Mumbai: Least perturbed with the lukewarm response of his last film ‘Tees Maar Khan’ at the BO, Bollywood khiladi Akshay Kumar is looking forward to working with the choreographer turned filmmaker Farah Khan once again. The actor moreover is of the opinion that he does not expect his films to win National awards.

Expressing his desire to team up with Farah Khan once again, Akshay said to reporters, “I`m looking forward to working with her again. She`s a tough taskmaster. Men are scared of her. So am I. She speaks her mind no matter what the consequences. She wasn`t making a film to win the National award. She made a commercial film.”

Akshay is now quite defensive when it comes to talking about the poor show of his over hyped film TMK. Defending his last outing, the actor said that he does commercial masala flicks to entertain audiences.

Talking about TMK, the actor said, "No matter what people say, the fact is that our film had the biggest opening of the year, along with ‘Dabangg’ and ‘Golmaal 3’. Audiences go to a Farah Khan film to see Manmohan Desai-type masala entertainment. I was doing what Austin Powers does in the Hollywood slapstick comedies."

Though Akki wishes to work with Farah Khan despite TMK proving to be a dud at the BO, whether or not the director joins hands with the star is still a matter of speculation.

Here’s hoping Farah does not do the same to Akshay what she did to her ‘once best friend’ Shah Rukh Khan.
