"Started shooting my first film in the New Year, the Hindi remake of Thuppakki! Would love to get your good wishes today," Akshay tweeted on Thursday.
For the Hindi remake, Akshay once again teams up with Sonakshi Sinha with whom he worked in Joker and Rowdy Rathore.
The original was directed by A.R. Murugadoss, who wields the megaphone for the Hindi remake too.
The year 2012 was a splendid year for Akshay with as many as five hits - he had six outings and out of them Housefull 2, Rowdy Rathore, Oh My God! and Khiladi 786. These films not only earned profit, but some even entered the Rs.100 crore club.
The only spoilsport was Joker.
