Bollywood Khiladi Akshay Kumar's growth as an actor and repertoire of work has indeed stunned the film industry. Besides, Salman Khan, who has always appreciated Akshay's work, now his co-star of many films and buddy Suniel Shetty is all praise for him. With back-to-back patriotic films like HOLIDAY – A Soldier Is Never Off Duty, BABY and AIRLIFT, Suniel feels Akshay has developed a niche for himself and in fact it even suits his personality.
At a charity event, Suniel went gaga over Akshay. “I think Akshay is one actor who is very versatile. Whether it's BABY or AIRLIFT or HOLIDAY, Akshay has found a niche for himself because he looks like an officer and gentleman. There are very few actors in the industry who have a personality like this and who you can term as ‘fauji'. Looking at him you feel that he will do something for the country. He has a clean image, great personality and above all he is a brilliant actor.”
Since Suniel Shetty has also done patriotic films, specifically J P Dutta ones that gained him popularity, like BORDER, LOC KARGIL and REFUGEE, he is happy that patriotic films are being made.
“I have always believed that we should encourage patriotic films. Even if we get 10-12 J P Duttas, then it would be great. There is no one like him who has the courage to make patriotic films on a huge scale. Because others go by the book or rather just concentrate on the financials and calculate the profit or loss. So I am happy that such films are being made. If you see this year, good films have worked and not big films,” Suniel added.
Well, we too agree with you Suniel!
