Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar, who already has his plate full with many upcoming films, recently gave his nod for the Hindi remake of Tamil film ‘Veeram’(2014). Tentatively the movie has been titled ‘Land Of Lungi’(LOL). 

‘Veeram’ starred Ajith, the film was his first film with director Siva.

LOL, will be directed by Farhad Samji (of director duo Sajid-Farhad) and will be produced by Sajid Nadiadwala. 

Akshay Kumar, who is riding high, thanks to the success of his recent films, 'Toilet: Ek Prem Katha' and 'Jolly LLB 2' earlier this year, will reprise Ajith’s role in the film. The film’s name is derived from the clothing Akshay will wear, which will be a lungi.

According to report the actor will be playing a lungi- clad hero in the film. As for Akshay and Sajid, this will be their ninth film together. They have a great team and are good friends, too. This seems like a safe bet, as their original films had done good business and now they come together for the remake.   

‘Land Of Lungi’ will be a village based drama and the makers are keen on roping in Tamannaah Bhatia, who starred in the original.
