Akshay KumarAkshay Kumar's It's Entertainment travels from India to Bangkok

Though busy with Shahid Kapoor's Phata Poster Nikla Hero, Ramesh Taurani is ready to start work on his next venture, It's Entertainment. The producer plans to begin shooting for the film in Bangkok from July 1.

Talking about the film, Sajid (of Sajid-Farhad fame) says, "The story of the movie begins in Mumbai and later unfolds in Bangkok, hence we will be shooting a major chunk of the project at the foreign location." Having written for Rohit Shetty's Bol Bachchan earlier, the writer duo, Sajid-Farhad will be turning directors with this project. Meanwhile, after making her Bollywood debut opposite Ajay Devgn in Himmatwala, Tamannaah will be seen opposite Akshay Kumar. Apart from the duo, It's Entertainment also stars an ensemble cast that includes Mithun Chakraborty, Sonu Sood, Prakash Raj, Johnny Lever and Krushna Abhishek.

"It's a complete masala entertainer, and to make this genre a success, one needs good characters that keep the audience hooked. Look at Rohit Shetty's films, he has a good understanding of characters. Taking a cue from him, we have roped in a fantastic ensemble cast," elaborates Farhad. The movie also has a dog, a golden retriever, that has an important part to play.

After heading back from Bangkok, the team will shoot for its second schedule in Mumbai at both real locations and studios.

Sajid-Farhad are now waiting for Chennai Express to release. The duo have written the screenplay of this Shah Rukh Khan-Deepika Padukone starrer.
