The actor expressed her excitement of reuniting with the trio. “My character is very different from the ones I have played, so I am eagerly waiting for the shoot to begin. I had a great time with the team while collaborating with them for Housefull 4, so this film is going to be a lot of fun as well,” Kriti told the publication.

Producer Sajid Nadiawala is also confident that Kriti will do an amazing job. “The audience loved Akshay and Kriti’s pairing in Housefull 4. I am sure Kriti will nail this role as well,” he said.

Some time back, Akshay unveiled the first poster of the film. “Coming on Christmas 2020! In & As #BachchanPandey In #SajidNadiadwala’s Next, directed by @farhad_samji,” he wrote on Twitter.
