2000 crore actor

February 20
22:44 2013

akshay-kumar-wegFans of Akshay Kumar on Twitter got the hash tag #Akshay2000crore to trend worldwide for two days, suggesting that actor has earned Rs 2000 crores in his lifetime in Hindi cinema.

Whether there is any truth behind this is not clear, but an emotional Akshay Kumar thanked his fans, whom he fondly referred to as ‘Akkians’ for starting and sustaining the thread for over 48 hours.

“Honestly blessed to have you all Akkians in my life. Special thanks to my fan clubs who support me so much selflessly time & again. Thank you for the #Akshay2000crore tag only possible coz of you all,” he tweeted.

The trend started on February 16 and was taken off only on February 18. It was one of the top trends in India. Akshay is riding on both the box office success and the critical acclaim of his latest film Special 26 that also starred Anupam Kher and Manoj Bajpayee.

The revered Rs 100 crore club – of actors whose movies hit the 100 crore mark at the box office – may soon be a thing of the past if Akshay’s news turns out to be true. Rs 2000 crore may just be the next achievable target by Bollywood stars.

Piffling benchmark

Meanwhile filmmaker Karan Johar, co-chairman of the FICCI Frames 2013, says the focus on the Rs.100 crore benchmark, is limiting the growth and content of Bollywood films at a time when the aim must be to mint Rs.1,000 crore from one film.

“Rs.100 crore is restricting the limits of our self. We must add one more zero the Rs.100 crore films and take it to the next level. Rs.100 crore is limiting the growth and content (of films). The possibilities are endless, and we must focus on Rs.1000 crore mark instead,” Karan said.

“In the next five years, we will be in a position… it might sound aspirational, but there is a possibility that we may have achieved all that,” added the filmmaker.
