Akshay Kumar is on a month-long vacation in France with his family. But once he is back to the city around July 21, the actor is set to immerse himself only in work.
“Once Akshay is back, he will start off with the promotions of his next (the remake of the Hollywood hit, Warrior; 2011). Before leaving Mumbai, Akshay had already earmarked the dates for the promotions of his new film that releases in August. Then, he will start shooting, and get involved in the post-production work of his other projects,” says an insider.
Not just that, the actor also has to complete the shooting and post-production work of his next home production that is being directed by Prabhudheva. “Akshay is aware that his coming months — after the holiday — will be busy, and that’s why he was keen on going for the holiday now,” adds the insider.
Currently, he is vacationing in the South of France. On Monday (June 15), Akshay tweeted a picture of him with his wife, Twinkle Khanna, with a caption that read, “And the holiday begins...loving driving around the picturesque Antibes in Nice, great view and even better company :) (sic).”
Also, an upcoming show might be based on two of Akshay’s films. While the show’s title is named after the actor’s latest release, the plot is apparently inspired from his other film, Entertainment (2014). The comedy show stars Jayati Bhatia and Vahbiz Dorabjee, among others.
“The show isn’t a copy of Entertainment. But, it is true that the serial has a dog in a prominent role, and its presence leads to many twists in the story. It’s a family show, and the dog is an integral part of the story,” says Jayati.
The 2014 film revolved around the story of Akhil (Akshay), who learns that he will inherit Rs 3,000 crore after his father’s death, a diamond baron. But soon, he finds out that the empire is actually inherited by Entertainment, his father’s dog.
