Akki wants to get back into ‘action’ mode

Wednesday, November 30, 2011

Bollywood superstar Akshay Kumar, who has regaled the audience with his slapstick comedy, wants to now return to his 'action' innings to cash on the recent success of such films before he grows older.

With films like 'Dabangg', 'Bodyguard', 'Singham' and 'Force' making hay at the box office, Akshay too wants to jump into the action bandwagon and taste success again. "One of the reasons for me to do action films is spurt of these movies. Another reason is lot of time has passed and I have not done any action film. I did not do action films because my son was small. Now, he is a 10-year-old. I am ready to get into it for another four-five years of action," Akshay told PTI in an interview. "I am 44-45-year-old and in another five years I won't be able to do action so I want to play the last action innings," he said.

 Back in the 1990s when Akshay began his acting career, he starred in action films but took a sabbatical later on and did comedy, romance and drama. Now, almost after a decade, the Khiladi is back in the same zone, with his upcoming film 'Khiladi 786', an action comedy starring Akshay, Paresh Rawal and Himesh Reshammiya.
"It’s been 12 years I haven't done that kind of a film. The role that I got suits me. I think it was written for me. I am happy to be doing action films again," Akshay said. The film is slated to release in Diwali 2012.

"There were lots of rumours that I am doing a cameo role, I have taken Rs.20 crore cheque... My own home production is making it so how can I charge so much money. I am playing the title role. Its an action-comedy film, I loved the subject and Himesh is a part of it," the 44-year-old actor revealed. His next action film is Prabhu Deva-directed 'Rowdy Rathore' starring Sonakshi Sinha and will hit the theatres in June 2012.

He would also be seen in the sequel of Milan Luthria's crime drama film 'Once Upon a Time in Mumbaai', which would release in August 2012. The film will star Akshay in the lead. Reportedly, the film will focus on rivalry of Chhota Rajan and Dawood Ibrahim.

Films in which Akshay played 'Khiladi'...
'Khiladi' (1992), 'Main Khiladi Tu Anari' (1993), 'Sabse Bada Khiladi' (1995), 'Khiladiyon Ka Khiladi' (1996), 'Mr and Mrs Khiladi' (1997), 'International Khiladi' (1999) and 'Khiladi 420' (2000)
