Akshay Kumar's Ikka has been in the news for a while now. While reports suggested that the film had been shelved, director AR Murugadoss has confirmed that the film will go on floors next year.

In an exclusive interview with Catch, the Akira director revealed that the script of the film will be tweaked to appeal to the Bollywood audience. He said:

"After Akira releases, our complete focus will be on Ikka. We will have to tweak the script as per the Bollywood sensibilities. There is a little bit of date issues with Akshay Kumar, once everything is sorted out, we will go on floors."
