Mumbai. Akshay Kumar’s upcoming film Boss recorded a steep fall in tickets sales at counters and booking websites as soon as rumors of it being an intelligent film started doing rounds on internet.
The advance booking window of the film opened yesterday and the booking was going at full swing until the tragedy struck.
It all began with an SMS that started doing rounds saying that Boss is Akshay Kumar’s first attempt at thought provoking cinema with a powerful script that touches your soul. The SMS spread like a wildfire and contents of it also got circulated on social media, resulting in reversal of fortunes for the movie.
The producers of Boss have termed it a conspiracy and a cheap attempt by some jealous people to improve malign Akshay’s image thereby affecting the outcome of the film.
“How can people even believe that this movie would make sense? Haven’t they seen the trailers of Boss and haven’t they heard how many lives the trailer alone has claimed so far? Or do they watch trailers also leaving their brains behind?” asked an angry distributor.
Apart from producers and distributors, Akshay Kumar fans are also unhappy.
“After Rowdy Rathore, Joker, and Khiladi 786, I had got my brains surgically removed so that I can enjoy Boss like a boss. Now I just don’t recall where I have kept it. How irresponsible and heartless of Akshay to disappoint his fans and come out with a smart film like this. Now how on earth am I supposed to enjoy it without brains,” said a fan who has switched over his allegiance to Salman Khan with the hope that he won’t disappoint.
Meanwhile Akshay Kumar is trying to pacify his fans and asking them to not believe in rumors of Boss being a wonderfully scripted film and assured them of it being even shittier than all his previous films clubbed together.
“Dimaag nahi, bas enjoy karo boss,” the actor reassured his fans.
To make sure the damage is minimum, Akshay Kumar has requested Rajeev Masand to watch Boss and review it and give it as poor rating as he can. As per sources, Akki has promised to take care of all medical expenses that would be required for Masand’s treatment thereafter.
He has further requested another critic Taran Adarsh to strictly stay away from reviewing this film lest he does some more damage by giving it 4 stars.
