Akshay Kumar and Vidyut Jamwal to start shooting for Firoz Nadiadwala's film in August

Akshay Kumar seems to be on a film signing spree. The actor, whose films Housefull 3 and Rustom release this year, has already signed on for films like Baby 2, Namastey England, Robot 2, Priyadarshan's untitled next, and Sriram Raghavn's untitled next.

Now, the actor has signed on for yet another film. One with Firoz Nadiadwala. The two reportedly share quite a tumultuous relationship - something that allegedly led to Akshay opting out of Hera Pheri 3 and Welcome Back. However, the two have reportedly sorted out their differences and Akshay has signed on for the film - which will be directed by choreographer-turned -director, Ahmad Khan.

While initial rumours suggested that the film would be a sequel to Awara Pagal Deewana, director Ahmad Khan told Absolute India that this was not the case.

The movie will also star Vidyut Jamwal - who missed out an opportunity to work with Khiladi Kumar in Holiday. However, it seems like he may just have gotten lucky this time around.
