The Venus produced ‘De Dana Dhan’ will have Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif coming together for the fifth time. This jodi has emerged as one of the most successful on screen jodis of all times in Bollywood what with their three back two back hits, ‘Namastey London’, ‘Welcome’ and ‘Singh Is Kinng’ having done record business at the box office world wide( though most of the above can only be called surprise hits!)
‘De Dana Dhan’ is directed by Priyadarshan and it brings back the super hit team of Hera Pheri – Priyadarshan, Akshay Kumar, Suneil Shetty and Paresh Rawal after over 8 years. It is a mad cap comedy to be shot almost completely in Singapore from November 2008 onwards. Industry insiders claim it was Akshay’s suggestion to get Katrina opposite him in the film after reading the script.
Now one wonders what is going to be Salman’s reaction to this! It is a known fact that Salman wasn’t exactly happy on knowing that Katrina had signed ‘Singh Is Kinng’ without even telling him about it.
The Akshay – Katrina pair is being considered the hottest pair in Bollywood today with a great strike record with only a one flop, ‘Hum Ko Deewana Kar Gaye’ (2006) which incidentally was their first film together.
