Bollywood Sensation Akshay Kumar to Play NSA Ajit Doval in New Film With Baby Director Neeraj Pandey?

Biopics have become the new cool in Bollywood.

Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar is soon set to play National Security Advisor Ajit Doval, according to sources.


Sources believe that the 51-year-old Akshay, who has been unofficially declared the flag bearer of patriotic films, will soon be seen as Ajit Doval, National Security Advisor to PM Narendra Modi, in Neeraj Pandey’s next film.


The actor-director duo is coming together for a thriller in the same zone as Baby, according to media.


Earlier Akshay and Neeraj have worked together in films like Special 26, Baby, Rustom and Toilet: Ek Prem Katha (Neeraj co-produced the last 2 films).


As per a source close to the development, the film will revolve around the career highlights of the National Security Advisor to the Prime Minister of India, Ajit Doval.


While the work on the script has begun and research is underway, the film will take time to go on floors as both the director and actor are busy with their current projects.


“Neeraj will first make Chanakya with Ajay Devgn, which was announced a few months ago. Akshay also has to complete prior commitments. The team wants to lock the script before making an official announcement,” the source told the media.


This collaboration is seen as a positive development between the duo as there were rumours of a tiff between Akshay and Neeraj when the latter was pitting his film Aiyaary, starring Sidharth Malhotra and Manoj Bajpayee, against Akshay’s Pad Man at the box office during the Republic Day weekend previous year.


Though later, the release of the film was deferred to Frbruary 16, a week after Akshay’s Pad Man was released. Rumour has it that another film, Crack, which Akshay announced a few days after the release of Rustom, was apparently called off because of the fallout.


This is not the 1st time that a character based on NSA Doval will be seen on the big screen.


Previously, in the 2018 film Uri: The Surgical Strike, starring Vicky Kaushal, Paresh Rawal played the role of Govind Bhardwaj, which was based on Ajit Doval.


Moreover, after watching Akshay playing a tough cop in various films, it will be interesting to see Akshay Kumar in the role of NSA Ajit Doval, who played a key role in a number of projects of national interest.


Furthermore, the former IPS was actively involved in anti-insurgency operations in Mizoram and Punjab, as also negotiations to facilitate the release of passengers from IC-814 in Kandahar in 1999. He was among the key people who strategized the Balakot airstrike on February 26 this year.
