In 2016, Akshay Kumar enjoyed a successful run at the box office when each of his films was received well by the critics and audience. Even his films in 2019 were considered to be at their peak. The actor delivered four films out of which two hit revenue of Rs 200 crore, and the others earned around Rs 150 crore. But 2020 changed everything for him. Post-COVID-19, the actor’s films started to see flops and debacles as they failed to bring footfall. These films include Laxmi, Bachchan Paandey, Samrat Prithiviraj, Rakshan Bandhan, Selfiee, Ram Setu and Mission Raniganj.

Mission Raniganj failed to impress the box office as it merely crossed Rs 20 crore in the first week. Speaking with Times Now Navbharat, Akhsay said that the film was not commercial and has not earned as much as it should have. “But I have come here knowing that the film has not done well, to own the film- and I have done some 150 films by now say that this is one of my best films,” he added.

Now, the Airlift actor is rooting for success through his Marathi debut with Vedat Marathe Veer Daudale Saat. In the period drama film directed by Mahesh Manjrekar, Akshay will be essaying the role of Maratha ruler Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj. The team is expecting huge numbers from the film in Maharashtra.

The film also has postponed its release date from Diwali 2023 as well. According to Bollywood Hungama, Vedat Marathe Veer Daudale Saat was clashing with Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif starrer Tiger 3. The new release date is expected to be released soon.

Vedat Marathe Veer Daudale Saat is based on the story of seven brave warriors who had the sole aim of bringing Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj’s dream of Swarajya to reality.

Akshay however, saw a box office success with Sooryavanshi which was released in 2020. The cop drama directed by Rohit Shetty was scheduled to hit before the lockdown and was released the following year. The film earned Rs 233 crore worldwide. OMG 2 is another film released on August 11 that turned out to hit film despite being released alongside Jailer and Gadar 2. The film earned Rs 220.49 crore globally.
