Akshay Kumar, whether you like his acting or disregard it, you got to appreciate his body of work. As Akshay gears up for the release of his upcoming film Mission Mangal, he is on a spree of busy interviews! He opened up and got candid about his bad acting in his old films.
In a recent interview with Hindustan Times, Akshay was asked about his acting in old films to which he hilarious replied, “Not furniture, when I watch my old films, I feel I was a full showroom. So, critics were very lenient towards me (laughs). As for feeling contentment, that feeling isn’t there yet. I believe that the day you feel content, your hunger will die and that will be end of you. Hunger is very important and it shouldn’t die at any cost”
In the same interview Akshay was also asked about featuring in the Forbes highest paid celeb list that included the likes of Scarlett Johansson, Katy Perry, Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga.
Akshay expressed his gratitude but said that money doesn’t come easy to anyone. To quote, “Surely, it feels good (smiles). But I just go through the headline and not the detailed copy [of such articles]. On a serious note, money does matter to me but only in a limited way. And I know it’s my hard-earned money. I work extremely hard for each and every penny. Money doesn’t come easily to you. I have put my sweat and blood for that. So, yes, it does matter to me”
On the work front, Akshay is busy promoting Mission Mangal which is releasing this Independence Day and is simultaneously shooting for Rohit Shetty’s Sooryavanshi opposite Katrina Kaif and Good News opposite Kareena Kapoor Khan, Kiara Advani and Diljit Dosanjh.
