Akshay Kumar’s speciality is his ability to be a man of many faces cloaking himself in a variety of appearances that give him almost a chameleon quality.
In his Dishoom cameo what was prominent was his manbun. The 48-year-old star shows up in a varied range of films this year and looks vastly different in each. His Dishoom Varun Dhawan co-star tweeted: “He’s crazy funny.”
Dishoom, which was released on Friday, also stars John Abraham and is directed by Varun’s brother Rohit Dhawan, who last made Desi Boyz with Akshay and John.
Akshay Kumar is also experimenting with his looks in Rustom, which releases on August 12, sporting a moustache in addition to a crew-cut hairstyle of a navy man. He plays naval officer Rustom Pavri in the film, which is inspired from the real life Nanavati case. Rustom also stars Ileana D’Cruz, Arjan Bajwa and Esha Gupta.
In Jolly LLB 2, Akshay plays a lawyer. He says this is the first film he plays the leading role as a lawyer. Dressed in a lawyer’s black-and-white clothes and a tika on his forehead, Akshay looks comical. The film is a sequel to Subhash Kapoor’s 2013 sleeper hit, Jolly LLB.
But it is his appearance in upcoming Tamil film 2.0, where he plays the antagonist opposite superstar Rajinikanth, which has been the most intriguing so far. This Birdman and mad scientist crossover did not please Akshay’s fans. Akshay plays the role of a scientist whose experiment backfires. – CINEWS
