"Yes, including Special 26, Akshay Kumar now has seven successes in two years after Patiala House. His only flop during this period has been Joker and every other film of his in the interim period has made money", informs a veteran trade source.
"This is a huge comeback from the days of Tees Maar Khan and Action Replayy when fingers were being pointed at his stardom. However, with Akshay's films collecting over 400 crores last year, the highest that any actor has ever scored in a single year, and 2013 starting well too with Special 26, there are reasons to rejoice for the industry. He is the only actor who is continuing to do 4-5 films a year and still bringing in audience time and again. Now with Special 26, he has seen very good critical acclaim coming his way as well. If this isn't versatility, what else is", questions a filmmaker who has also been his close associate.
With Once Upon A Time in Mumbaai 2, Boss and Thuppakki remake to release in the second half of the year and a couple of productions from Grazing Goat arriving as well, guess there is no stopping Akki.
