“Thought of doing multiple films in a short span of time is absolutely fulfilling” – Akshay

Akshay Kumar

In a matter of 10 months, Akshay Kumar would be seeing his sixth film (Special Chabbis (26)) releasing in theatres. For any current superstar in the industry, this is a huge record by all margins. However the man is not slowing down. On the contrary, he is looking at surpassing this record as well and score even higher in months to come.

You have made quite a few appearances during last 10 odd months. Starting from ‘Housefull 2? last year, ‘Special 26? would be your sixth straight release over the months. You seem to be on a records spree, isn’t it?
I know (smiles)! One would think that I was given some ‘Do or Die’ news or something like that where I have to fit a decade of living into two years. Actually though, I just think I have an addiction! Most men of my age take up casual drinking or gambling, or buy a ‘Top of the range’ sports car. As for me, I just can’t get enough of my work.

That indeed is the case. What else explains the fact that you have at least three (Special 26, Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai 2, Boss), if not four more movies (including ‘Thuppakki’ remake) lined up this year?
See, most people who go home and think about their work are restless. I go home so that I can eat, sleep, dream, talk, walk, train and crave for my work; all of that and more so that I can go back to all of it in the morning. I love what I do and the thought of doing multiple films in a short span of time is absolutely fulfilling.

Guess you are not looking at slowing down at all.
Not for now anyways. Reason being that it’s still not enough. There are so many ideas and so many great people who want to make films. I wish I had time to do them all and give everyone an opportunity (winks).

Well, you seem to have done that with Neeraj Pandey. By the look of things, it is apparent that Neeraj has brought the storyteller aspect of him out once again and that too in a major commercial set up.
This is by far ‘not’ a major commercial set up. In fact if it was ‘that’ commercial the how could it be ‘that’ different from the other movies I make? ‘Special 26? is a one of a kind set up. The dry humour is classically entertaining but not all people across India will be able to enjoy it to the maximum for it’s not their kind of ‘funny’. The cerebral action is something that I have never really committed to as I am more of a raw action kinda guy; so that’s a refreshing touch for all. The fact that it’s a periodic film based on a real life story automatically stops it from being commercial and it instantly becomes an ‘Epic Drama’!

    Secondly..Why he is SuperStar like never before bcoz Bollywood call him “Mini Industry”..Without Akshay Bollywood is incomplete..and why he is SuperStar of the Millennium bcoz have gives 4 hits in one year 2time..and he is the only one SuperStar standing in front of 3 Khans..giving then tough time..in every way of Bollywood force..

    Haha Waseem…..you are Danish’s equivalent….i agree with you that Akshay is a mini industry. Not many know that the producer profit of Tashan went into making Ek Tha Tiger.
