Mistakes are steps to go ahead in life: Akshay Kumar

Mumbai: Bollywood superstar Akshay Kumar believes that mistakes are a part of our lives and they actually serve as steps to go ahead in life.

"Everyone commits mistakes. It happens now and will happen in future. I have made mistakes and I still do. Things either go right or wrong. There is no actor in the industry who does not commit any mistake. There is no actor who will say I will never make any," Akshay said here today.

"According to me, mistakes are a big step to go ahead in life. There is not much change in me except that my bank balance has increased," he said.

Akshay, who had a successful year with films like `Housefull 2`, `Rowdy Rathore`, `Oh My God` and `Khiladi 786` proving to be superhits.

"I don`t believe in competition as I don`t believe in number one or two or three. I am not a horse running in a race course," the actor said.

This year, Akshay has a number of films lined up for release, including Neeraj Pandey`s heist drama `Special Chabbis` (February 8), Milan Luthria`s crime drama `Once Upon A Time in Mumbaai 2` (August) and Anthony D`Souza`s action film `Boss` (June).
