Director Neeraj Pandey denies fallout with Akshay Kumar, explains why Crack was shelved
Filmmaker Neeraj Pandey has shared a great collaborative relationship with Akshay Kumar.
From successful collaborations such as 'Baby', 'Toilet Ek Prem Katha', 'Special 26' and 'Naam Shabana', the duo have delivered big blockbusters at the box-office and were gearing up for their next, 'Crack'. Even the poster of the proposed film was unveiled on social media in 2016.
But somehow things did not take off further from that development. On being asked why, the director was quoted in an interview to a daily saying that he wasn't happy with the way the script surfaced and there are no chances of it being made. The shelving of the film led to speculations that all is not well between Pandey and Kumar.
Rubbishing the rumours, the 'A Wednesday' director said that Kumar moved on post 'Crack' failing to go into production, while he was roped in for Ajay Devgn's 'Chanakya'. Though the director also emphasised that given a chance, he would love to collaborate with the 'Sooryavanshi' actor in future if a great script came up.
Currently, Pandey is busy basking in the acclaim for his latest web show, 'Special Ops' which is now streaming on Hotstar.
