With a new poster of Bachchan Pandey, Akshay Kumar announced the release date of his upcoming film on Saturday - it's Republic Day 2022. The actor, however, did not mention in his post whether the film will open in theatres or premiere on an OTT platform. Sharing a new poster of the film, Akshay Kumar wrote: "His one look is enough! #BachchanPandey releasing on January 26, 2022!" Akshay plays the role of a gangster, who aspires to be an actor in Bachchan Pandey. The new poster features him wearing a brown shirt and matching headband that he paired with heavy metal chains and earrings. His one blue eye and scarred face make him look deadly.
