I am not fit for Hollywood, admits desi boy Akshay Kumar
Mumbai: Heartthrob Akshay Kumar, who is undoubtedly one of the most talented actors in Bollywood, has proven himself to be a true desi dude! While a hoard of B-town bigwigs would never dare to miss a chance to act in a Hollywood project, Akki is just not interested to go to the West, despite being offered some pivotal roles in big international ventures.
Akshay, who is one of the highest paid actors of the Indian film industry, says that he doesn’t want to leave his Indian fans and go to Hollywood. "I am not fit for Hollywood. I am happy being here (Bollywood). I have a huge audience to entertain. I do get small and big offers but I say no," the actor told reporters.
The actor would soon be seen in `Khatta Meetha`, a political satire on the rampant corruption, narrated through the life of a struggling road construction contractor, Sachin Tichkule, played by Akshay.
When asked about his character in the movie, Akshay said, "I feel comfortable playing both action and comic roles. I can perform anything but comedy is the toughest as it is very difficult to make somebody laugh. But I enjoy doing something challenging. ‘Khatta Meetha’ is my best comedy film," revealed the actor.
Slated for release on July 23, `Khatta Meetha` is a remake of the 1989 hit Malayalam film, `Vellanakalude Nadu`, also directed by Priyadarshan.
