After a successful 2012, actor Akshay Kumar enters 2013 by shooting for the Hindi remake of Tamil action thriller Thuppakki. Akki tweeted about the shoot on the social networking site today.
Akshay tweets, “Started shooting my first film in the New Year, the Hindi remake of Thuppakki! Would love to get your good wishes today.”
The original was directed by A.R. Murugadoss, who wields the megaphone for the Hindi remake too.
The year 2012 was a splendid year for Akshay with as many as five hits – he had six outings and out of them Housefull 2, Rowdy Rathore, OMG Oh My God! and Khiladi 786. These films not only earned profit, but some even entered the Rs.100 crore club. The only film that didn’t do well was Joker.
