Akshaye Khanna is going slow while signing for new movies. Off late, he has hardly given his consent to any new film and is instead focusing on completing some of his other committed assignments.
One such movie is Neeraj Vora directed SHORTKUT - THE CON IS ON which is an Anil Kapoor production. He also has a film with VENUS, the details of which would be made public in a formal announcement soon. Beyond these films, he currently doesn't have any other film in hand.
In comparison, 2007 was a big year for Akshaye as he had as many as 4 releases from beginning till the end of year. While New Year kick started for him with the arrival of SALAAM-E-ISHQ, around half a year later he was seen in NAQAAB. One of the biggest films of his career, GANDHI MY FATHER came a few weeks later while the year ended with his special appearance in AAJA NACHLE.
There were two common factors about each of these four films. While Akshaye was unanimously appreciated for his act in all the films, each of them was a failure at the box office. The dismal performance of GANDHI MY FATHER particularly disturbed Akshaye who was banking heavily on this Anil Kapoor production.
Now he is looking forward to the release of RACE which is first film in the year 2008. An action thriller, it reunites him with Abbas-Mustan who have given him some of his best roles in films like HUMRAAZ, 36 CHINA TOWN and NAQAAB.
