Kambakth Ishq is not going to be Akshay Kumar's next release. Though it was widely anticipated that after the debacle of Chandni Chowk To China, Akshay would announce a loud comeback on the big screen with a hardcore commercial romantic action comedy like Kambakth Ishq, it isn't quite the case. Instead Akshay would be seen in 8X10 Tasveer, a thriller which would show the entertainer in a different light altogether.
Confirms a source close to Akshay Kumar, ''8X10 Tasveer will be the next release of Akshay and not Kambakth Ishq. The film is ready now and there are good reports about it since it highlights the acting skills of Akshay. After being known as an entertainer for all these years, he would be certainly hailed as a true actor after 8X10 Tasveer.''
Is the film arriving on 3rd April?
''That's right, 3rd April is the confirmed date for release'', adds the source, ''It has been a while since it has been in the making (a little more than a year) and now everyone associated with the film is very happy with the final results. The movie has turned out quite well and the first look promo has been widely appreciated as well. Audience would be in for some surprise with 8X10 Tasveer since Akshay hasn't done anything like this before. Once in a while he likes to surprise his audience. Well, this is going to be one such film.''
Directed by Nagesh Kukunoor whose last release was a forgettable Bombay To Bangkok, 8X10 Tasveer stars veterans like Sharmila Tagore, Girish Karnad and Anant Mahadevan in principal roles. Produced by Bhushan Kumar, 8X10 Tasveer is a thriller with a sci-fi and supernatural element to it.
