Surprising and exciting his fans with his recent decision to speak, "Only or at least mostly in Hindi," Bollywood star Akshay Kumar has decided to proudly wear his desi avatar on his sleeve.

Confirms Akshay, "I'm proud to be Desi. I'm a desi boy from Delhi and I'm very proud of who I am and I am proud of my roots. My fans love me for being desi, being humble, being hard working. They love me for speaking to them in their language; they connect with me because I remind them of their roots. So as a rule, I've decided to be myself."

The actor also has no qualms in admitting that 'Hindi' as a language is something he is more comfortable conversing in. Says Akshay, "After all, we're Hindi film stars. We earn our bread and butter from Bollywood... I'm uncomfortable talking in English. I've always been! I've realized my fans love the dialogues I say on screen. And those are in Hindi. Why speak in a language your are not comfortable in? After all success is about being comfortable in your own skin and I'm finally doing that." 

Akshay Kumar will next be seen doing what he does best in Eros International's DESI BOYZ alongside John Abraham. Also starring Chitrangada Singh and Deepika Padukone, DESI BOYZ comes to a theatre near you 25th November, 2011.
