Is this the same man we are watching practically every quarter? One look at the promo of Housefull 3 and you are just amazed to see how Akshay Kumar manages to showcase a different facet of his acting talent film after film. Just three months back, it was Airlift. While one continues to marvel at that performance of his, here comes Housefull 3 where he makes a grand entry, hold your breath, hanging on to Jacqueline Fernandez‘s leg, who by the way is sitting in a helicopter no less.
This could well be the ‘baap of all entries’ this year, and something tells me that the fun element has just begun.
On a more serious note, Akshay is indeed taking his profession quite seriously and that means that other than the accolades he is earning for his serious performances in Airlift, Brothers, Gabbar Is Back, Baby and Holiday, there is a parallel universe of the likes of Housefull, Singh Is Bliing and Entertainment that is not going away anywhere. Enjoying a dual citizenship of sorts where he can step in and step out at will, Akshay is clearly enjoying the best of both worlds and keeping the audience, Box Office and of course himself, a lot busy.
Oh yes, there is always a debate around what critics like v/s what audience want to see. Well, he has managed to get critics on his side too, and rather successfully, with his last crop of films. As for the moolah, let’s not forget that the biggest opening day of his career was scored by Singh Is Bliing.
There, that says it all!
No wonder, in his inimitable style, he is cracking the jokes in Housefull 3. However, you know that it would be back to some serious business in just a couple of months after the film’s release, once it would be time to bring on Rustom. Of what one has seen of the film so far, it is going to be one cracker-jacker of a romantic thrilling drama and the Navy Officer act is set to only add on to his fan base, particularly women.
For now though, it seems he is targeting youth and families with Housefull 3, something that should keep the versatility element going this summer.
