Akshay Kumar is a master (yes, we wrote master because we didn’t want to repeat ‘Khiladi’) at two things – action and comedy. While you have seen the actor performing some crazy yet slightly different action stunts is all his movies (BABY, GABBAR IS BACK and BROTHERS) that released this year, he is now geared up to make you laugh with his upcoming release SINGH IS BLIING. Not only are we excited, but even the star is elated to get back to doing comedy!

Ask Akshay how he feels returning to comedy after long time and he says, “I love it. It’s great to do comedy, and it’s very difficult too. But unfortunately, a comic hero doesn’t get his due in this industry, because we look down at it. Unless you do romance or tragedy, cry and scream, you don’t get the best actor award. If you’re making people laugh, they look at it as a buffoonery. I don’t know why, but it’s very sad.”

Sorry to hear that Akshay Kumar, but we definitely don’t look down at your comedy. In fact, we are always waiting for you to turn up on the big screen and make our funny bones tickle.
