If one suspected that Akshay Kumar would be in a sombre mood post the failure of ACTION REPLAYY then well, that's not really the case. Marching ahead with the intense promotional campaign of TEES MAAR KHAN and ensuring that he puts his best foot forward to make it the most talked about film before the close of year, Akshay attributes his cheerful mood to the ongoing advice that he gives to his son Aarav.
"I always tell him that 'If you cry at trouble it grows double, if you learn to laugh at trouble it disappears like a bubble!'," philosophises Akshay who has also been seen in HOUSEFULL and KHATTA MEETHA earlier this year.
Still, given the fact that he was pining a lot of hope on ACTION REPLAYY, his much hyped Diwali release, was it actually so easy for him to simply shrug away the film's failure? Wasn't he actually mighty disappointed for a long time before he rose up again?
"No, I was fine actually," Akshay negates the insinuation here, "One must always remember that you can't fight destiny. You have to move on."
This is the reason why soon after the release of ACTION REPLAYY, Akshay was occupied with the shoot of DESI BOYZ, a film where he has John Abraham as a co-star and is being directed by first timer Rohit Dhawan.
"That's right," he smiles, "The minute I found out that ACTION REPLAYY was a flop, I was already on the sets of my DESI BOYZ. In fact I remember laughing with John about how badly both our movies had just done (John's JHOOTHA HI SAHI had released just a fortnight ago). I was exactly where I wanted to be i.e. in a studio trying to make the next one work. Well, that's the story of my life and I am happy with every moment of it."
