Will Akshay Kumar break his flop run?
With Sajid Nadiadwala’s Kambakkht Ishq ready to hit the screens on July 10, Bollywood star Akshay Kumar is keeping his fingers crossed.The actor has had two successive flops this year after a dream run since 2006 where his films raked up over Rs 500 crore business world-wide. His last releases Chandni Chowk to China and Tasveer 8×10 have not done well. Now, after a two month lull as the producers-multiplexes row over revenue sharing resolved amicably, Kambakkht Ishq is the first big-budget film to be released next month. Talking to reporters, Akshay said he is keeping his fingers crossed and hopes that his new film directed by debutant Sabbir Khan does well at the box office.He said his success ratio with new directors has been very good.
I worked with new directors like Abbas-Mustan, Vipul Shah, Sajid Khan and the films did phenomenal business,” he said.Kambakkht Ishq was not an action film, he said. “It is a romantic comedy. I am doing a romantic film after a long time. The film is technically very superior,” he said.Speaking about his interaction with Hollywood superstar Sylester Stallone, Akshay said they discussed how action sequences are picturised in Hollywood and Bollywood.”We also spoke about health problems suffered by action stars. He told me about his knee problem,” Akshay said.Akshay said he plays a male chauvnist in Kambakkht Ishq.The actor said the truth is women are more powerful and have more guts than men.
I have just completed television series Fear Factor season two with 13 women,” he said.Saying that he was relieved that the multiplex-producers deadlock over revenue sharing has been resolved, Akshay said there would be a beeline of films waiting to be released.”Myself and the industry are positive and I want every film to do well. All losses will be recovered in three to four months,” he said. Akshay’s co-star Kareena Kapoor said Kambakkht Ishq takes style and fashion to another level. “My character has a understated classic look,” she said.
The actress said she plays a part time model who wants to become a surgeon. “I have no stunt scenes in the film. Everything has been done by Akshay and Sylvestor Stallone,” she said.
