Mumbai: Popular TV actor Ronit Roy, who will be seen playing a villain in `Boss`, says it is difficult to match upto Bollywood star Akshay Kumar when it comes to action.
Ronit recently shot his toughest action sequence for the film, which is expected to have some daredevil stunts.
"Akshay is the king of action. It is difficult to match upto him in action and his level. I have broken my bones... Hands were swollen. I gave everything for this role hope it stands out in the space of villains," Ronit said.
"I had to get the basic preparation for this role in terms of physicality. I had to get my body perfect and look powerful to show the power of a villain," he said.
He also reveals, Akshay was kind enough to help him a lot as far as action scenes were concerned.
Ronit has been part of the small screen for quite some time and has played memorable roles like Mihir Virani of `Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi`, Mr Bajaj of `Kasauti Zindagi Kay` and others.
In `Boss`, Ronit will be seen in completely different avatar - he plays a corrupt cop.
"Villains have to be powerful though they get beaten up in the end. Despite this fact the negative force is always required in the film... It keeps the interest alive. In the past we have seen that characters like Gabbar, Mogambo and others became popular just like the heroes," he said.
Besides Akshay and Ronit, the film features Mithun Chakraborty, Aditi Rao Hydari, Shiv Pandit and Johnny Lever.
