Akshay Kumar: None Of Us Are In The Rat RaceOctober 28th, 2010 - 8:55 pm ICT by Sampurn Wire
October 28, 2010 (Sampurn Wire): After ‘Housefull’ and ‘Khatta Meetha’, Akshay Kumar is ready with his third release of the year - ‘Action Replayy’. This is not all as before the end of 2010, he would also be seen in ‘Tees Maar Khan’. While he goes ahead at an unrelenting pace, his contemporaries too have been doing well for themselves.
While Aamir Khan has pretty much created a world of his own, especially so after ‘3 Idiots’, Salman has come back with a bang as well after ‘Dabangg’. Meanwhile, Shah Rukh is waiting for the kill with ‘Ra. 1′ and ‘Don’ lined up. So does one see some good battle beginning once again in 2011 between all these actors when it comes to occupying that top slot?
“There are no battles or wars but I’m sure the media will make it a great adventure for us. It’s going to be lively for sure”, laughs Akshay when asked to comment.
Turning serious, he goes on add, “I think all of us are past the ‘fight for the top slot’ stage. We have created our own slots and are happy doing our own thing.”
On a different note, while there was so much being said and written about his so-called rivalry with Shah Rukh Khan till about a year or so back, today the focus has shifted to Shah Rukh-Salman tussle. For someone like him who has been known for his non-confrontational image, does it sound all so unnecessary after all?
“You said so yourself, I’m non-confrontational. I’d be a fool to comment now, wouldn’t I”, states Akshay with a straight face before signing off.
