Akshay Kumar is one of those Bollywood actors who entertain their fans by bringing them three to four films a year. Akshay Kumar’s films like Bachchan Pandey and Samrat Prithviraj were released this year, which did not get any response at the box office. Apart from these films, Akshay Kumar also has movies like Ram Setu, Selfie and Rakshabandhan in his account, whose releases the audience eagerly awaits. Meanwhile, news has come that Akshay Kumar has signed another film.
Akshay Kumar will play the role of C. Sankaran Nair!
According to a report in Bollywood Hungama, the film that Akshay has come out to sign is that of Karan Johar. As of now, there is no official confirmation of this yet. Reports have claimed that Akshay Kumar will be seen playing the role of famous lawyer C. Sankaran Nair in Karan Johar’s film. Let us tell you that C Sankaran was the lawyer who raised his voice and blamed the British for the Jallianwala incident.
Quoting sources, it has been written in the report that when the idea of making a biopic on C. Sankaran came to the mind of Karan Johar and director Karan Tyagi, it was only then that they thought that Akshay Kumar was the first choice for this character. It is said that an announcement can be made about this film soon. Since this film is about a veteran lawyer, the film will be set against the backdrop of the country’s independence, in which the story of the Jallianwala tiger massacre will also be depicted.
Know who Sankaran Nair was?
C. Sankaran Nair was a renowned lawyer and judge of the Madras High Court. He was one of the first to establish the Indian National Congress and took over as its president in 1897. Justice Nair was seen as a social reformer. He had dedicated his advocacy to society.
The most remarkable thing he did in his long glorious career was a courtroom battle he fought against Michael Odair, the Lieutenant Governor of Punjab. In his book ‘Gandhi and Anarchy’, Nair held Odair responsible for the Jallianwala Bagh massacre. He fought against an Englishman in the English court, whose jury was also presided over by the British. This case itself was very historic.
