Akshay Kumar has a lot of films on his platter. He is often called the ATM of Bollywood because even when his movies weren't earning Rs 100 crore, they were covering the production costs and were also earning profits. He kept the industry floating even when movies of other biggies bit the dust. That's why he is the darling of the producers. One other aspect of why he is the favourite of the producers and the box office is that Akshay doesn't believe in shooting a movie for months. Most of the time they are start-to-finish schedules and he wraps them up quickly. This way producers also get to save their money on unnecessary dates. For a year, Akshay like everybody else stayed at home, he did just one thing - sign movies. Today, the actor has 9 upcoming movies in various stages of production.
