I have no qualms in doing comedies, says Akshay Kumar

New Delhi: His last few films failed to create magic at the box-office but Bollywood star Akshay Kumar, who is returning with `Tees Maar Khan`, is unfazed with comic roles becoming his staple diet and restricting his versatility.

"I don`t think I have lowered down my experimentation level as I am only doing what the audience wants. Audience today only want full entertainment which can be provided only through comedy," Akshay, who was in the city for an Airtel event, told reporters.

Akshay, who grappled to tickle the funny bone of the audience in `Khatta Meetha` and `Action Replayy` is quite confident that `Tees Maar Khan` in which he essays the role of `half` Robinhood will click with the audience.

Speaking about his character, the 43-year-old actor said, "The film is well-executed. My role is of a clever con man who alone loots 10,000 kg items in a running train and as we all know stealing is very much prevelant in our society."

Meanwhile, choreographer-turned director Farah Khan has vouched her latest film to be a complete potboiler of different genres like her earlier films and is elated that `Mr Perfectionist` Aamir Khan has left the Christmas slot empty for TMK to release.

"Aamir is my Santa and I am very grateful for the Christmas gift which he has given me this year as he is releasing his much talked film `Dhobi Ghaat` on January 19 next year and not this year."

With TMK touted as the blockbuster for 2010, the film is only growing hotter each day with item song `Sheila Ki Jawaani` already a rage among the audience.

"Sheila is a character which will always remain close to my heart as compared to my earlier roles," said Katrina, who shed her good-girl image to do the raunchy number. TMK is slated for Christmas release on December 24.
