Akshay Kumar has proved that he is among Bollywood’s foremost actors with three back-to-back hits in the year 2016 itself. He gave us liked-and-loved Airlift, followed it up by laugh riot Housefull 3 and has now given another multi-crore earner Rustom. And there are still four months to go. When he is not starring in a film, he still manages to walk away with accolades, a la his guest appearance as a gay in Dishoom.
So, when we tell you that there is a video out of Akshay Kumar where he is directing a film, you need to get excited. In a typically Akshay Kumar fashion in what looks like a typically Akshay Kumar film, the actor seems to be taking a wide shot. He says in the video, “Is jhoomar se lekar yahan…” when he is shocked by something he sees.
While this could also be a shot from his forthcoming films or innumerable ad films but we would like to hope, till proven otherwise, that the man is ready to direct a film.
These were some of the fan reactions after watching the video: “His fans hope so too. #AkshayBanaDirector we are excited to see his film what will come next.” Another fan wrote, “Being a die-hard akki fan, this is best news for me. Hopr you all akkians are damn happy too. Looking 4ward 2 know more #Akshaybanadirector.” Here is another reaction: “Are you a fan of Akshay Kumar?? Then, get ready to see him in a new avatar #AkshayBanaDirector.”

Away from all of this, Akshay himself is holidaying with his family — wife Twinkle Khanna, son Aarav and daughter Nitara — in Maldives. On the work front, he is busy shooting for Jolly LLB 2.
