Akshay Kumar’s eagerly awaited ‘BOSS’ is all set for a Dussehra release on 16th October, 2013. After the mediocre performance of his ‘Once Upon Ay Time In Mumbai Dobara’, he will be heavily banking on this project. Director Anthony D’Souza too will be hoping to get a hit under his belt as the promos look promising. Here are a few unknown facts about the director of ‘BOSS’…
- • Anthony D’Souza’s ‘BOSS’ is apparently a remake of the Malayalam hit movie ‘Pokkiri Raja’ (2010) starring Mammotty, Prithviraj and Shriya Saran.
- • Anthony D’Souza had earlier written and directed ‘Blue’ in 2009 with Akshay Kumar, Sanjay Dutt, Zayed Khan, Lara Dutta and Katrina Kaif, which received a lukewarm response from the audience.
- • Besides ‘Blue’ and ‘Boss’ he has also directed ‘Ishaan’, ‘Bond’ and ‘Chaand’ which are stuck and yet to find takers for it.
- • He was once assistant and publicity PRO for Nagesh Kukunoor’s ‘Dor’.
- • He played a small role in Mansoor Khan’s Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar (1992).
