Bollywood's 'Khiladi' Akshay Kumar has switched to work mood and started shooting for Sanjay Leela Bhansali's upcoming film Gabbar in Goa.

According to reports, Akshay Kumar has been holidaying with his family in the coastal state since his actress wife Twinkle Khanna's birthday on December 29.

Akshay needs all the luck he can have as 2013 did not turn out to be as fruitful as the actor had expected. Last year, two out of his three films bombed at the Box Office. While 'Special 26' did moderately well, 'Once Upon A Time In Mumbai Dobaara' and 'Boss' were outright disasters.

The film is expected to release worldwide on December 25 this year. 'Gabbar' is an official remake of the 2002 critically and commercially successful Tamil A. R. Murugadoss film Ramana, starring Vijaykanth in the lead.
