Akshay Kumar Feels Like He’s Living Every Actor’s Dream, Here’s Why
Akshay Kumar revealed that by working on films of all different genres, he’s living the dream that every actor has
Bollywood star Akshay Kumar is a force to be reckoned with. The actor started his career in 1991 with Shiva and went on to work in some of the biggest hits of Bollywood. Because of his knowledge of martial arts, Akshay managed to land offers in action films and in 1992, with Khiladi, the actor also started getting known in the industry from the film’s name. Throughout the span of his career, he also starred in many romantic movies and in recent times, has moved to comedy as well as biopics – sometimes being hailed as the king of biopics in Bollywood. Now, it may seem like it’s hard for the actor to switch between the genres but Akshay enjoys it.
In a recent interview, he revealed, “It’s every actor’s dream to live such a diverse life on the big screen. Comedy, romedy, action, drama, masala… I’m in role-play heaven. I’m more than blessed to do what I do, that’s what makes me give my best.” He added that while his films may have never entered the 300-crore club, he’s glad that he gets to employ many people and entertain the audience. “No matter how much I do, I still want to do more. Some see it as greedy; I see it as hungry to give whilst I still can.”
While Akshay is jack of all trades, he still feels that sometimes audiences feel he’s doing the same thing over and over again. “Whatever I do next, my last efforts are forgotten. When I do comedy, I’m called mindless; when I do action, I’m called repetitive; when I do patriotic films; I become a biopic meme. Basically, when I do anything, someone has something to say as if I’m not trying to be the ‘most diverse man’ in the industry at the moment.” But regardless, the star concluded that he would never stop doing comedies because he enjoys them the most. Akshay will be next seen in Housefull 4 which is all set to hit screens later next month.
