Does Akshay Kumar means Deepika Padukone and Nawazuddin Siddiqui are ‘Fake Actors’?

Akshay Kumar may be ruling the roost in Bollywood giving hit after hits and enjoying stardom. However, recently the actor made an ugly remark that attacked the sincerity and dedication of genuine actors, who put in their heart and soul into their character to make its lively. 

Akshay Kumar, who is busy these days working in around 3to 4 films a year, was recently asked; doesn’t he feel exhausted doing so many films? In reply Akshay said, “When we are provided A-Grade facilities like air-conditioned vanity vans to relax, dry fruits foods to eat and lovely ladies to work than how can it be taxing?” 

Indirectly taunting at serious actors, who claim it is quite tiresome to do certain characters Akshay Kumar taunted, “I think it is only ‘fake actors’ who claim about getting completely drained after doing a film.” 

It seems Akshay Kumar was indirectly attacking at Bollywood actress Deepika Padukone, who recently remarked that working in Sanjay Leela Bhansali's BAJIRAO MASTANI had been more draining than RAM LEELA.

In an interview she said, "Working in BAJIRAO MASTANI has been very difficult. It has been the toughest film of my career. I worked very hard for this film. When we did RAM LEELA it was emotionally and physically draining film, but now, RAM LEELA feels easy and effortless in comparison to Bajirao Mastani.” 

In fact Deepika Padukone is not the only actress who has made such a remake. Whenever an actor does a tough character, he does make such a statement.

Remember recently versatile actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui, who gave a mindboggling performance in MANJHI - THE MOUNTAIN MAN had candidly confessed that even after doing the film he could not come out from the character for many days. He said, “For many days I was so captivated in the character that to get away from the character I had to leave Mumbai, quite my shooting and spend quality time in the midst of nature.” 

I think since Mr. Akshay Kumar has never done such kind of complex and nerve-racking roles he may not understand their trauma and their pain. Hence he deserved to be ‘pardoned’ for terming such exceptionally brilliant actors as ‘fake actors!’ Readers what do you think??

Clash of Superstar Rajinikanth and Kamal Haasan on the eve of Ganesh Utsav! Who won the war?

It was a clash of titans on the eve of Ganesh Utsav when South Indian Cinema’s two greatest Superstars Kamal Haasan and Rajinikanth came on loggerheads for prompting their respective movies to bank the festival’s popularity. 

Kamal Haasan took the initiative by releasing the trailers of his much anticipated movie THOONGAAVANAM. Later in the evening, on the same say, Thalaiva Rajinikanth unveiled the First Look of his latest movie KABALI 

No sooner the trailer of THOONGAAVANAM and first look of KABALI were released, the social media was literally ignited with fanatical fans of both the superstars going berserk. So the multi dollar question is - who won this virtual war between the two superstars?

According to reports once again the Iconic Superstar Rajinikanth has overpowered the dynamic Superstar Kamal Haasan. As per dominance of their movies on social network it is reported that Kamal Haasan’s THOONGAAVANAM ruled for three hours while in comparison Rajinikanth’s KABALI first look dominated Twitter for an exhaustive seven hours!!!

Thus clearly establishing Rajinikanth’s supremacy over Kamal Haasan! However though Rajinikanth’s KABALI may have outscored Kamal Haasan’s THOONGAAVANAM among the film buffs but the fact remains that both Kamal Haasan and Rajinikanth are actors par excellence and have an equal authority over the medium. 

If on one hand Kamal Haasan has done artistically brilliant films like NAYAGAN, HEY RAM, ANBE SIVAM and ALAVANTHAN that exposed his potentiality as an exceptional actor. On the other hand Rajinikaanth too has proved his competence as an actor to reckon in parallel cinema with movies like MULLUM MALARUM, SRI RAGHAVENDRA and NETRIKANN! 

Thus in nutshell, the war is won by neither Rajinikaanth or by Kamal Haasan. It is just the sensation of the media that creates a pseudo conflict to generate marketing gimmick for the promotion of the movies!!! 

Interestingly once Kamal Haasan has rightly said, "Rajini and I used to release our films almost every Friday in the 1980s, but not anymore. Today, we have slowed down, not because of our age, but because of budget constraints. We can't afford to have the release of our big budget films on the same day."
