Akshay Kumar turns 48, announces a film, quick facts on Rustom!

On the eve of his 48th birthday, Bollywood’s workaholic superstar Akshay Kumar, announced yet another film. A romantic thriller titled ‘Rustom’, will mark the actor’s third collaboration with Neeraj Pandey.

Akshay’s previous two films with Neeraj, ‘Special 26’ and ‘Baby’, have done well at the box office and also won him critical acclaim.

Inspired by real life incidents, ‘Rustom’ will be co-produced by Zee Studios, KriArj Entertainment and Friday Filmworks.

“Having worked with Neeraj on two fabulous projects, I am excited to start work on our new film. I’m happy that Zee Studios is putting its might behind this film along with KriArj Entertainment and Friday Filmworks. It gives me and the entire team confidence of this launch worldwide using the global might of Zee” Akshay said in a statement that was released to the media.

Neeraj Pandey himself expressed confidence that the role is perfect for Akshay.

“When Tinu narrated ‘Rustom’ to us, we immediately got hooked to the quality of the narrative and its potential and instantly decided that it was something that we would like to produce. We also really felt that given the nature of the story, Akshay would be the perfect fit and him agreeing to come on board will definitely give it the canvas it requires.”

    first 60cr club hero
    then 70 cr club hero
    this year 80 cr club hero

    nex year pakka 90 cr club hero hahahahahaha

  • After anurag kashyap’s magnum opus BOMBAY VELVET…..its time now for ashutosh gowariker’s magnum opus MOHENJO DARO to get ALL TIME DISASTER tag.

    HR is overrated but he didn’t act good in his recent films.
    So,too much expectation from MD will be the reason for its failure just like the same of BV & BROTHERS.

    By the way, don’t forget about 18th September’s KATTI BATTI.

  • The news simultaneously makes me glad as well as sad.Rustom is no doubt going to be a good movie as it is neeraj akshoy combo.But,its problem is in the release date.Mohenjodaro is already an epic movie before its release.And the Hritik-Ashu-Rahman movie deserves solo release from all aspects.It is almost after 2 year that a hritik movie will be released.Hope Rustom postpones.

  • the supertalented….akshay…
    no 1 can essay any role lk him,..
    he is jst smooth in any transformation..,
    he has energy.,,darling of masses…
    na hum amitabh…na dilip.kumar na kisi hero ke bacche…

  • This movie is looking very interesting . So Neeraj Pandey is not the director of this movie . I think Akshay has signed this movie instead of Namastey England . I hope Rustom becomes a Super hit and another feather in Akki’s cap . But i definitely do not want a clash with Mohenjo Daro . As it will not be good for both the movies . If two movies clash on Eid, Diwali and Christmas then it is fine because there are a lot of holidays for both the movies but if clashes take place on Non Holidays then it will be very tough for both the movies because of lack of holidays . So i hope Rustom is postponed and then everything will be fine .

  • Happy Birthday Akki.
    I am not interested in Rustam, akki is habit to make continuous film every year with the people he succeed, which somehow lost interest. So like this year, republic day and independence day booked by Akshay. I still wish Rustam postponed on other date as Mohanjodaro will have upper hand but also carrying heavy budget, so a clash will affect both. More to Mohanjodaro. As its a project which been made in 2 years.
