Then there was the announcement that he will play T-Series founder Gulshan Kumar in a much-hyped biopic Mogul.
And now, we have details of his latest film.
The film will be titled Rutba and Akshay’s leading lady will be Jacqueline Fernandez. This is their second project together after 2015’s Brothers which sank at the box-office.

Akshay will also be co-producing Rutba, though no further details are available.
Akshay Kumar was the man who emerged on top, once the box-office numbers came in for 2016. Three of her films made it to the 100 crore club, Airlift, Rustom and Housefull 3.
Currently, we hear, Akshay is shooting for Padman in Maheshwar, a city in Khargone district about 91 km from Indore. Twinkle, who is producing the film, has also joined him. Padman is being produced under the banner Mrs. Funnybones Movies, a new production house started by Twinkle. Padman is a biopic of Arunachalam Muruganantham, a small town entrepreneur from Tamil Nadu who invented low-cost sanitary napkins to generate awareness in rural areas about its usages and hygiene.
In times where big budget films bite the dust, Akshay is a superstar who promises a return on each venture he takes on.
And we are sure that Rutba too is a step in the right direction for the bankable star.
