MUMBAI: Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar is likely to a part of the Hindi remake of Tamil blockbuster "Kaththi".

Directed by A R Murugadoss, "Kaththi", the action drama Tamil film featured actor Vijay in dual roles along with Samantha Ruth Prabhu, Neil Nitin Mukesh and others.

Earlier, the "Baby" actor had said he was yet to take a call on whether he is part of the remake.

When asked if he is doing the film, Akshay said in an interview, "I think so."

To a query on when the shoot of "Kaththi" remake begins, he said, "We are still deciding."

The "Khiladi" actor has worked with Murugadoss in "Holiday: A Soldier Is Never Off Duty".

"Kaththi" is the tale of Kathiresan and Jeevanantham who are lookalikes and focuses on the issue of farmers committing suicide due to corporate encroachment.

Akshay will also be seen in "Rustom", produced by filmmaker Neeraj Pandey. The duo has previously gave hits like "Baby" and "Special 26".

"We have already started it (the movie). I am going to join in another 15 days," Akshay said.

Akshay will also be a part of director Vipul Shah's "Namastey England".

The film is a sequel to the 2007 hit romantic drama "Namastey London" which also starred actress Katrina Kaif.

On reports that the movie has been pushed because the actor will now get busy with "Robot 2", Akshay said, "That was always going to happen mid of this year. I have no idea (about the release), It all depends on my speed."

Akshay will be next seen in "Airlift", directed by Raja Krishna Menon. The film, which also stars Nimrat Kaur, is based on the evacuation of Indians based in Kuwait during the Iraq-Kuwait war.

"Airlift" is scheduled to release on January 22.
