Akshay Kumar to play a double role in Kaththi remake

We have told you few months back that Akshay Kumar will reunite with his 'Holiday' director AR Murugadoss for the remake of the filmmaker's 2014 Tamil action-drama 'Kaththi'. They first collaborated for the official remake of Tamil hit 'Thuppakki'. Both the original films had featured South superstar Vijay in the lead.

'Kaththi' featured Vijay in a double role - as a petty thief and a postgraduate with staunch communist ideologies. "Murugadoss is presently re-scripting the film to fit a more North Indian set-up but Akshay will be seen in a double role," as reported by Mirror, adding that the original story revolved around the issue of farmers committing suicide due to corporate encroachment.

Re-titled 'Ikka,' the official remake will roll in August 2016 with a start-to-finish two-month schedule. "The story will travel through Kolkata, Chennai, Mumbai and Bangkok, but will be filmed entirely in Chennai," adds the source.
