Akshay Kumar hires Salman Khan’s ex-manager Reshma Shetty

Akshay Kumar has hired Salman Khan’s former manager Reshma Shetty of celebrity management firm Matrix, to manage his professional commitments.

Akshay is one of the busiest actors with the most number of releases annually, compared to his contemporaries. After delivering back-to-back hits like ‘Airlift’, ‘Rustom’, ‘Jolly LLB 2’, and winning a National Award, the actor has his hands full with projects like ‘Toilet – Ek Prem Katha’, ‘Pad Man’, ‘Crack’, ‘Gold’ etc., besides other events and endorsements.

The ‘Khiladi’ Kumar is surely in need of an efficient manager and who could be better than Reshma! She is said to be responsible for getting Salman several big-ticket endorsements, shows and movies for a long time, before they parted ways, earlier this year.

Salman returned to his in-house model of managing his work and both the actor and Reshma’s company released an official statement announcing the end of their nine-year-long partnership.

It is said that Matrix will look into both personal PR (Public relations) of Akshay as well as his film projects. Reshma’s clientele already includes names like Alia Bhatt, Kareena Kapoor, Sidharth Malhotra, and Varun Dhawan to name a few.

It is to see how Reshma’s purported clout in the industry can help the already successful Akshay in getting high profile shows and more endorsements.

Akshay, who is currently on a month-long break for his annual family vacation, will be next seen in ‘Toilet – Ek Prem Katha’ starring Bhumi Pednekar, which will hit screens on August 11.
