Is Akshay Kumar Bollywood’s most versatile actor or the industry’s most bankable star? With his dream run on the box office -- with a string of Rs 100 crore-plus innings with Housefull 3, Airlift and now Rustom -- he’s the newest champion of ‘mass’ films in B’town.
One reason for his success is that he keeps mixing his films. The latest addition to his list is Sarbjit director Omung Kumar’s upcoming film Five. According to a report in Bollywood Hungama, Akshay will be seen in five different avatars in the film. However, both the Kumars are tight-lipped about the project.
Recently included in Forbes list of highest earning celebrities, Kumar is known for doing a film every quarter of the year. Sometimes, it goes up to 5-6 films per year. In 1997 and 2013, he featured in 7 films in a year.
He has already announced his next three projects to be released in 2017, and this one could well be the fourth. With Jolly LLB 2, Crack and Toilet Ek Prem Katha, you’ll be watching a lot of Akshay Kumar in coming days.
