Hindi film industry is slowly and gradually getting obsessed with biopics. MS Dhoni, Milkha Singh and now Sanju have proved that biopics can create a lot of moolah at the box office. Though everyone is in favour of making biopics on an actor’s life as those stories are mass-appealing, Akshay Kumar seems to differ with the mass-opinion.
Recently Sanjay Dutt’s biopic did wonders at the box office and Akshay was seen commenting: "I would never ever make a biopic on myself and I will never write a book on myself. There are so many amazing stories in history, like Tapan Das (his character in 'Gold'), Arunachalam Muruganantham on whose life "Padman" was based, who have steered India in a positive direction. I would be a fool to make a biopic on myself. I would never even think of it, it will be a shallow thing to do for myself. I want to make biopic on real heroes and not reel heroes."
Asked if the industry is going overboard with biopics, Akshay said, "It is a known (fact) in our industry that if something works, almost everyone does the same thing and this is not just about biopic or sports biopic or something else. If a few films fail, everyone will run after something else."
Looks like someone clearly did not like the whitewashing act by Hirani. *winks*
Akshay’s Gold releases this Independence Day, Next, he will be seen in Kesari and Housefull 4.
