Akshay plays shades of Ranjeet

Mumbai: Bollywood star Akshay Kumar says his character`s traits in ‘Housefull 2’ are inspired by the way veteran actor Ranjeet used to ogle at women in his earlier films.

"My character in the film is that of a guy who loves admiring women. He easily gets distracted by the presence of beautiful women. There are many men who do that…they forget the conversation and start ogling at women," Akshay told reporters.

"My character takes little inspiration from Ranjeet sir..like he used to be in his earlier films. It does not take from the negative shades of Ranjeet but the way he used to look at the women," he added.

‘Housefull 2’, directed by Sajid Khan, will release April 5.
