Touted as one of the biggest stars in Bollywood, Akshay Kumar has forged an impressive oeuvre over the years covering almost every genre in the film industry. While many superstars continue the trend of releasing films every other year, the Khiladi actor gained a reputation for announcing films for every season in 365 days. Although this might be a feast for his fans, it has also become fodder for memes and talking points of many critics who questioned his commitment to his undertaken projects.
The discussion was further flared after his film Prithviraj tanked at the box office resulting in the makers blaming Akshay Kumar for his inability to give his all to the project. In a recent interview with Times Of India, the 54-year-old broke his silence over the allegations by stating that he is committed to finishing the films on time causing minimal financial burden.
The veteran actor also shared insight on his professional life by claiming that he takes the most amount of vacation for any other star in the industry; which is quite the popular belief considering we get 3-4 film announcements starring the actor. He also revealed that he works half day on Saturday and never works on Sunday.
Interestingly, Akshay Kumar told the outlet that he follows a strict schedule for filming by claiming, ”I spend only 8 hours on a film set in the day, but I don’t spend a single minute of those 8 hours in a vanity van. I am always standing on the floor of the movie set,” Lastly, he said, ”My 8 hours are equal to 14-15 hours of any other star. That’s my commitment to the movies.” The actor is currently gearing up for the release of the Aanand L Rai directorial Raksha Bandha with Bhumi Pednekar on August 11, 2022.
