Akshay Kumar had a reasonably decent 2011 where he had a couple of average earners in DESI BOYZ, THANK YOU and with good critical acclaim coming in for a sensitive performance in PATIALA HOUSE. Moreover 2012 looks even brighter with quite a few interesting films spread across different genres lined up for release one after another. As the New Year kick-starts and Akshay gets back to the grind after a short holiday where he brought in the birthday of his wife Twinkle Khanna and father-in-law Rajesh Khanna, the 'khiladi' gets going with his newer bunch of films - HOUSEFULL 2, ROWDY RATHORE and JOKER.
First to arrive would be HOUSEFULL 2 which, as per the industry insiders, has shaped up really well and is all set to be the first blockbuster of the year 2012. Not known as someone who likes making premature declarations around the commercial outcome of his upcoming films, Akshay is happy to talk about the film's director Sajid Khan who is said to have taken further strides as a filmmaker when compared to his HOUSEFULL and HEYY BABYY. CHECK OUT: As K3G completes 10 years, it's time for HOUSEFULL 2
''One thing that I can say about Sajid Khan is that he is a man of his words,' says Akshay, 'If he says that HOUSEFULL 2 is going to be a mega blockbuster, I dare anyone to stand in front of him and disagree. I personally feel this is a huge film; now how big is something that I will never know. However it is a full house of humour, action, slapstick, bromance and much more. There is nothing missing in this film and there are so many great actors in it that there is something for everyone.''
With producer Sajid Nadiadwala, this is his fifth film in a row after being seen in HOUSEFULL, HEYY BABYY, JAAN-E-MANN and MUJHSE SHAADI KAROGI. Says Akshay, ''Yes, we have been making quite a few films together. I share a great personal and professional equation with Sajid.''
