After an ordinary weekend, Monday had a clear enough tale to tell for TASHAN. The film's word of mouth has reached an abysmal low and this Yash Raj film now is under threat of coming close to the first week's collections of the likes of JHOOM BARABAR JHOOM (for which the end box office outcome read a flop in the final run).
Still, in spite of such unforeseen fate of the film, Akshay Kumar is smiling and continuing to keep 'happy'. How is that possible? Well, the name of the character that he plays in his forthcoming film is called - hold your breath - Happy Singh!
Yes, that's true! In Anees Bazmee's SINGH IS KINNG which has an out and out Punjabi flavor to it, Akshay Kumar is known as Happy Singh while Sonu Sood is named Lucky Singh. It is a known fact that names like Happy Singh and Lucky Singh are pretty much in vogue in the state of Punjab and for a film like SINGH IS KINNG it is only justified to have two of its principal protagonists carrying the same names.
With SINGH IS KINNG just about three months away, Akshay Kumar certainly would be looking forward to some 'happy' times ahead after the TASHAN fiasco.
