Akshay Kumar is the new king of Bollywood. The year 2007 proved to be Akki's as he gave four back to back hits, a feat not even the Khan's have achieved so far. Namastey London, Heyy Babyy, Bhool Bhulaiyaa and Welcome grossed with both hands in the Box Office and took Akshay to new heights in stardom. However it also had a side effect to it and the once action hero of the industry got branded as a comic superstar.
Abbas and Mustan are all set to make a romantic movie with the new superstar. Akshay wants to prove his versatile image to the audience and is keen on doing non comic roles for some time. Among the movie lined up for this year Singh is Kinng will have him play the role of a gangster and Chandni Chowk to China will see the actor doing some comedy.
