Mumbai: Actor-producer Akshay Kumar, who will be seen in A.R. Murugadoss`s next film `Holiday`, says the film is based on sleeper cells and he is excited about the project.

"I am doing `Holiday` with Murugadoss. I would like to do all kinds of films like `Special 26` and `OMG: Oh My God!`. It`s just that whatever you like, you go ahead and do it," he said.

"My next film `Holiday` is based on something very different...I am so excited about this film, but I can`t open up right now. It`s about sleeper cells which you guys have never heard of," Akshay told reporters here in a group interview.

`Holiday`, which also stars Sonakshi Sinha, is a remake of 2012 Tamil superhit film `Thuppakki` which featured Vijay and Kajal Aggarwal.

Akshay says he wants to do more of character-driven roles.

"I would love to do character-driven role, but people are more focused on commercial cinema. These kind of films don`t come quickly. But such roles have to come to me. I am looking forward to it," said the `Housefull` star, who is currently busy promoting his film `Boss` directed by Anthony D`Souza.
