Akshay Kumar may be ruling the roost in Bollywood giving hit after hits and enjoying stardom. However, recently the actor made an ugly remark that attacked the sincerity and dedication of genuine actors, who put in their heart and soul into their character to make its lively.
Akshay Kumar, who is busy these days working in around 3to 4 films a year, was recently asked; doesn’t he feel exhausted doing so many films? In reply Akshay said, “When we are provided A-Grade facilities like air-conditioned vanity vans to relax, dry fruits foods to eat and lovely ladies to work than how can it be taxing?”
Indirectly taunting at serious actors, who claim it is quite tiresome to do certain characters Akshay Kumar taunted, “I think it is only ‘fake actors’ who claim about getting completely drained after doing a film.”
It seems Akshay Kumar was indirectly attacking at Bollywood actress Deepika Padukone, who recently remarked that working in Sanjay Leela Bhansali's BAJIRAO MASTANI had been more draining than RAM LEELA.
In an interview she said, "Working in BAJIRAO MASTANI has been very difficult. It has been the toughest film of my career. I worked very hard for this film. When we did RAM LEELA it was emotionally and physically draining film, but now, RAM LEELA feels easy and effortless in comparison to Bajirao Mastani.”
In fact Deepika Padukone is not the only actress who has made such a remake. Whenever an actor does a tough character, he does make such a statement.
Remember recently versatile actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui, who gave a mindboggling performance in MANJHI - THE MOUNTAIN MAN had candidly confessed that even after doing the film he could not come out from the character for many days. He said, “For many days I was so captivated in the character that to get away from the character I had to leave Mumbai, quite my shooting and spend quality time in the midst of nature.”
I think since Mr. Akshay Kumar has never done such kind of complex and nerve-racking roles he may not understand their trauma and their pain. Hence he deserved to be ‘pardoned’ for terming such exceptionally brilliant actors as ‘fake actors!’ Readers what do you think??
