Newcomer Kriti Sanon's debut film Heropanti, opposite Jackie Shroff's son Tiger, was deemed a success and now the actress has another reason to celebrate.
Kriti has bagged her next lead role opposite Akshay Kumar, no less, in his upcoming action-comedy Singh Is Bling. (Also read: Most Special Celebration was the One Hosted by Father: Kriti Sanon)
Earlier, there were reports that Kareena Kapoor had been roped in to play the female lead in the movie, which will be directed by Prabhu Deva, but Kareena is believed to be saving her time for family and real life leading man, husband Saif Ali Khan.
The movie's poster, which was released some time back, shows Akshay brandishing a gold gun, wearing a sequined turban and gold jewellery.

Contrary to common belief, the film is not a sequel to Akshay Kumar's 2008 hit Singh Is Kinng which co-starred Katrina Kaif but it's safe to assume that the makers are hoping some of the previous film's grand success rubs off on this one.
