Akshay looking for negative roles

Akshay Kumar who is excited about his new release “Rowdy Rathore” is also looking forward to try some new roles.

“I like doing negative roles, but something like the one I did in ‘Ajnabee’ where the villain is not just to beat up. There should be some material as well. If I get something like that, then I’ll definitely do it,”

the 44-year-old, said here.

“We are like products, we present what the audience likes. People love when Shah Rukh Khan does a romantic film, people want me to do action so I am doing action, they want me to do comedy so I do comedy,”

said Akshay.


Akshay says it is risky to do something out-of-the-box as you don’t know how audience will receive it.


“Sometimes there are things which we like and present to the audience that is called experimental. I did ‘8X10 Tasveer’, which was more of an experimental film, to make myself happy. But it made the distributors sad,”

said Akshay.


Akshay’s next is “Rowdy Rathore”, releasing June 1. Besides this, he will be seen in varied films like sci-fi thriller “Joker”, real-life robbery drama “Special Chabbis” and his co-production “Khiladi 786”.
