Akshay is currently having a hard time both in his professional as well as personal life. His recent films failed to do well at the box office and his personal life doesn't look better. He received lots of flak for making his wife Twinkle Khanna unbutton his jeans pants at the recently ended Lakme India Fashion Week. He ended up apologising for the indecent act.
It maybe recalled that Akshay had a dream run in 2007. He had four releases in Namastey London, Heyy Babyy, Bhool Bhulaiyaa and Welcome, and all of them went on to become big hits. 2008 was a mixed one with Singh Is Kinng making up the failure of Tashan and Jumbo. But come 2009, he has being in dire straits.
Akshay started 2009 with the release of his ambitious film Chandni Chowk To China but it failed terribly at the box office. Adding more salt to the wounds, his latest release 8x10 Tasveer also failed to make a good opening. It is said that the film is bound to fail.
The pressure is on Akshay now. He would be out of demand if his next two releases Kambakkht Ishq and Blue fail. Let's hope the Action King bounces back quickly!
