It’s never happened in recent times that a top star has a slew of films lined up for release, and the film’s producers are wondering when to release them. Akshay Kumar who has a good mix of films — from action packed ventures, comedy movies to those with a dash of deshbhakti — has his producers in a quandary. Interestingly, he himself is a stakeholder in some of these films.
Akshay will have five films ready for a back-to-back release. He has Kesari with Karan Johar and directed by Anurag Singh up for release in March. Then Mission Mangal is scheduled for an August release. He is also slated to do Suryavanshi with Rohit Shetty and Good News that has him opposite Kareena Kapoor.
Lastly, Housefull 4 for Sajid Nadiadwala is also slated for an end of the year release. “It’s a good quandary for an actor to be in. But, the producers will need a few clear weeks before the actor’s film comes on screen, as an overdose of Akshay Kumar will also hamper their box office collections. All the producers concerned will need to sit and sort their release dates,” says a trade expert.
