Akshay Kumar, the so-called khiladi of Bollywood, will soon be seen in ‘Sarafira’. The film is releasing in theaters on July 12. Akshay has joined hands with the director of South Cinema for this film. It is directed by Sudha Kongara, who also directed the original version of ‘Sarafira’ ‘Surarai Potru’. Surya was seen in the lead role in that film and the film proved to be a big hit at the box office.

Akshay Kumar has been working in Bollywood for the past 33 years. His first film was ‘Saugandh’, which was released in the year 1991. In his career spanning 3 decades, Akshay has worked many times with Bollywood as well as South directors. Her first film with southern directors was ‘Hera Pheri’, which was released in the year 2000. This film was directed by Priyadarshan. The film was average in terms of earnings, but people loved the film. After that Akshay has done five films with southern directors in the last 21 years. And it is a record that not a single film of his has flopped. List of all his movies, director names and collections can be seen below.

1. Hera Ferry (2000)- Priyadarshan

  • Budget- 7.5 crores
  • Earnings- 21.41 Crores (Avg.)

2. Garam Masala (2005) – Priyadarshan

  • Budget- 17 crores
  • Earnings- 54.65 crores (hit)

3. Bhul Bhulaiyya (2007) – Priyadarshan

  • Budget- 32 crores
  • Earnings- 82.83 Crores (Hit)

4. Rowdy Rathore (2012)- Prabhu Deva

  • Budget- 77 crores
  • Earnings- 198.47 Crore (Blockbuster)

5. Holiday (2014)- AR Murugadoss

  • Budget- 86 crores
  • Earnings- 176.42 crores (hit)

All the figures written here are taken from Box Office India. It can be seen here that whenever Akshay joined hands with a South director, the film became popular. In such a situation, if ‘Sarafira’ fails to show its magic, then Akshay’s record of giving hit films with South director for 21 years will be broken.

Even if we forget the record for a moment, the success of this film is very important for Akshay. Because, if we leave out ‘Ram Sethu’ (2022- Average) and ‘OMG 2’ (2023- Superhit), then after the year 2022 so far 6 of his films have turned out to be flops. Those are his flop films. ‘Bachchan Pandey’, ‘Emperor Prithviraj’, ‘Rakshabandhan’, ‘Selfie’, ‘Mission Raniganj’, ‘Bade Mian Chhote Mian’
