Akshay Kumar is one superstar who is always busy with back to back hits and movies in his kitty. The actor is hardly on a break unless with his family vacationing abroad. In this year itself, he has had PadMan, Gold, 2.0 release, both of which did good business at the box office. Akshay's feat in this regard is unbeatable. The actor is also ranked ahead of Aamir Khan and Shah Rukh Khan in the Forbes Celebrity India 100 list.

The actor recently started shooting for the movie Mission Mangal which also stars Vidya Balan, Sonakshi Sinha, Taapsee Pannu, Kirti Kulhari among others in pivotal roles. When asked if he feels apprehensive about working with not one but almost 5 heroines in a movie, Akshay told DNA, "That script demands the women to be ahead of us. They are the real heroes of the mission. Mission Mangal is interesting and inspiring. I’ve no shame in doing a movie that is led by women. At this stage, I don’t have to think much about my screen time. Whenever people approach me, I just see if my role is making an impact. If it does, and I have dates, I do it."

It is also very rare to see so many artists come together for one movie. When told, Akshay responded, "I’m happy that these girls are not bothered about the fact that there are five female leads in the same film. That ‘main kyu karu’ attitude isn’t there. I don’t think five heroes will come together for a movie like this.”

Mission Mangal is being co-produced by Akshay's production house, Cape Of Good Films and Fox Star Studios.


True but you are highest paid actor of the movie.

Sure but what about the fact that this script has been stolen from a woman?!? You seem to be ignoring that and are quite comfortable with that!

From whom was it stolen? May i know the name

Good way of thinking. Wish more top male actors felt this way.
