New Delhi: Akshay Kumar has found a fan in director Rituparno Ghosh who feels his acting skills go unnoticed and says he is the most underrated actor in Bollywood.

"I saw `Desi Boyz` yesterday and cannot help thinking that Akshay Kumar is one of the most underrated actors in Bollywood," Ghosh posted on Twitter.

"I dn`t think mch abt the film. But his performance in `Desi Boyz` is subtle, mature and worthy of acclaim - he deserves a wider range of roles," he wrote.

Ghosh, who has directed films like ‘Chokher Bali’ and ‘Raincoat’, feels that the 44-year-old might be known for flexible action and perfect comical timings, but there is more in him which is royally ignored.

"We have @akshaykumar slotted as an action hero or in a few comic roles but the fact that he is a fine actor goes unnoticed," he posted.

Akshay’s ‘Desi Boyz’ was released Friday and is doing well at the Box Office.
