Bollywood superstar Akshay Kumar, who has regaled the audience with his slapstick comedy, now wants to return to his action innings to cash on the recent success of such films before he grows older. He will soon be seen in Khiladi 786.
With films like Dabangg, Bodyguard, Singham and Force making hay at the box office, Akshay too wants to jump into the action bandwagon and churn out blockbusters.
Speaking to PTI about his plans to do action oriented films, Akshay Kumar said, “One of the reasons for me to do action films is spurt of these movies. Another reason is lot of time has passed and I have not done any action film. I did not do action films because my son was small..now he is 10-years of age. I am ready to get into it for another four-five years of action."
Akshay Kumar further added, “I am 44-45-year-old and in another five years I won't be able to do action so I want to play the last action innings."
Back in the 1990s when Akshay began his acting career, he starred in action films but took a sabbatical later on and did comedy, romance and drama. His feature films like Khiladi (1992), Main Khiladi Tu Anari (1993), Sabse Bada Khiladi (1995), Khiladiyon Ka Khiladi (1996), Mr and Mrs Khiladi (1997), International Khiladi (1999), Khiladi 420 (2000), earned him the nick name Khiladi. Now almost after a decade, the Khiladi is back in the same zone, with his upcoming film Khiladi 786, an action comedy starring Akshay, Paresh Rawal and Himesh Reshammiya.
"Its been 12 years I haven't done that kind of a film. The role that I got, suits me..I think it was written for me. I am happy to be doing action films again." The film is slated to release in Diwali 2012.
