Bollywood High on ACTION Films

Come 2013, and Bollywood is going to be where all the action is —
literally. While actors like Akshay Kumar, John Abraham and Ajay
Devgn have adopted this as their preferred genre, other stars better
known for romantic films are also on board the action bandwagon.

Reigning kings of Action :

Akshay Kumar & Salman Khan are arguably the biggest action heroes in
Bollywood. It’s hardly surprising then that Salman stars in Sajid
Nadiadwala’s directional debut, Kick (a remake of a 2009 Telugu hit
film). Nadiadwala says, “Salman’s last three action films have all
crossed Rs. 150 crore. With other action films like Krrish 3 and
Dhoom:3, I’ll need to take Kick to a different level.” Salman is also rumoured to be starring in another remake of a Telugu film called
Brundavanam (2010).
Akshay also has multiple action films lined up — Neeraj Pandey’s
Special Chhabis, AR Murugadoss’s Thuppakki remake, the remake of
Ramana (2002; Tamil), and the Hindi version of Pokkiri Raja (2010;
Malayalam). The remake run continues with Ajay Devgn’s Himmatwala (the 1983 original). Sajid Khan, who is directing the film, says, “Mindless
action doesn’t work. It requires the right emotions.”

Action Sequel :

One of the most-awaited sequels of 2013 — Dhoom:3 — will star
Aamir, who isn’t the first person you expect in an action film. With
international talent roped in, the stunts are expected to be Hollywood-
class. Hrithik Roshan will be back to his flying and fighting ways in
papa Rakesh Roshan’s Krrish 3. Saif Ali Khan and John Abraham will
start off the year with Race 2. Later, John has the all-guns-blazing Shootout At Wadala, based on the life of gangster Manya Surve. Ajay
will also star in Rohit Shetty’s Singham 2 and Akshay in Once Upon A
Time In Mumbaai 2.

Romantic heroes turned action stars?

Shah Rukh Khan and Shahid Kapoor are better known for their
comedies and romantic films. They do, however, have RA.One (2011)
and Kaminey (2009) to their credit, respectively. Next year will see all
three of them in action films. SRK has Rohit Shetty’s Chennai Express,
while Shahid stars in the masala film Phata Poster Nikla Hero, and
Prabhudheva’s Namak. What’s the formula for success, we wonder? “Wanted and Dabangg started the trend. But the script and stories still
have to be fresh. Indian audiences want emotions,” says Race 2 and
Phata Poster Nikla Hero producer, Ramesh Taurani.

    @who is thgis idiot writer who doesnt know a thing. akshay kumar defintely is not in the same league ass alman khan. akshay is a B grader, salman is the biggets star of bollywood for 24 years now. akshay has never been able to give the biggestb hits of the year, salman has done it 8 times and poised for the 9th. stop playing these dirty triucks and pretending akshay is in the same league as salman.

    1. iitianWay

      after seeing ETT’s action sequences…..u r getting frustated.

  2. ank_16n

    “”akshay kumar defintely is not in the same league ass alman khan””

    aakhir muh se Sachayi nikal hi gayi…..

    hahahahahahahaha…….

    1. ank_16n

      Danish yeh tumne hi likha hai…..maine apni taraf se nhi likha……
      as I don’t use such language……

  3. ank_16n

    yes Akshay can’t be considered in the same league as salman because when they stand together all know who is Standing Tall among them……

    and moreover….
    one more reason why Akshay can’t be in same league as Salman is
    Akshay’s Disaster Joker(21 cr) is still higher grossing than Salman’s Flop– Main aur mrs khanna(8 cr), Heroes(13 cr) , Hello(12 cr) Yuvvraaj(17 cr) and God tussi Great ho(13 cr)……

    @danish
    Salman kal hi Action Sikha hai ,Akki ki movies dekh ker ! Shitt D Grade Actor Salman Khan!

  5. danish

    @iitianway – i m getting frsutrated looking at ett collections of 200 cr.

    @ank – koi point nahin mila to pakad liya —– i mean typo!

    aur inflation adjustment bhi bhool gaye kya? 2012 ki film ka comparison 2007 ki film se?

    @adtya – kal action seekh ke salman 200 cr kamaat hai akshay 20 saal mein 130 cr tak hi pahuncha hai. ( and unlike ank i have taken the highest grossers of both for fair comparison)

    1. Aditya007

      danish,
      “salman 200 cr kamaat hai akshay 20 saal mein 130 cr tak hi pahuncha hai. ”
      Kahn se Kiya? & Kab se BOI[According to This-186cr]ko chhood diya ??
      And Dude RR ke 133cr hai[BOI]
      Tumbhi apni bat per nahi rukte ho?

    ““Wanted and Dabangg started the trend.”

    lol then what was Ghajini…it started the 100 cr club and also re-introduced the masala action genre.

    Danish when did ETT reach 200 cr? In ur dreams?

  7. danish

    @aman – ghajinis pehle garv aayi thi. actually salman had never lft the action genre, even wen they were not flavour of the season. tumko na bhool paayenge, suryavanshi, veergati and may more of them. all came much before ghajini.

    and 200 cr is a runded figure. i am not boi who will make an aamir film cross a landmark by 2 cr (3 idiots 202 cr) or a sharukh film by even rounding off ( my name is khan worldwide 200 cr gross) but stop an ajay devgan or a salman film by a few crores (singham, ett, bol bachchan ec)

    everyone know the system is not so accurate that all colections are known to the last rupee. there are still many non-computerized ticket counters in the country and many films of salman/ajay etc keep playing in the interiors and keep collecting. obviously BOi chhoses to round off in favour of som stars and against soem other.

  8. aman

    danish tum meri baat samjhe nahi…theek se samjhata hoon….

    sallu jab garv, tumko na bhool paayenge, suryavanshi, veergati jaisi films karta tha na to un filmon ki haalat dekh kar kisi aur mein himmat hi nahi hoti thi ki woh trend follow kare :D

    waise woh daur pseudo-intellectuals ka daur tha aur sallu-chap fans bahut kam the. phir aaya recession aur bahut se pseudo-intellectuals bekaar ho gaye aur muflisi ke maare mechanic, rikshawwaale aur jhaadu pocha lagaane waale ban gaye…unka multiplex jaane ka shauq bhi dhuan ho gaya…usi time pe ghajini release hui aur kamaal ka business usne kiya…aamir chahta to aur ek masala film bana kar uska double kamaa sakta tha…lekin usne a dusri type ki film bana li (3 idiots)…yeh dekh sallu ke andar ka action hero jag gaya aur usne bhi wanted release kar di par ghajini ke kamar se upar hi nahi aa payi :P

    ek woh din tha aur ek aaj ka din hai..abhi tak sallu 2009 ka film ka total bhi nahi tod paa raha hai 3 guna prints ke saath…kya star hai :D

    1. rafee

      Aman Wanted was announced and even its shooting was started much more before Aamir signed ghajini.

      and 3idiots 25december 2009 ko release hui thi aur 3guna prints?? 3idiots kahan 1000prints pe release hui thi? bakwas mat kar
      3idiots was released in 1550prints which was HIGHEST EVER FOR THAT TIME
      http://businessofcinema.com/bollywood-news/3-idiots-releases-with-highest-ever-print-screen-count/30196

      And dude 3idiots is the MOST ACCEPTED MOST LIKED LOVED FILM OF THE DECADE like HAHK or GADAR ad ETT was just a decent film and it fell short by just 2-3crores. isse kehte hai superstar jo thik thak fimon ko b blockbuster banata hai not like Aamir who needs best filmmaker like Rajkumar hirani for giving biggest hit Hirani ke sath to Sanjay dutt ki b solo film badi hit ban jati hai :D Salman ki agar aisi koi movie most liked loved aa gayi na then Sky will be the limit. :)

    A big ROFL at this – “Wanted was announced and even its shooting was started much more before Aamir signed ghajini.”

    Now, take a look at this statement from Aamir
    Aamir’s statement- “I will be doing the remake of Ghajini a Tamil film and the original director A.R.Murugadoss will be directing it”.

    Note the article is dated 5th Apr 2006
    http://www.sify.com/movies/asin-with-aamir-news-tamil-kkfvnOgejfg.html

    Now, Pokiri release date is 28th Apr 2006
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pokiri_%282006_film%29

    There are many more links i can provide before 28 Apr 06 which has Aamir anouncing Ghajini remake

    LMAO at the lies coming out from some fanatics
