The Khiladi Kumar is undoubtedly one of the most happening and bankable superstars in Bollywood currently.
Just like the three Khans, filmmakers and production houses are keen to sign Akshay Kumar as most of his films guarantee 100 crore business easily. However, unlike the Khans, Akki doesn’t shy away from doing multiple films in a year.
While one or two films starring Shah Rukh, Salman, or Aamir is released in a year, Akshay Kumar would have at least three films under his belt and up for release.
Take 2016 for example, there were three films starring Akshay Kumar in the lead role released on the silver screen. All of which made huge business and entered the 100 crore club within the first couple of weeks itself. While Airlift and Rustom crossed the 200 crore figure, Housefull 3 came very near to that number.
The actor who turns 50 next year is already geared up to entertain his fans all around the globe with his upcoming films. Akshay Kumar, who was labeled as an action superstar, is now considered as one of the most versatile actors of Bollywood doing multiple films at a time playing different and interesting characters with each film.
