Akshay Kumar’S Airlift Unstoppable At The International Box Office

5 February 2016 2:30 AM, PST | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

Indian cinema megastar Akshay Kumar has once again enthralled audiences with his latest film ‘Airlift’, a tense drama based on the true life events during the Gulf War of 1990 which witnessed the world’s largest human evacuation in history. Released just before India’s 67th Republic Day, the film captures the sheer brilliance of the unspoken heroic mission of India which has become an ‘Airlift’ing experience.

Airlift opened to phenomenal reviews, word of mouth and box office takings in India, and has continued its winning streak in all major international box offices over the weekend, opening to record breaking numbers.

Touted as Akshay Kumar’s Performance Of A Lifetime, Airlift has become Akshay Kumar’s highest grossing first week ever, surpassing his previous hits such as Rowdy Rathore, Houseful 2, Gabbar, Special 26, Singh Is Bling, Baby and Brothers.

The international box office for Indian cinema has historically been dominated by family dramas, »

10 Greatest WWE World Title Storylines In WrestleMania History

26 January 2016 7:05 PM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

The chances of Roman Reigns winning the triple threat match at Fast Lane are so great, Vegas shouldn’t even lay odds for it. It’s Reigns vs. Triple H at WrestleMania 32 in At&T Stadium, and there’s virtually no chance that WWE gives us anything different. Commence two months of, “Geez, how predictable,” and, “I’ll bet Daniel Bryan gets cleared on Monday, April 4.”

Looking back at three decades of WrestleMania history, there have been far greater WWE Championship storyline builds than, “Vince’s son-in-law tries to shoot Vince’s pet project into the stratosphere before a potentially record-setting crowd.” Of course, such transparent vanity is still better than Sgt. Slaughter pledging allegiance to Saddam Hussein, providing a catalyst for Hulk Hogan to defend Old Glory in a championship showdown that fell embarrassingly short of selling out the Los Angeles Coliseum. Actually, that may be hard »

Akshay Kumar launches Proud to be Indian campaign for Airlift

14 January 2016 4:19 AM, PST | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

Ahead of the release of Airlift, International icon and humanitarian Akshay Kumar will now be seen in a heart-touching video message requesting fellow Indians to share their stories and moments that made them feel #Proudtobeanindian.

Akshay Kumar can be seen in the video sharing his thoughts on India, “Every day thousands of people help others, stand for the rights of people, and also die for the safety of others without caring about their life, wellbeing or greed. You can pick up history textbooks to see that the people of India have always cared. Like for example, Operation Madad of 2004 where thousands of people were airlifted out of Tsunami affected areas. Operation Sukoon of 2006 in Lebanon or Operation Raahat of 2015 where Indian Force rescued thousands of people in Yemen. I am proud of being an Indian. Yes I am an Indian and proud to be one. Share with me any such »

“I am really enjoying the full mix match of genres I am playing with right now” – Akshay Kumar on Airlift

11 January 2016 9:19 PM, PST | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

It all started with Baby in January 2015. Ever since then, Akshay Kumar has already scored three more releases in the form of Gabbar Is Back, Brothers and Singh Is Bliing. Now in a span of exactly 12 months, the man would have his fifth film hitting the screens – Airlift. While his contemporaries are churning out one or at maximum two films in one year, Akshay Kumar is pretty much setting a record of sorts with as many as five releases to his name.

Tirelessly moving ahead and stepping into films as diverse as Housefull 3, Robot 2 and Rustom, Akshay gets into a conversational mode.

Unlike Holiday, Baby or even Gabbar Is Back which required you to perform a lot of action, Airlift isn’t about the kicks and punches from you. How was it to be a part of some true drama?

It was actually nice to take a break »
