The 47-year-old star, who is behind hits including 'Entertainment', 'Holiday', 'Special 26', 'OMG – Oh My God!', says he wants to take risks as a producer-actor.

Akshay Kumar, the force behind hits like ‘Entertainment’, ‘Holiday’, ‘OMG!’, says he wants to take risks.

Superstar Akshay Kumar says the Rs 100-200 crore box office collections clubs in Bollywood do not excite him as an actor anymore.

The 47-year-old star, who is behind hits including ‘Entertainment’, ‘Holiday’, ‘Special 26’, ‘OMG – Oh My God!’, says he wants to take risks as a producer-actor.

“I do four films in a year. And I do that quite easily and I get a lot of holidays. I always reach on time on sets. So why shouldn’t I do four films? I like to do new things in films. I don’t look out for 100-200 crore clubs. I love to take on risky stuff that I see as creatively satisfying.”

Akshay will start his next project with Karan Johar. Titled ‘Brothers’, the film also has Siddharth Malhotra.

“I am going to start my schedule in Brothers. I have lost about 10 kilos for this role. Siddharth Malhotra has gained 10 kilos. He is bulked up and is looking great. And as his brother I am supposed to look weak in front of him,” he said.

Akshay, who would be seen in a guest appearance in his upcoming production venture ‘The Shaukeens’, says he does not want to do hero-centric films as he is bored

“I don’t want to do only hero films… I have to change myself because I get bored. I just can’t do films like ‘Rowdy Rathore’ again and again. There are films like ‘Gabbar’, ‘Baby’ and ‘Airlift’ where I will be seen in different avatars,” he said.

The ‘Khiladi’ star has wrapped up the shooting of Neeraj Pandey’s action-thriller ‘Baby’ in just 32 days.

“Neeraj Pandey has worked on the film for 1.5 years and he must have made 10-12 drafts of the film. He has completed the film in total 50 days,” he added.
