Akshay Kumar and Rohit Shetty’s ‘Fallout’: What is the REAL Story Behind the Prank
Akshay Kumar and Rohit Shetty are working together in Sooryavanshi
Akshay Kumar is one of the cleverest superstars of Hindi cinema. He gives out the vibes of a simple unassuming son of the soil. But under that veneer of earthiness beats a shrewd street-smart heart. Hence when news of his differences with his Sooryavanshi director Rohit Shetty broke out, Akshay, in his prankish wisdom, decided to turn the story into a benign joke. A video showing Akshay and Rohit at each other’s throat, was put out by Akshay to ridicule and debunk the fallout theory.
This is a very old and tried-and-tested ploy to deflect attention from the truth. Drown the news report in laughter. However loud whispers about the director’s differences with his leading man refused to disperse.
Says a source extremely clued into the issue, “Rohit and Akshay had their first major differences when Rohit agreed to postpone the release date of Sooryavanshi because it clashed with Salman Khan’s film. Akshay was miffed that he wasn’t taken into confidence. Since then, Rohit and Akshay have been cold towards each other. There are no major fights or anything on the sets. Both are too professional to get openly nasty. But everyone on the sets can see they are not friends.”
Akshay’s partnership with Rohit Shetty was considered one of the biggest collaborations in Bollywood in recent times and fans have been eagerly awaiting their film, considering the blockbuster status that each of them enjoy. Akshay has had huge hits in 2019 beginning with Kesari and then moving on to Mission Mangal. He will be next seen in Good Newwz with Kareena Kapoor that will release in December.
