However, while Akshay changed his comedy genre, we know we missed him in those kinds of commercial films.

Well, it turns out there’s a chance Akshay might return to acting. But it depends on one condition.

According to director Chandraprakash Dwivedi, the actor told him he would go back to doing non-serious comedy films on one condition.

Talk to Navbharat timethe director revealed that Akshay once told him that he would return to making films like Housefull and Rowdy Rathore if YRF’s Prithviraj failed to create the magic on screen.

“If a film fails, the producers get discouraged. This is the first historical film made by Yash Raj Films. If it succeeds, they will do more. Otherwise, their organization regularly makes films. They will go back to doing what they were.

“I remember Akshay telling me personally and even in interviews that ‘I was doing Rowdy Rathore and Housefull. These films earn me more. I made an attempt (with Samrat Prithviraj). If people reject this then no worries, I’ll go back to Rowdy Rathore. People want to watch things that don’t have controversy. So that’s what I’ll do.” said Dwivedi.

Well, Samrat Prithviraj which also stars Manushi Chillar didn’t do too well at the box office.
