In a career over two and half decades, Akshay Kumar has only acted in three films for the premiere production house of Bollywood, Yash Raj Films. None of these three were solo, and one of them was a merely extended guest role sort of act.
The reason can be partly attributed to the fact that Yash Raj Films were not into production as aggressive as they were in the last decade compared to the time Akshay Kumar made his debut. Even considering that, he has done only one movie after the YRF became a brand. Tashan came to Akshay Kumar precisely a decade back at the heights of his stardom. But the way it was managed at release must have left a bad experience for all involved.
Now, after a decade, once again there is a buzz that Aditya Chopra is looking at signing Akshay Kumar for a big one. Chak De India fame Shamit Amin will reportedly direct it. More details on the exciting project are awaited.
