AR Murugadoss’s Holiday starring Akshay Kumar and Sonakshi Sinha is doing amazingly well at the box office with collections almost making it to Rs 100 crores over the weekend! The film has thus joined Jai Ho and 2 States as one of the biggest Bollywood movies of the year.
And Akshay Kumar is definitely happy with the outcome of the remake of the original Tamil version Thuppakki which starred Vijay – so much so that now he has shown interest in ARM’s next venture starring Vijay, Kaththi!
Yes, it seems the actor wants to buy the remake rights to that one as well and for good reason. After all it’s the manthra of show business as a whole – unique is good, but if something works you better milk it the best you can! And the ARM magic is definitely working big time now..
Akshay, amidst all of this, has also revealed another interest – guess what.. he wants to act in a Tamil movie very soon!
Now, how about that? Not only are the Kollywood flicks being remade up north, but now the biggies in the north want to make a mark here as well! The winds sure seem to be changing directions, folks.
We do not know at this point if ARM is the one Akshay had in mind as the director when he expressed this interest. It makes sense considering the success the director is having in Hindi though Holiday is his maiden venture there.
They quite clearly have a good working relationship now but only time will tell if the Khiladi will be playing for the Tamil audiences anytime soon.
