Mumbai, March 12 (IANS) Akshay Kumar is hell bent on covering the seven wonders of the world. Currently, he is preparing to shoot action scenes on the Great Wall of China and next month he plans a stint in Egypt amid the pyramids. This time, it’s for a song with Katrina Kaif in “Singh Is King”.
“We’ll be shooting the introductory song of the lead pair. This will be where Akshay first meets Katrina. The film is complete after this,” Vipul Shah, who teamed up with Aneez Bazmi for the movie, told IANS.
The last time a romantic song was shot amid the blow-dried pyramids of Egypt, it featured Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol in Karan Johar’s “Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham”.
“Not surprising that Akshay wants the song to be canned in Egypt. He wants to better Shah Rukh Khan’s success score with Kajol. Most trade pundits see Akshay and Katrina as the next most-successful couple after Shah Rukh-Kajol,” the director said.
After “Namastey London” and “Welcome”, Akshay really feels Katrina is his lucky mascot.
“But we aren’t shooting in all the normal places in Egypt. We want to capture parts of the country other than the predictable pyramids,” Bazmi said.
