Prabhu Deva, who remade superhit movie Pokkiri in Hindi with Salman Khan, has roped in Akshay Kumar to play the protagonist, which was played by Ravi Teja in Vikramarkudu. The director has signed Sonakshi Sinha to play the female lead role in yet to be titled film. Maverick director Sanjay Leela Bhansali is producing the film.
