Bollywood’s action star Akshay Kumar, who’s equally good at comedy, has a pragmatic approach towards the movie genres and says that he is open to doing sex comedies because for him it would be just “a character”.
“Nobody is forcing you to watch such films. Grand Masti (2013) did well at the box office, but if you don’t like it, then don’t watch it. If I get a good script, I will also do it. At the end of the day, it’s just a film. It’s just a character that you are following. You do not become a sex maniac or anything as such. Take a film as a film, let it be reel not real,” said the 46-year-old.
“If it’s a sex comedy, don’t feel shy about what the audience will think and all! If you are making such a film, trust yourself and go with your conviction rather than thinking that you will lose a few fans with this film.” he added.
Akshay’s body of work includes Priyadarshan’s directorial film Garam Masala (2005), which he describes as a sex comedy. He said: “I think sex comedy is a very good genre. I did it long back. I would put Garam Masala in the same zone.”
