The B-Town is looking forward to four big releases in the month of August. Everyone is expecting some competition between these movies, but Akshay Kumar says that films are not made to outdo anyone in the industry.


The actor's upcoming film Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai Dobara will hit the theatres on August 15. "We don't make films for a reason like 'I would outdo someone or their films'. We don't make films to cut each other's work. We are all in one industry, don't divide us. We all make our films with hard work and love and want people to enjoy it," said Akshay at the promotional event of his film.


Akshay, who plays an underworld don in the film says, "I focus on my work, what I want to do in my film. I don't believe in competition or the number game."


When asked if he wants to be remembered as a villain, the actor says it depends on how the audiences receive it after its release. He said, "About me being remembered as a villain, I don't know if that will happen or not as the film is yet to release, how much the film or my role will be liked or not is yet to be known."


"But yes, I was absolutely sure about the role I want to play. I loved the role. I think all girls prefer bad boys," he added with a smile.
