With Selfiee, it marks the second collaboration between Akshay Kumar and Emraan Hashmi after their 2013 hit film Once Upon a Time in Mumbai Dobaara! Reportedly, it is the Hindi remake of 2019 Malayalam-language comedy film Driving Licence. It starred Prithviraj Sukumaran as a superstar and Suraj Venjaramoodu as a motor vehicle inspector. It would be interesting to see Akshay and Emraan reprising the roles.
Driving License was directed by Lal Jr and it revolved around a superstar famous for his driving skills but loses his licence. Then he confronts a motor inspector, who happens to be a die-hard fan of the actor.
Apart from Selfiee, Akshay had Ram Setu, Prithviraj, Bachchan Pandey, Raksha Bandhan, and OMG 2. While Emraan has Tiger 3 in his kitty.
