akshay kumar and ananya panday to come together for karan johar's the untold story

If reports are to be believed, Ananya Panday is all set to share screen space for the first time with Akshay Kumar in Karan Johar’s upcoming film The Untold Story. The film is a biopic of lawyer and former President of the Indian National Congress, C Sankaran Nair.

While Akshay Kumar will be seen as the lawyer-activist in the film, Ananya will also play a pivotal role. Mid Day quoted a source saying, “Ananya will essay the role of a feisty junior lawyer in the film. She has yet to sign the dotted line, but word is that she has been finalised for the part.

The report further states that the film will be based on Raghu Palat and Pushpa Palat’s book, The Case That Shook The Empire. Karan’s upcoming film is likely to go on after Akshay finishes his current shooting schedule for the Soorarai Pottru remake with Radhika Madan.
