Has Akshay lost it?

Last updated on: January 19, 2009 15:44 IST

Chandni Chowk to China was supposed to start Akshay Kumar's success run this year. It had all the ingredients of a hit film -- cool kung fu action, Bollywood masala, the flavour of the season Deepika Padukone, the backing of Hollywood studio Warner Bros, and of course, a bankable star in Akshay.

But all it really did was get bad reviews and a poor box office response.

In fact, people hated the film so much that Shekhar Suman wanted a refund on his ticket money. 'Indian cinema should declare January 16 (the day CC2C released) as a mourning day because it is the day cinema died,' he told Mumbai tabloid Mid-Day.


we don't know why Shekhar Suman made such a statement. Some insiders say that Suman was afraid that CC2C would eat into the business of his son Adhyayan's new film, Raaz: The Mystery Continues, releasing this week.


we can't help but wonder whether Akshay will ever be able to challenge the supremacy of the Khans.

So here's our question to you:

Do you think Akshay will ever really challenge the Khans? Do you feel that there is a systematic sabotage plan going around to run Akshay down?
