Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar on Wednesday attended the press meet of his upcoming gangster comedy Bachchhan Paandey in Mumbai.
Bachchhan Paandey is Akshay’s third movie to hit theatres put up the pandemic, and there’s no stopping the actor. During the press meet, Akshay stated that he has accomplished 5 movies to date and can start shoot for his subsequent movie after the release of Bachchhan Paandey, which is able to arrive in cinema halls on March 18.
Talking about taking pictures back-to-back movies, Akshay Kumar stated, “I choose to go to work in the morning and take a break on Sundays. If you continue to do work, then you easily have many films in the pipeline. Everyone was working during the pandemic including policemen, press photographers and others. Everyone has to earn money, so every opportunity they got, they were working. Same is the case with me.”
The actor additionally stated that he’s all the time stunned when folks ask him how he shoots so many movies in a 12 months.
He stated, “Today I have everything in life. I lead a good life. I can easily sit at home and not earn but what about others who want to work and earn money. I no longer work for money. I work because I am passionate about my craft. I will stop working the day I feel disinterested to go to shoot or the day I don’t feel like waking up in the morning to go to shoot.”
Akshay Kumar was then requested concerning the risk posed by south Indian movies to Bollywood within the Hindi belt.
Akshay stated, “But that isn’t the case. See how Gangubai Kathiawadi released and it is working. All kinds of films work, be it content cinema, massy cinema and if there is a combination of massy films with content, then it is like sone pe suhaga. So, all films are working.”
He added, “We should pray that everyone’s films work. The most important thing is that the auditorium remains packed like this. I’m not one of those who will sit down and think, ‘This is working. This isn’t’. I feel everything should work because it is important. The industry has suffered terribly in the last two and a half years because of the pandemic. Films of so many people are stuck and the interest is mounting. My own film Sooryavanshi was ready but could release only after one and a half years. So let’s not analyse too much. I hope that people go out and watch films. It is important for us.”
