Although Mission Mangal has remained behind in breaking this record, the numbers have been among the best in terms of Akshay Kumar’s filmography, and with the coming days, only bigger records are expected to be shattered with the kind of pace the film keeps at the box office.
Bollywood superstar Akshay Kumar finds it “sad” that actors are unwilling to sign movies with two or more heroes these days, instead they opt for the movies that give them solo-hero subjects.
“To be honest and without taking names, actors in our industry still don’t understand the fact that they should do two-hero or three-hero subject. They are not doing it. I have tried to find out why they don’t want to do it. Everybody wants to do a solo hero subject. The earlier generation – my generation – did it. They even worked in three-hero subjects,” Akshay said at a promotional event for his new film, “Mission Mangal” on Friday.
