It wouldn't be actor Akshay Kumar if we weren't talking about more and more movies coming out, isn't it? Kumar, who has been constant with an array of films releasing constantly where the likes of Bell Bottom released and Sooryavanshi will be releasing on Diwali, he already has other films lined up.

It seems Kumar has struck quite a working relationship with director-producer Aanand L Rai as he is already set to reunite with him for the third time. Kumar has already worked with Rai in yet-to-be-released films, Atrangi Re and Raksha Bandhan and now he will be working with him in another film in a different space altogether. 

The film is titled Gorkha and it is based on the life of Major General Ian Cardozo, a legendary officer of the Gorkha regiment of the Indian Army (5th Gorkha Rifles). The film will be helmed by national award winner Sanjay Puran Singh Chauhan.

Kumar will be essaying the role of the legendary war hero who fought in the wars of 1962, 1965, and most notably in the Indo-Pakistan War of 1971. On the occasion of Dusshera, Akshay made the official announcement. Sharing the first look posters with fans, the actor wrote, “Sometimes you come across stories so inspiring that you just want to make them. #Gorkha - on the life of legendary war hero, Major General Ian Cardozo is one such film. Honoured to essay the role of an icon and present this special film. Directed By - @sanjaypchauhan” Have a look:
