To say that Akshay Kumar is the master of all trades would be nothing but stating the obvious because from acting, singing to doing his own stunts, there is a reason why Akshay Kumar is tagged as the Khiladi of Bollywood. As we all know, Akshay Kumar had lent his voices in films such as Singh Is Kinng, Special 26, and It’s Entertainment, and in the latest, it is being reported that Akshay Kumar will turn rapper for the fourth installment of Housefull. That’s right!
According to a report, Farhad Samji, who directed Akshay in It’s Entertainment was the one to convince Akshay to sing a song in the 2014 film, and since Farhad Samji is directed Housefull 4, he came up with the idea to allow Akshay to rap in the film because this is something that Akshay has never done before. “Farhad Samji, who was one of the directors of It’s Entertainment, had convinced Akshay to croon the title track of the comedy. This time too, it was his idea that Akki explores his rapping skills. While producer Sajid Nadiadwala jumped at the idea, the producer-director due then convinced their leading man to give his nod. The Tanishk Bagchi composition us yet to be recorded. The makers are yet to decide if it should be a solo track or one that sees him croon alongside Mika Singh,” as quoted by Mid-Day. Well, after seeing Ranveer Singh rap in Gully Boy, we are sure that Akshay Kumar is going to give tough competition to Ranveer.
In the film, Bobby Deol and Riteish Deshmukh will be seen as Akshay’s partners-in-crime, the promotional track will be shot solely on Akshay. Currently, Akshay Kumar is shooting for Rohit Shetty’s Sooryavanshi opposite Katrina Kaif.
