Mumbai: Superstar Akshay Kumar has touted Ranbir Kapoor and Ranveer Singh as the next Bollywood heart-throbs.

Khiladi Akshay, said that according to him, the next superstars would be Ranbir and Ranveer and that the new crop of actors is definitely very talented.

"I think Ranbir Kapoor, Ranveer Singh and others are doing well. In my eyes, they are next superstars," Akshay said.

Akshay spoke to the media at the trailer launch of his soon to be released home production, `Fugly`.

"When we came as newcomers we needed support but today`s newcomers don`t need it... They are fit, good, mentally balanced, and professionally better than us. They know what they want or don`t want," he added.

"The way they are going is good. There is no need to teach them... They have knowledge about everything. I think they need support of their family (than us)," he added.

In `Fugly`, the actor is launching newcomers including Olympic medal winner boxer Vijender Singh and Anil Kapoor`s nephew Mohit Marwah.

When asked if he has taken a risk by casting newcomers in the film, Akshay said, "In every film there is a risk whether I act in films or the films that I produce. I am confident about the film."

`Fugly` is helmed by Kabir Sadanand.
