Boney Kapoor takes a jibe at Akshay Kumar?

Filmmaker Boney Kapoor recently made an appearance on 'The Kapil Sharma Show' alongside her daughter Janhvi Kapoor to promote their film 'Mili'. During the show, the filmmaker slammed actors who don't like committing themselves to a film and only wish to work for 25 days in return for a full paycheck. Although he didn't name anyone, Boney's comment was most likely a dig at actor Akshay Kumar who is infamous for wrapping up his films in one month or so which usually compromises the quality of his performance and the film overall.

He stated, "These days, there are some heroes who select films in which they have to work for only 25 days, but get paid their full quote. The intention right from the beginning is wrong. I don’t want to name the actors, but there are quite a few actors… They weigh projects on the basis of how many days they’ll have to commit.”

Talking about how this affects the quality of filmmaking, Boney added, "Their entire set up is based on convenience. The heroine must be available, the director must be available. How will the film turn out any good? From the first moment, the thought process is dishonest. Until the time people aren’t honest, regardless of whether they’re an actor or a director or a producer, movies will not work.”

As the clip went viral on reddit, several netizens supported Boney's statement. One of them wrote, “I think he’s right about actors, most likely referring to Akki here, who are just spitting out meaningless movies several times a year. I’m like 15 Akki movies behind but don’t think I’m missing anything."
