Akshay Kumar is on a spree with back to back movie releases and signing new projects. Akshay was last seen in Anurag Singh’s Kesari which is one of the highest openers of 2019. Just recently, Akshay was spotted at the trailer launch of his upcoming movie, Mission Mangal, which is based on the launch of Mangalyaan by ISRO in 2013.
Recently in an interview with HT, Akshay spoke about his Hollywood projects and said, “I wouldn’t say I’ve not been offered Hollywood films, but whatever came wasn’t big enough or that great. And I’m very happy doing films here [in Bollywood]. If something very good and effective comes that lets me show my talent in a better way, I would love to do it.”
Akshay spoke about how Twinkle plays an important role in his career and said, “My wife has been a very big help in my career. It’s not that I have to discuss every script with her before I give it my nod, but she talks to me and I remember [those] things. She told me once, ‘Koi zor zabardasti nahi hai, jo achha lage karo’.”
He spoke about women empowerment too and how needs to balance with different genre roles and said, “Most of my films be it Padman (2018), Toilet: Ek Prem Katha (2017) or even (the upcoming) Mission Mangal, they have one more thing — women’s empowerment. But I’ve to do a Housefull, a Rowdy Rathore and a Good News also. So, it’s not that this [issue-based films] is the only thing I do. Whenever I get a chance and a good script, I’ll do it. I want to have all kinds of films in my kitty.”
Akshay is simultaneously shooting for Rohit Shetty’s Sooryavanshi opposite Katrina Kaif and Raj Mehta’s Good News opposite Kareena Kapoor and Diljit Dosanjh. We can’t wait to see him entertaining us soon again!
