Akshay Kumar Sarfira

Akshay Kumar’s recent track record is bleak, with 9 out of his last 10 films being outright disasters. Currently, he faces the lowest point of his career, evident from films like Selfiee and Mission Ranigunj opening to embarrassing box office figures of around Rs. 2 crore.

The post-Covid era has hit him hard, a stark contrast to his earlier streak of hits until 2019.

His last film, Bade Miyan Chote Miyan, suffered monumental losses amounting to 250 crores, marking his biggest disaster yet.

Akshay has swiftly moved on to Sarfira, a remake of Suriya’s OTT hit Soorarai Pottru, whose trailer was released yesterday.

However, choosing to remake an OTT film has raised severe backlash. Even his loyal fan base isn’t interested in this film and sees it as a risky and possibly disastrous move.

Despite recent failures with remakes like Selfiee and Bachchan Paandey, Akshay Kumar appears unfazed and continues to repeat his mistakes.

Scheduled for release on July 12, the film’s not-so-eagerly-awaited trailer released yesterday suggests Akshay Kumar’s character will face numerous challenges in his quest to make affordable air travel a reality for every Indian.

Akshay’s performance also seems to be nowhere compared to Suriya’s spirited performance in the original. Radhika Madan is no match for Aparna Balamurali in the original who had sizzling chemistry with Suriya.

Directed by Sudha Kongara, the film revolves around a commoner’s dream to revolutionize aviation in India.
