With four back to back 150 crore grossers in a year, Akshay Kumar has a box office record that no other Bollywood actor would be able to break.
Akshay Kumar is currently the biggest Bollywood star. The actor is going through a dream phase of his career with four back-to-back 150 crore movies in 2019. While the other actors are still struggling to get a release date, Akshay Kumar has 10 movies in his kitty. His last four theatrical releases, Kesari, Mission Mangal, Housefull 4 and Good Newwz crossed Rs 150 crore mark at the domestic box office.
With his last theatrical release Good Newwz crossing Rs 150 crore, Akshay has achieved a box office record, no other Bollywood actor would be able to break in the near future. Akshay Kumar has created history by delivering four back to back 150 crores in a single year. In fact, it is the second time that Akshay has made a hattrick of 100 crore movies in a year. In 2016, Akshay Kumar’s three consecutive movies Airlift, Rustom and Housefull 3 earned more than Rs 100 crore.
While a 100 crore hattrick is not a big deal in Bollywood. Salman Khan, SRK, Ranbir and Hrithik have achieved this feat. The real deal is the hattrick of 100 crore films in a single year. With Rustom in 2016, Akshay Kumar became the first Bollywood actor to deliver three 100 crores films in a single year. Now, the actor has repeated this feat.
A hattrick of 100 crores films in a single year is something even the Khans of Bollywood can’t achieve as they don’t deliver more than two movies in a year. Breaking this record for any young actor would be an uphill task. It seems that this record would be held by Akshay Kumar for a long time.
A hattrick of 100 crores films in a single year is not an easy feat. Only Deepika Padukone managed to achieve it with four back to back 100 crores films in 2013. Deepika Padukone’s Race 2, Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, Chennai Express and Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela crossed 100 crores.
Akshay is miles ahead of other actors when it comes to consistency. With three back to back 200 crore movies in a year, he has created a record which is almost impossible for other actors to achieve.
