With DESI BOYZ being Akshay's only release in second half of 2011 (PATIALA HOUSE and THANK YOU had arrived earlier), one would have thought that this year is comparatively relaxed year for Akshay Kumar when compared to 2010 and 2009. However the fact is that it has been busier than ever for Akshay, what with him shooting as many as three films one after another-JOKER, HOUSEFULL 2 and ROWDY RATHORE- with plans to begin ONCE UPON A TIME IN MUMBAAI - 2 early next year.
'Yes, but this is a well deserved seven months breather for me and my audiences between THANK YOU and DESI BOYZ,' says Akshay, 'You would think I was taking it easy this year but between dubbing for TRANSFORMERS, hosting FEAR FACTOR, starting and finishing JOKER & DESI BOYZ, making HOUSEFULL 2, preparing for ROWDY RATHORE and finalizing scripts for OUATIM 2 as well as planning hopefully next year's blockbusters, there is a lot happening. You can tell that I have been a bit of a busy boy but then you can also see from my face and the enthusiasm as I speak that I am very excited about all my projects.'
With the kind of line up that he has ahead of him, seems like Akshay is really picking diverse genres for his forthcoming lot of films. Is that a result of a conscious call around playing the game differently?
'Every move you make when it comes to cinema, especially your own films, is always a conscious action,' Akshay doesn't beat around the bush here, 'If I were to make a lot of comedy films in a row, it's not because I have nothing else to do. It will be because of the way I feel the wind of cinema is blowing. Right now I feel DESI BOYZ is the perfect film for me to be releasing next. There is love, laughter, loveable lessons and not to mention me and John running around and posing again after our GARAM MASALA together. It was fun for us and it will certainly be fun for audience.'
