We have all been waiting for an action entertainer and Akshay Kumar's upcoming movie Boss has promised that it has a lot in store for us. Now we have the lead actor Akshay who tells us about the movie's action scenes and what he loves about the film.
Boss is the remake of a Malayalam movie titled Pokkiri
Raja. "When I saw the movie I loved it. The film has
entertainment, comedy and 12 sequences of hardcore action. It is
the story of two brothers and father, which is the prime reason for
me to do the story. I shared great rapport with my father and
that's why I made films like Waqt, Ek Rishta, and
Janwaar. This is my fourth film in this space," the actor
Akshay also mentioned that Boss has some tough action
sequences and stunts. "The film is deliberately made into
hand-to-hand combat because I feel cable fights are going out of
fashion. We have seen enough of this thing when a hero gives one
punch hundreds of people fall around," he said.
"In this film, we wanted to have raw action so we decided to
have close contact fight. We have a six-minute action scene in the
climax between me and the villains and without any henchmen," the
The 46-year-old has teamed up for the second time with filmmaker
Anthony D'Souza. "I don't think technically there are many
directors who can do something like him. He is outstanding in this
space. If given the right script, Anthony can come up with flying
colours," he expressed.
Apart from his movie, Akshay also spoke about the industry in
this era. He feels the era of films riding on popularity of big
stars is gone and at present films with solid content are ruling
the box office. "It is not that if a name of a big star is attached
to a movie it will automatically become hit. Only good films do
well. If the script, the content is good then film works. Films of
even big actors don't work at box office sometimes. Gone are the
days when films of superstars did well or ruled the box office all
the time," Akshay said. Boss will hit the theatres on
October 16 this year.
