Akshay Kumar is dependent on Katrina Kaif.

Akshay Kumar is dependent on Katrina Kaif.

Till last year the viewers of bollywood films thought Akshay Kumar’s sheer brilliance had helped the films to be super hits. He had given highest income tax in the last few years. His hit films more than Shahrukh Khan and Salman Khan made him uncrowned monarch of bollywood films.

But after the failure of both of the films released this year, including Chandni Chowk to China and 8*10 Tasveer, the viewers had realized that it was the charishma of Katrina Kaif more than Akshay Kumar which pulled his films. In the films released this year, Deepika Padukone and Ayesha Takia acted opposite Akshay Kumar. Their box-office popularity was not same as Katrina Kaif and that had made a huge difference.

In the last 5 years most the successful films of Akshay Kumar had Katrina Kaif in them. The combination entertained the viewers in the film Humko Dewaane Kar Gaye, and amazed them in the film Namaste London. Katrina played the role of an Indian girl who was born and brought up in London. She was the daughter of Rishi Kapoor who married her to Akshay Kumar, an Indian staying in a village of Punjab. The marriage was solemnized in India but after Katrina reached London she disregarded the marriage. Akshay convinced her throughout the film and ultimately she agreed to return to India with Akshay Kumar. The story was unique and the performances of all the actors were extraordinary.

The films Welcome and Singh is Kinng, also became super hit. The songs of those films including “welcome”, “inshah allah”, “teri ore teri ore” became as popular as the films. Akshay Kumar overtook Shahrukh Khan to become the most popular actor of 2008. But what the viewers had not realized that Katrina Kaif was the main factor behind the success of the films.

During the last few years all the films of Katrina Kaif excepting Yuvvraaj ended up being blockbusters. The films Race, Partner, Maine Pyar Kyun Kiya, all were super hit. Whether Salman Khan or Govinda or Akshay Khanna acted opposite Katrina Kaif it did not make any difference. Whether the films were suspense thrillers or comedy films it did not matter. What mattered was the screen presence of Katrina Kaif.

Akshay Kumar will again act with Katrina in the film De Dana Dan this year. The viewers know these days that Katrina Kaif is the readymade answer for sheer success in bollywood films. Akshay Kumar has a tough test in films where Katrina Kaif is not going to act opposite him.

i think the authors views are biased..
if akki is dependent on kat.then why hey baby and bhoolbhulaiya were super hits..
it is same as saying that once upon a time srk was dependent on kajol, and amitji was dependent on rekha, because both the above pairs were hit, and they delivered great hits at box office..
akki is a superstar..and few years back no body even knew katrina..it is akki who has made katrina a superstar..what works for both of them is that both are extremely good looking people, share a great chemistry and compliment each other well.. thats why people love to see them together..

The recent statistics show the popularity scale.
Akshay Kumar was an action whose action films like Mohra, Mai Khiladi Tu Anari, did well in box-office. His romantic image has been enhanced from the time he started acting with Katrina.

The two films released in 2009, like 8*10 Tasveer and Chandni Chowk To China bounced due to absence of Katrina Kaif.

Katrina Kaif's glamour did work in most of the successful films in the last two years. So Akki requires Katrina more than Katrina requires Akki.
