Akshay Kumar is in full swing as he promotes the upcoming release, Bachchhan Paandey. The film is directed by Farhad Samji and stars Kriti Sanon, Arshad Warsi, Jacqueline Fernandez and Pankaj Tripathi. Akshay’s last release was Sooryavanshi in 2021, which turned out to be a hit. The release of that film in cinema halls gave everyone the confidence to release more films amid the pandemic.
If one looks at Akshay’s filmography, the actor has done many multi-starrers. From Main Khiladi Tu Anari to Sooryavanshi, the Good Newwz actor has never shied away from sharing the screen space with another top male actor. During the media interaction for Bachchhan Paandey, Akshay was asked why he chooses such films and why it’s not such a common practice in Bollywood among other male actors.
Akshay Kumar answered, “I would not say names but there is a dirt of people thinking, actor thinking that let’s s not do a two-hero, three hero films. I keep on scratching my head and I don’t understand why they don’t want to do it. It is so wonderful to do a three hero subject, four hero subject, even five hero subject – what happens in Hollywood.”
“What happens here is that they don’t want to do it. Getting two actors in a film together is also a task. One has to beg. I don’t understand why they behave like that. So things will change I presume. One day it will happen,” shared the actor.
Further, Akshay Kumar revealed the reason why he agreed to do multi-starrers. The Prithviraj actor stated, “(I do it because) the script is nice. I want to be part of a good film. I want to be part of a hit film rather than what is my role. If it is a three hero subject and my role is normal but the story is great, I would want to be a part of it. In future, when people talk about the hit film they will remember I was part of it.”

He concluded, “I don’t understand what kind of Math they are thinking. Their Math is wrong there. We should do 3 hero films, we should do 2 hero films, we should get into it. It’s a wrong calculation they have.”
Meanwhile, Bachchhan Paandey is slated to release in theatres on March 18.
