Akshay Kumar Reacts To R Madhavan’s Statement
For the unversed, Rocketry actor R Madhavan spoke about films like Pushpa: The Rise and KGF: Chapter 2 and other high-octane films which took over a year to shoot. During the promotions of his film Rocketry, he said that actors commit themselves to the projects and films are made in years and not just in three or four months.
Now to this, the Bollywood megastar Akshay Kumar responded in a press meet when he was asked about his opinion on the matter he said, “Kya kehna chahunga? Bhai meri filmein khatam ho jaati hain main kya karoon? Main is mien thode hi kuch…meri filmein khatam ho jaati hain. Ek director aata hai kehta hai bhaiya aapka kaam khatam aap ghar jaaiye. Toh ab main ussey ladoon? (What can I say? If my film gets over in a short time what can I do? Director comes and tells me that my work on a film is done and I can go home. What should I do? Should I fight with him)?”.
Soon after this, director Aanand L Rai also responded to the matter saying, “He has said it time and again about completing a film in 40-45 days. But his calculation is not right. He has misled people by telling this. Which films were completed in 40-45 days? He comes on sets at 6 am and stays till we are done with our work. So, he doesn’t know but people get him on board saying 40-45 days but actually, he ends up giving 80-90 days to a film if you take into consideration the time he spends on set in a day.”
In a recent interview Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar opened up about his working days in a film and said, “One can’t give more than 45 to 50 days to a film and if you shoot a film in this time span, your budget will always be under control. I can’t work in a film that requires more than 100 days of the shoot.”
Raksha Bandhan is directed by Aanand L. Rai. While this will mark the second collaboration of Akshay Kumar and Bhumi Pednekar on screen, the duo was earlier seen in the film ‘Toilet: Ek Prem Katha’. The film will release on 11th August 2022. Raksha Bandhan will see a direct box office clash with Aamir Khan’s upcoming film Laal Singh Chaddha.
