Akshay Kumar signed for Rs. 31 crore in present recession timesJune 17th, 2009 - 2:57 pm ICT by Sampurn Wire
There is recession around everywhere in the world and every business person and even a lay man is trying to cut costs as much as possible. But in Bollywood despite films flopping left right and center and two months delay of big projects due to the producers v/s multiplex stand off, for some producers, recession seems to be thousand miles away.
Our trade source reveals, “In present recession times, Akshay Kumar has been signed recently for a whopping Rs. 31 crore. Industrywalas have been left dumbstruck by this development taken place in recession times and most importantly during the time when Akshay has delivered a hat-trick of flops back to back such as Jumbo, Chandni Chowk To China and Tasveer 8X10. The big moneybags producer is not an individual producer but a corporate production house that is desperate to strike it big after delivering mega flops in quick succession in last few months.”
While one section of the film trade is terming it as professional hara-kiri others are terming it as a brave step to bring back the upswing in the market. But finally are their 31 crore spent on Akshay a wise decision or a foolish decision, only time will tell. -Sampurn Media
