The actor will shoot the sequence for the opening scenes of the follow-up to hit comedy Housefull, Mumbai Mirror reports.
A source told the site: "Akshay has been toying with the idea of getting back to action in a way that would immediately catch people's attention.
"He sat down with producer Sajid Nadiadwala and director Sajid Khan and came up with the idea of an introductory fight in a place where it has never been done before."
If the idea goes ahead, it will become the first action sequence to be shot in the continent.
Kumar, who has been seen in a series of comedies recently, is well known for his action stunts.
He admitted recently that he can only do big budget commercial films because he does not think he has the acting skills to carry off more niche projects.
Despite his decision to move away from comedy, he will next be seen playing a marriage counsellor in Thank You.
