Akshay Kumar are three projects lined up but none of them have Bollywood actresses from the big league. All his movies have newcomers as his leading lady and all this is happening as big A-lister actress such as Kareena, Katrina and Priyanka appear to be too busy with movies.
Akshay is definitely a big star in Bollywood whose films are raking in the moolah one movie after another. But off late the actor seems to be in a fix, you would know if you have observed that he is doing way too many movies with Sonakshi Sinha. Reason you ask? All the other big stars like Kareena Kapoor, Katrina Kaif, Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra seems to busy and have no dates to accommodate Akshay's films.
All these beauties have previously worked with him but after the actor had once mentored these lasses, they seem to have abandoned him. While Priyanka Chopra not working is justifiable, considering all the alleged rumours that had befallen them, it may have been the reason for them not working together. Why the actresses seem to be busy, the reason is yet to be found. According to rumours none of the top heroines were available for Akki's next films It's Entertainment, Shaukeen and Singh Is Bling. Probably that's why he had to settle for lesser names like Tamannaah Bhatia, Lisa Haydon and Kirti Sanon. "Akshay's pairing with Sonakshi has reached a point of saturation. The fact that no other actress besides her has been paired with him in the last two years explains Akshay's dilemma in finding leading ladies for his films," says a trade analyst.
According to insiders, A-lister actresses are refraining from working with him because they fear their role will get chopped at the editing table. "In Akshay's films such as Boss, Once Upon A time In Mumbaai Dobaara, Rowdy Rathore to name a few, the actresses were reduced to mere props," says our source. All of these movies has Sonakshi in the lead. For his next, Singh Is Bling, Akshay tried his best to rope in Kareena, Katrina and Priyanka but had to settle down for newcomer Kirti Sanon. While his counterpart Salman too is settling for Sonam Kapoor, Jaqueline Fernandes and Nargis Fakhri, they are still more sought after names than Akshay's fleet of newcomers.
Well let's check out the Bollywood heroines who have been saying 'No-No' to Akshay Kumar.
Akshay tried a lot for Kareena to star in Singh is Bling but had to settle for Kriti Sanon.
Katrina Kaif too seems to be busy with movies, she too din't have dates for Singh Is Bling.
The actress who once acted with Akshay in Housefull no longer seems to have dates for his movies.
It's been a long time Priyanka has paired up with Akshay Kumar, especially after the rumours of their alleged affair, we have not seen the couple do any film.
In the last two years, Sonakshi Sinha has done a lot of movies with him and now it has reached a saturation point and that's why Akshay is opting for newcomers in his films.
Tamannaah Bhatia is starring opposite Akshay Kumar in It's entertainment and we are yet to see Tamannaah deliver a worthy performance in movies.
It's surprising to see Lisa being cast the leading lady opposite Akshay in the movie, Shaukeen.
Kriti Sanon is cast opposite Akshay Kumar in his next, Singh Is Bling. Kareena was rumoured to be doing the film but due to reasons unknown, the movie will now have Kriti as the leading lady.
