MUMBAI: Kriti Sanon is on a roll! Delivering a hit 'Housefull 4', already has a promising upcoming movie 'Panipat' and now also bagged a big role in 'Bachchan Pandey' opposite Akshay Kumar, she is definitely on a hit spree.
The Raabta actress has time and again proved her caliber with all her movies if we keep aside the box-office collection of most of them. Now, she is reuniting again with her 'Housefull 4' co-star Akshay Kumar. It was recently announced that Sanon has been roped in as a female lead for Akshay starrer 'Bachchan Panday'.
In this upcoming movie, Kriti Sanon will not be playing a mere love interest of the male lead. In an interview, director Farhad Samjhi revealed that Kriti's role will be much bigger than any usual role of an actress in Bollywood. He said, "I can say this without any qualms that Kriti’s role in the film is better than a parallel hero role. It’s a very meaty role, in fact, any actress wouldn’t have gotten such a role, it is that good."
Kriti Sanon too is very excited about being a part of the movie 'Bachchan Pandey'. Sharing this news with all her fans, the Heropanti actress wrote, "Thrilled and beyond excited for this reunion!! This Christmas is gonna be indeed a Merry Merry one! Can’t wait to start #BachchanPandey #SajidSir @akshaykumar @farhad_samji @WardaNadiadwala."
