Bollywood superstar Akshay Kumar has said Salman Khan promoted his upcoming film ‘Rustom’ on his own. He pointed out that it shows the industry is united.
“He did it on his own. It shows we are all united. Around 180 films are made in the industry (in a year) and many are left incomplete. We are not race horses that we have to push forward and show one-upmanship… “
“There is a lot of work in Bollywood and not enough heroes and heroines. There is plenty of space for all of us and it’s not about competition” Akshay said.
Earlier this week, Salman had posted a video on his official Twitter page asking his fans to watch ‘Rustom’ in theatres.
“Humare film industry ke Rustom-e-Hind ki film aa rahi hai naam hai ‘Rustom’. August 12 ko jaakar dekhiye Akshay Kumar ki film ‘Rustom’.”
‘Rustom’ is based on real life story of Indian Navy officer Commander K.M. Nanavati, who shot dead his wife’s lover but was pardoned. The film, which carries the tag line ‘3 shots that shocked the nation’, will release in theatres on 12th August.
