100 plus films, over 20 years in the business, a consistent success rate, a stable position amongst the top superstars and the only one to be releasing three to four films at an average every year – No wonder, Akshay Kumar has chartered a unique path for himself where he is driving the show merrily. His ‘Baby’ stays on to be the only major grosser that Bollywood has seen this year and now he is ready to release his ‘Gabbar Is Back’ this Friday. In this exclusive conversation, the actor bares his heart about picking up the mantle against corruption and still ensuring that the entertainment quotient for audience stays on.
The film is releasing almost 100 days after Baby, which incidentally is the only major Bollywood success of the year. Guess you would be the one who would set the wheels in motion again for Bollywood?
Yeah that’s me, the insane one that releases two films before others have released their one. In fact I will have released three by August (Brothers). Haha, and I wonder why I get tired! Na, I’m kidding, I’d be lost without my hectic schedules, that’s what’s great about the way I plan things. There’s not a day that goes by where someone doesn’t need me. Eventually that’ll come to an end, but hopefully it will be when I’m good and ready and not before. Until then, I will keep the Bollywood wheel turning till I can’t turn it no more (winks).
