Much has been said and written about Akshay Kumar's huge line up of films this year which kick-starts with the release of HOUSEFULL 2 in April. While each of his four upcoming films this year (including ROWDY RATHORE, JOKER and KHILADI 786 - MADE IN PUNJAB) is either on floors or set to release, soon Akshay would also begin shoot for ONCE UPON A TIME IN MUMBAAI - 2. Guess this is one film which has already created quite some positive vibes in the industry and Akshay must be aware of the audience's expectations.
"I know," acknowledges Akshay, "Well, it's an incredible sequel to be a part of and the positive feedback that I've received already has been extremely encouraging. I only hope I can live up to the hype really and the rest is already written."
Well, audience for sure are rooting for his ONCE UPON A TIME IN MUMBAAI 2, more so since it is not just a brand that is being nourished but because they wish to know 'what happens next' in this story.
Akshay nods in agreement here, "I have to live up to the hype, the brand name, the sequel and the fact that the story has to be even more interesting than the already brilliant story that has been portrayed in 2010. Well, as you can see, nerves never get the better of me. I am extremely excited about this film and I know for a fact that Milan Luthria will do a fantastic job. He is a great director and we saw that all over again in THE DIRTY PICTURE."
