Akshay Kumar, who started his career as an action hero and went on to prove his good comic timing later, seems desperate. Not because he cannot bag big banner films anymore, or he cannot call the shots (he has been criticised for getting co-actors' roles chopped at the editing table). But because he is not getting the desired box-office results for his latest films. It's Entertainment and Shaukeen failed to garner good response at the ticket window. Holiday and Baby did well, but they also failed to present any threat to the Khan trio in terms of collections. Probably it was the result of his despondent state that he signed Gabbar Is Back.
