Anees Bazmee on Akshay Kumar’s bad box office phase

In a conversation with Siddharth Kannan, Anees was asked about Akshay’s box office slump. To which the filmmaker said, that it happens with every actor and it’s a cycle that goes on. He said, “Akshay is a star. Many of these stars have had good times and bad times. It happens. Sometimes their films don’t work, then two films will work and it goes on. He is such a beautiful person. He can dance, do action, he does fantastic comedy, he can cry, he is a complete actor. There can be times when he chose the wrong script, or the wrong people to work with who don’t do justice to his talent. I don’t know the exact reason.”





Anees added that he has a long-standing relationship with Akshay and that working with the actor has taught him discipline. He claimed that Akshay is one of the most punctual and sharp actors in Bollywood working with him, even the others developed that discipline. Anees said even though they don't get together or hang out all the time meeting him is like getting back in touch with an old friend. It appears that after he had an accident, Akshay came to meet him and advised him to take physiotherapy seriously.
