Exclusive: The REAL reason why Akshay Kumar is not doing the Verghese Kurien biopic
It seems Akshay Kumar has had enough of bio-pics for the moment. After R Balkis Pad Man and Reema Kagti s Gold , in both of which he plays ennobled real-life characters; Akshay will take a break from this genre of movies. He has just turned down a film based on the life of Verghese Kurien, the man who initiated the largest dairy development organisation in the world. A source in the know informs, The films producer Ekta Kapoor and director Shree Narayan Singh presumed Akshay would say yes to this project because he has always shared a cordial relation with Ekta, has worked well with Shree Narayan in Toilet: Ek Prem Katha and likes the idea of playing noble inspiring real-life characters. So why did Akshay Kumar say no to this bio-pic? Because Shyam Benegal has already made a classic: Manthan on Kuriens milk revolution. Akshay feels there is nothing more he can add to the bio pic, says the source. A wise decision indeed. We now hear Ekta Kapoor and Shree Narayans second choice is Ajay Devgn.Also Read: Akshay Kumar joins hands with the government for road safety
