Akshay Kumar’s Baby 2 will start in 2019 : Neeraj Pandey. Director Neeraj Pandey confirms that Baby Sequel with Akshay Kumar will go on floors in 2019 : Details.
As Pandey’s debut film, A Wednesday completes nine years today, On September 5, the director interacted with the media in Mumbai, wherein he confirmed that Baby 2 would go on floors in 2019. He said:
“Yes, we will hopefully come out with another film from the Baby franchise in 2019. It will be a sequel and not a spin off. I don’t know if I will be directing the sequel, but it is happening. We will take the directorial call closer to the shooting schedule.”
While talking about the story behind Akshay Kumar being approached for Special 26, Neeraj Pandey said “We have believed in anti-casting. We don’t believe to play safe as far as casting is concerned. For us, it was very important to cast someone who can be presented in a very fresh manner. It was essentially a very basic casting call. It had its own journey.
The script first went to Akshay but his office staff said that he wasn’t keen to do the film. 4 years later, when I narrated the same script again, he was excited to do the film. Akshay till date says, that he never read the script of Special 26, but I maintain by stance that the script was rejected by him back then. We keep having this argument. That discussion is never ending.”
