Akshay Kumar might replace Shahid Kapoor in this remake 

Last year's Tamil film 'Soorarai Pottru' was a blockbuster hit. The story was loosely based on G R Gopinath, founder of Air Deccan, was a blockbuster hit. As it is the case with most successful southern movies, there are talks about the Hindi remake of the film. Actor Shahid Kapoor was being considered for the lead role at first but now the makers are trying to get Akshay Kumar on board.

A source told Bollywood Hungama, "It's a pan India film and the story needs to be witnessed by everyone. Because the makers (actor Suriya and Guneet Monga) have the rights to the biopic, they have now planned to go big with Akshay Kumar on board. Yes, they narrated the story to Akshay again and he loved it. He has already given his verbal nod to the project and the team is waiting to lock in on the dates and other modalities."

The source further added, "Apparently, Shahid loved the film but asked for a ridiculous remuneration which didn't work at all for the makers. After several attempts at convincing Shahid, they gave up when he refused to budge from his
Rs. 30 cr. plus fee and a certain profit share, as well. They have now decided to shoot with Akshay for a little over a month and wrap the shoot. Akshay, they feel, will have a bigger crowd pull and he is also a more bankable option "

On the other hand Shahid took his career to new height with the remake 'Kabir Singh' and now he's awaiting the release of another remake i.e, 'Jersey'.
