The credit of establishing Akshay Kumar as one of the most bankable actors in comedy genre goes to Priyadarshan and the veteran filmmaker revealed they are collaborating again for a film which would be a laugh riot. The director-actor duo, who has given blockbuster comedies like ‘Hera Pheri’, ‘Garam Masala’, ‘Bhool Bhulaiyaa’ and ‘De Dana Dana’, will start working on the project later next year. 

“It is a comedy. I’m currently writing it and will start working on it next year around September-October,” Priyadarshan shared with media in Mumbai. “Fortunately Akshay has not been doing many comedies. He did this ‘Housefull 4’ and it didn’t do really well, the way he wanted it to be,” he added. The filmmaker said after south superstar Mohanlal, with whom he has collaborated on 47 films, Akshay is the only actor he feels comfortable working with.“I’ve done so many films with him. I have done 47 films with Mohanlal and after him, Akshay became the most comfortable person for me to work with because he completely trusts me. He doesn’t ask what I’m making. He doesn’t want to know what I’m doing. He asks me ‘Sir are you excited?’ and I say ‘yes’ and we just start working. That confidence is there so I have a responsibility towards him. He trusts me so much that I make sure it works. That trust works well for us. He always says he learns a lot while working with me. His body language has become better. He has evolved a lot. We did ‘Khatta Meetha’ and after that he started playing a lot of these middle class characters like ‘Padman’ and others.”
