Akshay surprised at films taking 300-400 days to complete
Mumbai– Superstar Akshay Kumar feels that a film should be completed in 30-60 days, and is surprised with filmmakers taking 300-400 days for the purpose.
At the trailer launch of his upcoming comedy “Housefull 3”, Akshay, asked how he manages to regularly do 3-4 films a year, said: “It is not rocket science, it is very easy, you just keep on working. I don’t think one film should take more than 60 days. I finished ‘Housefull 3’ in 38 days.
“Everyone comes on time, we work hard. I work for eight hours and it was very fast. I had read that they made the film, ‘Mission Impossible’ in 52 days. I don’t know how we talk about 300 days and 400 days. Films are completed in 30-60 days, maximum you take 70 days, how much shooting will you do?”
Akshay had four releases last year, and “Housefull 3” will be his second release of the year after “Airlift”. He will have another film, “Rustom” releasing this year.
Akshay added: “My shooting days were 38 days, but it took 40 days to make the trailer because they (makers) couldn’t understand how to show in two and half minutes everything about it’s storyline. It was very difficult for them, I remember so many times they showed us, but nothing was working out.”
“Housefull 3” has been directed by Farhad-Sajid, who have replaced Sajid Khan.
