Akshay Kumar does different films and that’s why he is a bankable actor. It is said that Akshay makes his films in Tight budgets and ensures return on investment.
A trade source says, “Take 2016 alone. He started the year with Airlift, a realistic account of Indians being rescued from Kuwait after the Iraqi invasion in 1990. He followed it up with Housefull 3, a slapstick comedy , and is now coming up with director Tinu Suresh Desai’s Rustom, based on a true incident that rocked the nation in 1959.Not one to rest on his laurels, the actor constantly pushes the envelope. And at the core, he knows that cinema must entertain.“
Moreover, the earnings from all other avenues, over and above the satellite costs, make AK a safe and saleable bet all the way. Rustom, produced by Zee Studios and Kriarj Entertainment, in association with Cape Of Good Films and Friday Filmworks, releases on August 12.
