If one looks at the list of films that Akshay Kumar has done over last 5-6 years, it is clear that he has seen the maximum number of releases that any star from the top bracket has done in recent times. Of course this means that he has seen an occasional disappointment or two at the box office as well but still the sum total of revenue generated by his movies have time and again led to astronomical figures.

However, once he is through with his present lot of films (ACTION REPLAY, HOUSEFULL, PATIALA HOUSE), Akshay Kumar would be looking at a change in game plan. Come 2011 and he would be seen in two or at maximum three films a year.

For an actor who has always prided in finishing his films on time and hence packing in a lot more in the 365 days available, a radical shift like this comes across as quite surprising.

"I would still be working only with those production houses that can wrap up a film in those 50-60 days at maximum. Still, in the spare time now, I would want to do a lot of other things that just face the camera for my films. I have been working non-stop for so many years now. Even though I was taking my yearly holidays with my family, I want to be spending more time with them", says Akshay Kumar who would be seen in BLUE and DE DANA DHAN in next few weeks.

"I have already wrapped up ACTION REPLAY while HOUSEFULL is also more than 90% complete. After that I head straight into Nikhil Advani's PATIALA HOUSE with Anushka Sharma (RAB NE BANA DI JODI). I am yet to sign any other film though in 2010, my earlier film HELLO INDIA [earlier titled PURAB KI LAILA PASCHIM KA CHAILA] will release too. I am happy for director Shabnam Kapoor as well as Namrata Shirodkar. It was meant to be her debut movie more than a decade back", smiles Akshay.
