The Bollywood industry is dynamic and fragile. It is not new, that even the biggest stars of the entertainment industry have to face the lows. Now, the action superstar, the Khiladi of the Bollywood industry, is facing a similar thing. Akshay Kumar’s three-film deal with Fox Star Studios might no longer exist. Yes, you’ve read it right! As Fox Star Studio exits film business, it leaves many in shock and Akshay Kumar without a deal.
Two years ago, in November 2018, Fox Star Studios announced that it has signed a three-film deal with superstar Akshay Kumar’s banner Cape Of Good Films. The fans of both the bigwigs were elated after getting this news. This mega association promised a great deal of entertainment to its audience and a major profit for the investors.
Fox Star Studio exits film business:
The first movie as part of this partnership was Mission Mangal, the super-hit 2019 sci-fi drama. Fox and Akshay then followed it up with Laxmii. It was scheduled to release in cinemas on Eid 2020. But due to the shutting of theatres in the lockdown, it got a direct OTT release. On Disney+ Hotstar, on Diwali. Now, if you are wondering about the third film, then sadly, it won’t be happening.
A source says, “The three-film deal was signed after Akshay Kumar and Fox Star Studios enjoyed working with each other in Jolly LLB 2, one of the biggest hits of 2017, and a solo production of Fox. When the deal was signed in 2018, no one anticipated that the studio would exit the business and would be taken over by Disney. It seems that Disney is not interested in getting into film production in India. Also, it’ll prefer to keep the intellectual property rights of the films, but our artists and producers here don’t expect that from studios. As a result, it’s a question mark on the future of this deal and whether this third film in question would be made in near future.”
