Once, Askhay Kumar was considered Bollywood’s top hero giving tough competition to Khans and other tier 1 heroes. He used to do films at a rapid pace, with at least 3-4 films of his getting released every year. His movies had that “minimum guarantee” tag as well which made producers run after him.
However, the situation has changed drastically over the last couple of years, especially after COVID. Surprisingly, Akshay Kumar’s films have been getting disastrous results. His recent films Bachchan Pandey, Samrat Prithviraj, Rakshabandhan, Cutputli (OTT release), Ram Setu, Selfiee have been disasters.
The more shocking fact is the opening day numbers as Akshay Kumar’s films were getting humiliating numbers. The closing numbers shouldn’t be stated to save embarrassment. Keeping these things in mind, probably, the makers of Akshay Kumar’s next OMG2 are preferring the OTT release. It is said that the producers have struck a deal with Voot and Jio Cinema and the movie will be made available to stream very soon.
