Madhuri to star opposite Akshay in Ko remake?
If all goes well, Madhuri will co-star with Akshay Kumar in the Hindi remake of Ko.
Following the trend of remaking south films in Hindi, actor Akshay Kumar has bought the rights of the super hit Tamil film Ko. Apparently, the actor who was in search of a lead actress has offered the plump role to Madhuri Dixit.
According to an industry source, Akshay has spoken to Madhuri about being a part of Ko and has also given her the script to read. Madhuri, we hear, although excited about the project hasn’t signed on the dotted line, yet. ‘Ko’ requires two heroines. Akshay, we hear, was initially keen to cast Kareena Kapoor and Katrina Kaif for the same film, but decided otherwise.
The Ko remake, tentatively titled Satygraha, will go on floors soon this year. The Tamil political thriller, Ko was directed by K.V Anand. Actor Jeeva and Karthika Nair played main leads in the film. The Hindi remake of Ko will be directed by Prakash Jhan for Hari Om Productions.
