Akshay Kumar Opens Up On Demonetization’s Effect On Bollywood! Here’s What He Has To Say


Akshay Kumar is undoubtedly one of the most loved actors of Bollywood and has left behind even Khans of the industry in many aspects! He’s among the top earners of not only India but also the world and at present, Khiladi Kumar is doing more films than any other actor!

In 2016, he has done three superhit movies, i.e., “Airlift”, “Housefull 3” and “Rustom” which is an amazing thing in itself, taking into consideration the fact that he is the only superstar to give three blockbusters back-to-back in just one year and this way, 2016 was exceptionally successful for him. The 49-yr actor is sad that it’s finally ending. In his words,

“I am sad that it’s over. Starting a new year can be daunting. After working so hard it doesn’t seem to matter what you achieved that year, it will be forgotten by the next. But when you keep as busy as me, it’s nothing but excitement heading my way so I’ll never crib. I’ll only ever yearn for more.”

What’s more, the “Baby” star hopes the same type of treatment and kindness from 2017 as well.

When Akshay Kumar was asked about demonetization’s effect on the film industry, he said that it has hit Bollywood very hard and admired those who have been hit the hardest by it and yet managed in an excellent way! In his words,

“Unfortunately, Bollywood was hit and hit hard, and I’m not surprised. Even my staff wasn’t able to go to the cinema on their usual Sundays off because they couldn’t spare 500 bucks. I can only imagine how hard it’s hit many areas of India. But everyone has had to sacrifice for the greater good. The movies will recover, eventually.
But hats off to those that were hit the hardest, yet handled it so brilliantly.”
