‘I DON’T FIND DIFFICULTY’… … Says actor Akshay Kumar on doing four-five movies year!.

Bollywood’s Khiladi Akshay Kumar is one actor who doesn’t believe in following the B-town trend of doing one-film-a-year, it seems! In an interview when the actor was asked about how he manages his time working on four-five films a year, Akshay revealed that he does not find it difficult and yet can easily find time for family.

“I have been doing this since 24 years; I don’t think why I should stop it. I don’t find difficulty. I work eight hours a day. I take maximum holidays in film industry and manage to do three-four films a year and release it,” Akshay said. He further added, “A lot of time I have been asked about gap between my films. A film takes approximately 60 days, then for four films it takes 240 days. There are 365 days in a year so there are remaining 125 days to holiday.”

It’s noted that this year, so far, Akshay had two releases – HOLIDAY and ENTERTAINMENT— while his film SHAUKEEN will be releasing in November. And his kitty for the next year is full too with films like GABBAR, BABY, SINGH IS BLING, BROTHERS and AIRLIFT.

What’s more, despite doing multiple projects at a time the 46-year-old actor says that he consciously tries to work in different kind of movies. Talking about films, he said, “I love to juggle between various genres. I love the fact that I can do all the genres and it makes me very happy that people accept me in films like OH MY GOD, SPECIAL 26, HOLIDAY and ENTERTAINMENT.

“It is not necessary to keep switching to various genres to survive in the industry as there are actors who are working on one or two genres and are surviving in the industry. I think it is a personal choice… When I joined film industry, I started with action films, but then after sometime I was bored seeing myself doing the same stuff. When I am bored then others will also get bored. So I switched to romance, comedy and did negative roles. I try to do different stuff to entertain people,” he added. So far, Akshay’s last two films – HOLIDAY and ENTERTAINMENT – have managed to get good response both from the critics and audience at the box office.
