Is ‘Housefull 3’ really Akshay Kumar’s toughest film?
Despite all the negative reviews that Sajid-Farhad’s latest film, ‘Housefull 3‘ got, it has gone on to become a rage at the box office. According to trade analysts, this multi-starrer collected Rs 31.51 crore in just two days. The cast led by Akshay Kumar will hopefully make it’s money, and revive Abhishek Bachchan‘s career as well. The leading ladies, Jacqueline Fernandez, Lisa Haydon, and Nargis Fakhri will also step up a few notches of stardom. The makers must have already begun planning the fourth instalment of this franchise. While the big numbers at the BO didn’t come as a surprise, but what almost shocked us was Akshay’s statement he made in a recent interview post release.
Talking to a leading daily, Akshay said, “To be honest, as an actor, this was the toughest film to do. I mean really tough. You remember the scene in the film when I have to fall down the stairs? I actually had to go through the ordeal of falling down the stairs in that way. My knees were hurt, my back was bruised, but I still had to maintain that look on my face, so the audiences could laugh.” Now this is something really hard to believe – is the Khiladi actor making a lame joke at himself, or did he really mean it? A quick look at Akki’s films, and you can see the kind of life-threatening stunts he has done in his illustrious career as an actor.
It is hard to believe that just falling down a fleet of stairs made ‘Housefull 3′ Akshay’s toughest film. At most he might have hurt himself a bit, but saying that it was his toughest film is stretching things too far. Especially for somebody who has done hardcore action films like Baby, Holiday, ROWDY RATHORE etc., this statement sounds like a joke. What do you think about this statement from Akshay?
