Forget the nerd who gets conned into marriage by a woman who elopes with her boyfriend on their honeymoon. Akshay is done with his nerdy avatar. According to a reliable source, in Housefull 2, he plays a character twice as wicked, destructive and devilish as the one he played in the Sajid Nadiadwala's production Mujhse Shaadi Karogi. According to a source, Akshay's character in Housefull 2 is an extension of the smartass who dupes Salman Khan in Mujhse Shaadi Karogi than the wimp who loses love each time in Housefull.
Akshay Kumar's nerdy act done to facetious heights in a spate of recent comedies has come to an end. He will no longer play the loser on screen. For starters, in the sequel to Housefull, his role has apparently gone back to the storyboard. The Golmaal writers Sajid-Farhad have been roped in to write the part of a "cool comic lothario, like a Bond-meets-Devgn-in-Golmaal."
Sajid Khan doesn't deny the James Bond influence on Housefull 2. "We've really enhanced the cool quotient for Akshay in Housefull 2.The Akshay that you'll see in Housefull 2 has never been seen before."
So is Akshay a 'Kameena James Bond' in Housefull 2?
Laughs Sajid Khan, "If Akshay played a 'Sad Sack' in Housefull, he plays the coolest character of his career in Housefull 2.Yes, James Bond is a deep influence on me. As a child I remember seeing exotic countries as location in the Bond films."
