’s Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar. Arjun and Pari were seen this year in Namaste England, which failed to impress the audience.
