Himesh Reshammiya, even before his comeback film releases this Diwali, is ready with plans for next year. And this time, it won’t be Salman Khan who’ll help the music composer-singer-actor-and now distributor, but Akshay Kumar. Himesh and Akshay will co-produce a comedy titled Khiladi 786 – Made In Punjab, to release on Diwali 2012. The film will be directed by debutant Ashish Mohan.
A source informed Mumbai Mirror, “The film will be an action comedy. Akshay Kumar has already decided to release it next Diwali. Akshay will play the titled role and Himesh will be essaying the character of a Gujarati guy named Mansukh. Paresh Rawal will play Himesh’s father Champak Lal in the film. The female leads have not been finalised yet.”

will mark Akshay Kumar’s comeback to the Khiladi genre. His last Khiladi film was Khiladi 420 in 2000.
“The filmmakers are trying to rope in Amitabh Bachchan and Dharmendra for two pivotal roles in the project. The talks are on. Interestingly, the story of Khiladi 786 is the brainchild of none other than Himesh Reshammiya. He will also be composing the music for the project,” added the source.
When contacted, Himesh Reshammiya said, “It’s too early to talk about the project.”
