Akshay Kumar has single handedly given numerous box office successes, but has also been a part of projects that have had parallel leads and multi-star casts. His recent release, ‘Mission Mangal’ (2019) is also a multi-starrer but he has no insecurities in the same. Kumar says it’s sad that actors of this generation don’t want to work together like he has done many times before.
Kumar revealed, “To be honest and without taking names, actors in our industry still don’t understand the fact that they should do two-hero or three-hero subject. They are not doing it. I have tried to find out why they don’t want to do it. Everybody wants to do a solo hero subject. The earlier generation – my generation – did it. They even worked in three-hero subjects. These days two heroes hardly want to work together. Even if they do, they do it after repeated requests. This doesn’t happen in Hollywood. It only happens here and it is very sad. I would love to work in a four-hero or five-hero subject. It doesn’t matter as long as your role is fine and you know you are part of a good film. I don’t know, is it the insecurity that matters to them (actors of today) or anything else, I have failed to understand,” as according to India Today.
‘Mission Mangal’ also stars Vidya Balan, Taapsee Pannu, and Sonakshi Sinha.
