Some reports suggest Akshay avoids being in town around the release of his films as he believes, they perform better at the box office if he is away.
"Honestly, I have never consciously run away from the premiers of my films over the years. People made their own assumptions and stated that I do it due to some superstition attached to my presence in the premiers of my own films. That's just not true", said Akshay.
However, absence on a continued basis around the release of his films couldn't be 'just a coincidence', right?
“Believe me, it is", defended Akshay, "Don't stress yourself to find any logic or the lack of it. This time I am here because I could make it to Mumbai. Simple."
On a cheerful note Akshay added, "It has been long since films worked at the box office and it is heartening to hear that New York has done quite well. It was such a long and dry spell of no-show at the box office and I am positive the current season will bring in smiles for everyone"
With the market too showing an upswing, Akshay is glad that people are back to entertainment. "I can promise that Kambakkht Ishq will give them the entertainment that they have been longing for", concluded Akshay.
