Akshay Kumar and Vidya Balan may emulate Dav Anand and Waheeda Rehman in Pritish Nandy and Rituparno Ghosh’s ‘Rahgir’ (traveller or wanderer), a repeat of Vijay Anand’s ‘Guide’ (1965).
The project is still to be finalized and its makers are working on the details. They have approached Akshay and Vidya and if everything work out well Akshay will play the traveller and Vidya might play Rosie. The film will start in the next few months so that it gets released this year.
Praising the actor Nandy said, “In my view, Akshay is an extremely fine actor who has traditionally been cast in roles where he had little opportunity to showcase his versatile acting skills. And about Vidya, he says, “She displayed fine acting sensibilities in Parineeta. What she needs today is a film that will put her on a different level altogether. It’s time she did big-ticket numbers, and Rahgir could be one of them.”
Rituparno Ghosh who has been keen to cast Akshay in his films for some time now, said he find great intensity in Akshay Kumar. In Akshay he find a transparency and an eagerness to learn. Guide is beautifully love story that focuses on what happens when a tourist guide takes up with an ex-dancer who has been abandoned by her archaeologist husband and then guides her career as she becomes a musical star.
