WHAT! Akshay Kumar QUITS Aanand L Rai’s Gorkha? Here’s What We Know About The Upcoming War Biopic- Reports
Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar’s career has seen a lot of ups and downs. In the recent years he has been subjected to a lot of trolling and criticism for doing back-to-back movies in short span of time. After his exit from Hera Pheri 3, it is now being reported that the actor has quit Aanand L Rai’s upcoming war-biopic Gorkha. 

Yes, you read that right! After starring in many patriotic movies and biopics, Khiladi Kumar has opted out of the upcoming movie. As reported by Hindustan Times, a source informed them that Akki has refused to be a part of a movie that might not portray the true version of the real-life events that happened.

As quoted by the publication, the source said, “Some veterans from the unit that Major General Cardozo was attached with during the war reached out, putting major question marks on his version of the events. Akshay has utmost respect for the armed forces and does not want to associate with a story that may have a shadow of doubt.”

Akshay and the team working on this movie are yet to confirm his exit. For the unversed, the movie is based on the life of Major General Ian Cardozo, a war hero who amputated his own leg with a khukri after stepping on a landmine. ALSO READ: THROWBACK!

Talking about opting out of Hera Pheri 3, the actor at a Hindustan Times Leadership Summit, he had said, “Hera Pheri has been a part of me. A lot of people have memories and even I have good memories of it. But I feel sad that we haven't made the third part for so many years. The film was offered to me but I was not satisfied with the screenplay and the script. I was not happy with it.”

This past year, Akshay Kumar hasn’t seen much success as his movies, Bachchan Pandey, Samrat Prithviraj, Raksha Bandhan, Cuttptlli and Ram Setu, tanked horribly at the box-office and received negative reviews from the critics and audience.
