Akshay Kumar admits that while he’d love to experiment, his audience only wants to watch masala movies.

As he gears up for Farah Khan’s Tees Maar Khan, Akshay Kumar says he won’t compromise on the entertainment quotient of his films. “I love to play different roles and I am not afraid to experiment. But I have always known that only commercial cinema really works here. Oscar-winning movies never tend to work in India. It curbs what aspiring actors want to do in their careers,” he says.

Having acted in close to 100 films, he admits, “Masala movies are awesome, but sometimes one wants to break boundaries, create epics and perform challenging roles. But then India’s masses are not really interested in those films. Life is stressful enough that they just want to be entertained and really, I can’t blame them. Tees Maar Khan stands for the masses and pleasing them is all that I ever want to do.''
