Superstar: Akshay Kumar



After rocking the theaters last year with four blockbuster movies - Namastey London, Heyy Babyy, Bhool Bhulaiyaa and Welcome Akshay Kumar has entered the top league! Though his last film Tashan may have flopped, audiences loved Akshay in the film! And now once again with Singh Is Kinng Akshay has surpassed audience expectations as people just can not stop raving about the film.

Akshay's upcoming line up too looks very promising as Chandani Chowk to China, Blue, Kambakht Ishq, Eight by Ten are to release in the next year or so. All these movies are associated with big banners and today after Shah Rukh Khan and Amitabh Bachchan, Akshay Kumar is being touted as the next biggest superstar. In fact Akshay's movies are at times grossing much more than any of his colleagues' have in the Bollywood Industry!

A Look Into The Future With Akshay Kumar:


Chandani Chowk to China, said to be semi- autobiographical film portraying actor Akshay Kumar’s real life, is the first Indian movie which is shot in China and is being produced by Warner Brothers. The film was earlier known as Mera Naam Chin Chin Choo and also Made in China but it was later titled Chandani Chowk To China. For the 1st time Akshay Kumar (Siddhu) and Deepika Padukone (Mira/Malani) will come together in this action packed comedy about a simple cook from Chandni Chowk mistaken for the reincarnation of an ancient peasant warrior Liu Sheng by residents of an oppressed Chinese village.



Kambakth Ishq is a forthcoming Bollywood film directed by Sabir Khan and produced by Sajid Nadiadwala. Currently in its filming stage, the film will feature Akshay Kumar and Kareena Kapoor in pivotal roles along with 9 actors from Hollywood, and is looking at a tentative release date of sometime end of this year or later next year. Kambakth Ishq is a romantic comedy about an Indian stuntman who takes Hollywood by storm but cannot find true love. Akshay is currently in LA shooting for this film and the film is said to have special appearances by Hollywood stars like Sylvester Stallone. Looks like Akshay is a bridge that is bringing Bollywood & Hollywood closer.




Eight by Ten is a thriller film starring Akshay Kumar and Ayesha Takia in the lead roles and is directed by Nagesh Kukunoor, and produced by Percept Picture Company. The film features Vinod Khanna, Sharmila Tagore, Javed Jaffrey and Anant Mahadevan in supporting roles. As of March 2008, the cast and crew is shooting in Calgary, Canada. It was previously called Tasveer, but changed due to the director's insistance that the title was jinxed.


Blue is an action film, being filmed in the Bahamas, starring Sunjay Dutt, Akshay Kumar, Suniel Shetty, Lara Dutta and Zayed Khan. It is directed by Anthony D' Souza. While shooting for the film Akshay hit his head against the shipwreck and started bleeding. What's more a lot of sharks reached there after getting the smell of his blood. Seeing this, the entire crew and cast members dived into the sea and surrounded him. He came out safe and was immediately rushed to hospital for first aid. Now that's a dangerous event at a film's shooting!

It looks like Akshay will keep on climbing the ladder of success as after the hit Singh Is Kinng he seems to have many more blockbuster films lined up! Fans you just can't get enough of Akshay, isn't it?
