Kriti Sanon is possibly on a roll! She has turned out to be a complete gamechanger in 201 and come 2021, she will have several films lined up one after the other. There's Mimi where she plays a surrogate mother, followed by Hum Do Humare Do which is a hilarious rom-com also starring Rajkummar Rao. Apart from these two, she is also gearing up to shoot Akshay Kumar starrer Bachchan Pandey and Varun Dhawan starrer Bhediya. 

Recently, there was news that Kriti will be essaying the role of a journalist in Bachchan Pandey. But, we can now confirm that the speculations are absolutely untrue. In fact, she has a very different role in the actioner. A source reveals, "Bachchan Pandey is actually a remake of Jigarthanda that starred Bobby Simha, Lakshmi Menon and Siddharth. The makers Sajid Nadiadwala had been planning to initially remake the film with a different case and at that point, Bachchan Pandey was supposed to be remake of Veeram. Now, the whole script has changed and they have reversed the gender of Siddharth's role in the remake."

The source further adds, "Not a journalist, Kriti will be playing a director who meets a dreaded gangster (Akshay Kumar) as part of her research on a film on gangsterism. Kriti will actually play the same role as essayed by Siddharth in the original. Akki plays Bobby's part whereas a leading lady will be roped in as his love interest in the film. Keeping the essence of the film, the makers have tweaked the script a bit and adapted it into a Hindi screenplay."

Et Tu Kriti Sanon - with Akshay Kumar? what about your friend Sushant Singh Rajput? Also, you once said directors told you that you were too good looking for films? Speaking from neck up - in my opinion, you are far from it.

She's not any "gamechanger" just an ordinary average actress. Gamechangers are writers and content creators not the actors!

All her movies were bad in 2019 regardless of the box office. What's so gamechanger about that? She's just a spineless puppet and accomplice and silent spectator to this toxic vile system!
