Bollywood superstar Akshay Kumar was lately in the limelight, as there was a buzz among everyone that the 49-year-old actor would be depicting five characters in Omang Kumar’s next flick Five, as well as star in Naam Shabana which is a prequel to the movie Baby. All the Akshay Kumar fans beamed with joy on hearing the news. However, as per reports both the unofficial declarations are stated to be rumours now.
A source close to bollywoodhungama.com has told them that both the news are rumours, as he/she stated that Akshay would not be starring as the lead character in Naam Shabana. And neither can he be witnessed portraying a special appearance in the film. Akshay is already busy with 4 to 5 movies where he portrays the lead character. And Akshay is the producer of the film so his portrayal of a character is not required.
The source further added that the viewers might expect Akshay to make an appearance in Naam Shabana, so he might be witnessed appearing as a cameo character in the movie directed by Shivam Nair. And apart from that the storyline of the film revolves around the character depicted by Taapasee Pannu.
The unofficial declaration of Akshay playing five characters in the movie Five made all his fans go gaga over the news. Their curiosity buds got tickled as a release date of the film was also declared (January 26, 2018). However, even this report is stated to be a rumour.
The source close to bollywoodlife.com went ahead to state that nothing of that sort has been decided yet and mentioned the rumours as premature reports. Right now Akshay has four movies in his kitty such as Jolly LLB 2.0, Robot 2.0, Toilet – Ek Prem Katha and Crack and there will be an official announcement of his other films soon.
