Akshay Kumar is on a promotional tour for his upcoming film Raksha Bandhan and during a promotional tour, he was asked by a fan if he would remake a Malayalam film or act in one. According to the TOI, Kumar replied, "I would love to star in it, but I don't know how to speak Malayalam." In the past, Kumar has appeared in Tamil and Kannada films. "I did a Tamil film with Rajinikanth sir, I have worked in a Kannada film. It would be my privilege to work in Malayalam. I should talk to Priyadarshan about it, and ask him if he can cast me with Mohanlal. It would be an honour to do that," he said.
