Akshay Kumar, popularly known as the "Khiladi Kumar" of Bollywood, is often praised for his hard work and dedication towards work. He has also impressed other co-stars for being a thorough professional.

His latest release "Rowdy Rathore" has hit big time at the box office with record opening collections. The movie directed by Prabhu Deva has become the third biggest opening movie in Bollywood.

But Akshay's fans are waiting for his much-expected movie "Once upon a Time in Mumbai" sequel and his home production "Khiladi 786".

The sequel "Once Upon A Time In Mumbai Again" produced by Balaji Telefilms was scheduled to begin between March - April, but will now begin in August. While he is shooting for Milan Luthria's film, the actor is also required to shoot a song for "Khiladi 786."  Akki is planning to adjust Milan's dates to shoot for his home production. 

According to reports, Akki, who has a four-day break during the shooting of "Once Upon A Time in Mumbai Again," will use those dates to shoot the song for "Khiladi 786."  

Now, this is what you call as dedication and time management towards work!

The filming of "Khiladi 786" has already begun from June 2 at Kamalistan Studios, Mumbai. Akshay and heroine Asin finished the first schedule of the movie on June 18.

The movie was scheduled to release during Diwali this year, but Akki has decided to postpone the release date to avoid clashing with Ajay Devgn's "Son Of Sardar" and Shah Rukh Khan's Yash Chopra directed untitled project. The film is now scheduled to release on Dec. 7.

"Khiladi 786" is directed by Ashish R Mohan and is written and produced by Himesh Reshammiya.
