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 explained.
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 actor added.
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.
