Akshay Kumar has been the hero of Bollywood for nearly 30 years. In the meantime, he chooses real-life stories and entertains the audience along with the message. However, in his five-year career, he never appeared in any Hollywood Film.
Akshay Kumar was asked the same question in a recent interview. To which he replied, "I cannot lie that I have not had a chance in Hollywood. But the offers that came to me were not big movies, and not interesting. I am very happy with Bollywood movies. If a good script comes to me, it will help me to show my talent. It seems great that our films are gaining popularity around the world. Content films are spread across all countries, regardless of language. My guess is that the Indian film industry scripts, Hollywood is not as good as we are inventing the story on screen," he said.

Actress Vidya Balan plays the officer in the team of scientists. Taapsee, Nithya Menon, Sonakshi Sinha, Sharman Joshi and Keerthi Kulhari will be seen in key roles. Jagan Shakti is the director.
