From OMG 2 to Hera Pheri 3, what is next for Akshay Kumar after the Selfiee fiasco?
Selfiee was Akshay Kumar's first film in 2023. The film was released in theatres on February 24 and received positive reviews. Despite favorable reviews from critics, the film has underperformed at the box office.
The underperformance of a mainstream release starring two bankable stars - Akshay Kumar and Emraan Hashmi - has surprised industry observers. Selfiee is the Hindi remake of Driving License, a 2019 Malayalam film.
So, after Sefliee, what's next for Akshay Kumar? It's not the end of the road for Khiladi Kumar, who has an interesting slate of films coming up in the coming months.
