Akshay Kumar is riding high on the success of his recent film Mission Mangal. The film was made on a medium budget of 45 crores but earned more than 150% profits in just 6 days of its release. While the holiday effect and positive word of mouth have played a great role in making the film the kind of success it is, Akshay Kumar’s goodwill has also played a part.
The superstar has picked up some really good content in the last few years and that has helped the film big time because the audience trust him more now.
However, Akshay laughs off his credibility and says that his upcoming comedy film Housefull 4 will run everything that he has built with Mission Mangal and other socially relevant films recently. During a recent interview with Filmfare, when Akshay was asked about getting typecast, Vidya Balan who was accompanying him immediately jumped in the conversation and said, “I think Akshay’s next film will typecast him, which is Housefull 4. I think the film has the biggest social message.”
Akshay too had a funny response to what Vidya said. “Jitni izzat kamaayi hai, woh sab nikal jaayegi Housefull 4 mein.” (All the good will that I have earned will go away with Housefull 4) he said.
Housefull 4 is the 4th installment of Hit Bollywood comedy franchise. Directed by Farhad Samji, the film stars Akshay Kumar, Bobby Deol, Riteish Deshmukh, Rana Daggubati, Kriti Sanon, Kirti Kharbanda & Pooja Hegde in main roles.
