Reportedly, Ananya and Akshay were recently spotted at IIT Roorkee. In a report by Zoom, a source has been quoted saying, “This schedule will last for about 20 days at least.” And then? “Then, the following schedule is in Alibag.”

The book chronicles Nair’s historic legal battle against Michael Francis O’Dwyer, the then Lt Governor of Punjab and one of the key planners of the brutal attack on unarmed civilians in 1919.

Talking about Akshay, he was last seen in Mission Raniganj, which was released in October this year. The flick was based on Jaswant Singh Gill, a mining engineer from IIT Dhanbad who rescued 65 trapped miners at the Raniganj Coalfields in 1989. Meanwhile, Karan Johar’s last directorial project was, Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani. Currently, he is seen hosting the 8th season of his popular celebrity chat show, Koffee With Karan.
