Actor Akshay Kumar, whose latest release Airlift is in theaters, who has over millions of well-wishers across India, credits his fans for making an actor a “star”.

“What I have understood with these many years in the industry is that an actor is a star because of his (or her) fans and should do anything in power to entertain viewers,” Akshay said in a statement.

Akshay added that when he joined the Hindi film fraternity, he “didn’t have much of a choice.

“All I was ever really good at was stunts as I had to make my mark. That was what I focused on the most,” he said.

The “Khiladi” actor added that he doesn’t take things for granted and has gone through highs and lows in his over a decade long movie career.

“There was a time when I delivered 14 flops in a row. I was down in the dumps, and suddenly the 15th film worked and then there were 16 films which were box office hits,” he said.

Akshay is known for action film as well as comedy movies like “Singh Is Kinng” and “Welcome”.

The actor feels great to know the audience love the movies he does and adds that he likes doing films which offer “wholesome entertainment to the entire family”.

“There is lot of hard work put in by a lot of people to make the movie and bring it to audiences. I like doing film which offer wholesome entertainment to the entire family, and the ‘Singh’ series is a perfect blend of comedy, romance, action and a lot of masti!” the “Baby” star.”

The “Khiladi” star shared that he requested his co-star Lara Dutta Bhupathi to be a part of “Singh Is Bliing”, which will be aired on Zee Cinema on January 30.

“I love working with Lara. In fact I had requested her to do ‘Singh Is Bliing’ which she obliged. And her performance is flawless in the movie as usual,” he said.
