After a long wait, Karan Johar has finally revealed the name of his lead actress in Akshay Kumar starrer ‘Kesari’. Taking to Twitter, Karan revealed that Parineeti Chopra is the lead actress opposite Akshay and the film is all set to roll in January 2018. Karan shared the poster of ‘Kesari’ with a message which read as “The lead actress in #KESARI is ……..PARINEETI CHOPRA! @ParineetiChopra.”
Karanannounced Parineeti Chopra’s casting in his upcoming film Kesari with a picture of lead actor Akshay Kumar from the film, which was shared last week. Twitter was not forgiving and trolled KJo for sharing the update without Parineeti’s picture and with Akshay’s photo instead. A few hours later, Karan re-announced Parineeti’s casting (this time with her picture) and said: “Ok guys that was meant to be an image of Kesari whilst announcing the lead actress of the film. Clearly Twitter is quick to jump and attack! Apologies!!!!! This is to re announce the wonderfully talented Parineeti Chopra as lead cast of Kesari.”
This is the first time that Parineeti and Akshay will be seen on the silver screen together. Parineeti was last seen in one of the most successful films of 2017, Golmaal Returns alongside Ajay Devgn. She returned to the silver screen in 2017 after being a part of back-to-back flops Daawat-e-Ishq, Kill Dil and Dishoom. It looks like the luck has turned in her favour. Pari is also a part of Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar. This film also marks Arjun Kapoor and Parineeti’s collaboration after six years. The two actors had made their debut in lead roles in the hit film Ishaqzaade.
Meanwhile Akshay’s upcoming film ‘PadMan’ is all set to clash with Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s controversial film ‘Padmavat’ this Republic day at the box-office.
