Although director Neeraj Pandey's debut directorial venture, A WEDNESDAY, featuring great actors like Naseeruddin Shah and Anupam Kher garnered huge critical acclaim and commercial success as well, it was not a big grosser.

However Neeraj Pandey's teaming up with top commercial superstar Akshay Kumar seems to have changed all that. The film has not only wooed the critics (despite Akshay!) but has also managed to put quite impressive figures as well. And despite a non-glamorous and unconventional role, Akshay Kumar's star power has done the magic.

As per the stats with us, unlike A WEDNESDAY, which had netted around 12 crore during the lifetime run, Neeraj's latest offering, SPECIAL 26, has already netted in excess of 50 crore, till just the second weekend (10-days from India), and is now managing better collections than the new releases, MURDER 3 and JAYANTABHAI KI LUV STORY.

Well, here is hoping that Akshay Kumar now teams up with some of the other good and renowned directors!
