Lately, Akshay Kumar’s work ethics are being questioned extensively, owing to his claims of completing his film in merely 40 days! Sadly, netizens and a few stars from the fraternity believe that might be the reason for the downfall of his films.
Now, pan-India star Ram Charan has jokingly taken a dig at his colleague and fellow Bollywood star Akshay Kumar who discussed several aspects of Indian Cinema. Charan even quipped that his introduction scene in RRR took 35 days, whereas Akshay completes his films in 40 days.ALSO READ | Akshay Kumar Gets Candid About Failure Of Bollywood Films; Plans To Reduce His Fee By 30-40% To Cut Down Budget For Successful Movies-READ BELOW!
For the unversed, Ram Charan enjoys a massive fan following in Telugu cinema. However, it was SS Rajamouli’s RRR which made him a national superstar. His and Jr NTR's portrayals of Alluri Sitaram Raju and Komaram Bheem in SS Rajamouli's period action extravaganza were loved by the fans across the nation and their fan-following continues to soar even today.
Ram Charan and Akshay Kumar recently visited the national capital for an event and discussed several aspects of Indian cinema.
Speaking at the Hindustan Times Leadership Summit, Ram Charan seemingly took a dig at Akshay and said, "Certain movies will finish in that much time, Akshay sir finished a movie in 40 days or so I heard. We shot the scene for 35 days with nearly 3000 to 4000 people."
He continued, "I have dust allergy since childhood, in fact, I had even undergone sinus surgery. Look at my fate, I had to work in dust for 35 days. As soon the director would say cut, my assistant would wave the white flag to me. I would be engulfed in dust. Thanks to my master, SS Rajamouli, the scene came out really well."
Unfortunately, Akshay Kumar’s multiple releases tanked at the box office, namely Ram Setu, Raksha Bandhan, Samrat Prithviraj and Bachchhan Paandey. They turned out to be a massive disaster and the filmmakers had a hard time making money out of them. Meanwhile, fans even trolled him for completing his films within 40 days as claimed by the actor himself in several of his interviews.
