Akshay Kumar seems to be on a film signing spree. Every other day he is making big announcements about Holi, Diwali, Christmas and nearly every other holiday releases. After much speculation, he announced the remake of Anushka Shetty starrer Bhaagamathie with Bhumi Pednekar in the lead titled Durgavati while Ashok will be the director. He had helmed the original as well. The film will be produced by Adundantia Entertainment, Cape Of Good Hope Films and T-Series.Thank You, Bhumi Pednekar! Your Little White Dress and Heels Are on Our Lust List This Weekend!
Now all those who have watched the original or have seen the trailer, are aware that Bhaagamathie is from the horror thriller space. So Bhumi will be seen in a role that she hasn't done before. But what will Akshay Kumar do in it? Well, he is presenter!

As per Akshay's tweet, the film will go on the floors from mid-January. Staying away from the norm, he hasn't announced a release date though. Anyway, there are reports that the actor will have a cameo in the film too. Well, we will only know when we see!
