Akshay Kumar on Khiladi 786 (Interview)

With Khiladi 786 all set for release next weekend, superstar Akshay Kumar talks about the Khiladi series, his love for action films and a lot more..

On success and failure

  • I don’t take a big hit too seriously also, because the next Friday you have to go in the same circle… you never know what will happen the next Friday. I just take it as it comes. I just work and entertain.

On the Khiladi series

  • After ‘Khiladi 420′, I stopped (doing action movies) because I got married. I just wanted to work on comedy, romance and everything. Being a father and a husband, a man has to settle down a little bit. Now my son has grown up, I want to go back to action.

On his return to action films

  • It is a great thing to return to action. It is my love. I have been in this industry because of action. I have tournaments of action. I have my own personal gyms. Action is what I am. It’s because of action that I am here

Case of demand and supply

  • Audience wants this from me. They want over-the-top action (movies). These are their demands and we have to try and give it to them. The films are made for everybody. Not only masses but classes also love this

The overseas audience

  • Only action doesn’t work in overseas. But when you join it with comedy, it works. People want their actors to do comedy too. They don’t want any comedians next to the actor. They want one solo hero and want to see everything in him

Thank god, aki returns to action movies. He was at the edge to ruin his carear by doing comedy crap movies. But now he do comedy movies mixed with action(rr, h2, k-786, boss). Now he will rule BO like 2007.

A for action a for akshay. Now baap of action has returned, now all lallu,s will ran away. Wait till eid 2013, everyone will know who is real action hero. Before eid, enjoy k-786, special 26, naam hai boss.

If reviwes are mixed to positive, k-786 fisrt day business 15-16 crore,
satur 16-18 crores
sun 18-20 crores
weekend 48-54 crores.
If then WOM is good, then first week 85 crores, lifetime 150-160 crores, overseas 50 crore, worldwide 270 crores.
If wom average to mixed, then first week 70 crore, lifetime 135 crore, overseas 40 crore, worldwide 240 crore.
If reviews and wom are negative, it may crash and even it may not touch 100 crore worldwide. Content has to be strong.
Mark my words.

Its true that akki dont do films for buts$. But do for entertaining us.
Even desi boyz dont deserve a certificate, but it was given a certificate. Akki is actually most under rated actor.

akki has all out serious films next year, which will be no comedy film since a long time. this year, he had 2 comedy, 1 action masala and 1 action comedy. next year is a big test for him.

Special chabbis -- real life heist drama
Naam Hai Boss -- Action masala with his role likely to be serious as he’s a ganglord
OUATIM2 -- gangster crime drama
Thupakki -- action thriller
