Those who have had a dekko at HOUSEFULL reveal that such unfortunate is the character played by Akshay in the film that he is termed as 'panauti' (a slang for being someone who brings in bad luck). One wonders if this trait remains consistent with the character throughout the film. Or just as it happens in most quintessential Hindi films, the character sees a turnaround for itself after a while and turns into a trademark Bollywood hero with everything going in his favour?
"Nope, there are no fairy tale endings here", Akshay sets the record straight, "Having said that, I have to say this that behind every man there is always a great woman. Even in the film, I spend my whole life looking for the woman that loves me for the duffer that I am and someone who can perhaps change my luck forever. Now whether I find her or lose her or even marry her is something that no one knows about that. Well, at least not yet!"

Coming back to the entire 'cool quotient' which is not attached to his character in the film, Akshay says that a lot of this has to do with what an individual is surrounded by rather than his own being.
"Let's look at it this way. If you take away my beautiful wife, my flashy cars, my designer clothes, especially my leather jacket and favourite Aviator sunglasses, I had simply been just another brick in the wall. We have all been there and no one was born cool, not even James. Errr, what was his name? Well yeah, I remember now - Bond'", signs off Akshay with a wink.
