Akshay Kumar, Sajid Khan at loggerheads
All is not well between Akshay Kumar and director Sajid Khan. they have worked together in hot movies like ‘Housefull’ and ‘Housefull 2’ and now it seems a franchise of the hit series is not possible as both of them are at loggerheads. It all started when Sajid Khan gives himself credit for Akshay’s successful career after a series of flop movies.
When the 41-year-old filmmaker was quizzed why he doesn’t work with newcomers, he retorted, “Housefull 1 and Housefull 2, sort of, got Akshay out of a bad patch of six to seven flop films. He had a run of six to seven flop films, after which ‘Housefull’ became the first big grosser in 2010. Then again, he had a patch of six to seven films. Then again, it was Housefull 2.”
Sajid Khan’s unpleasant comment did not go well with Akki and the action hero straightway told him that he does not want to interact with him.
“It was a big showdown. The conversation ended
with Akshay telling Sajid he didn`t want to interact with him anymore,” the
daily quoted Akki’s friend as saying.
“Akshay is very angry and has told his buddies about it. Even filmmakers like Karan Johar, Rajkumar Hirani and Farhan Akhtar don`t pass such remarks. Like every other actor, Akshay has had his share of highs and lows. More significantly, he is on a firm footing right now,” the friend added.
When the report of the tussle went to Nadiadwala’s ears, he decided to boot out Sajid Khan out of ‘Housefull 3’ as the producer is very fond of Akshay, he considers him his family and not ready to make ‘Housefull 3’ without him.
