I make films that make a difference to the society, not for BO records: Akshay Kumar

In an interview to promote his upcoming film ‘Gabbar Is Back’, Bollywood superstar Akshay Kumar has said that he doesn’t do films that break box office records. Instead, the actor says, he makes films that make a difference to the society.

“I am not a part of a film to break box office records. I am a part of a film because I enjoy it and I like the story. Be it OMG! Oh My God, Holiday or Gabbar is Back, I have done films which makes difference to the society.”

Akshay also went on to add that he has earned enough money to make different films that are socially relevant.

“To be honest , in my life, I have earned a lot of money and I have paid my taxes as well. I am one of the highest tax payers too! Now, I want to something which makes sense and makes a difference. I had a different take on different topics and I have shown that in my films. In OMG, I had a different take on religion. Why put milk on Lord Shiva? He doesn’t want that. Doing a film like Gabbar is Back is my way to face & fight corruption. I cannot do anything apart from that, can I? Can you?”

On media-created comparisons with the top 3 Khans in the industry, Akshay said he wants every actor’s film to work.

“I am not interested in such stories that suggest I am better than the Khans or they are better than me. Itís nothing like that. We all are one and we are all are part of the same industry. I would want everybodyís films to work because our Industry needs more and more money to make better quality films. I do not believe in competition.”

  • Respect for Akki… and one thing more Everyone can act, everyone does good movies, they doing offbeat, performances oriented movies and masala types movies means (sometimes they get success, sometimes not) but the only person who does back to back crap from last 20 years specially from last 10-15 years is Salman, neither he knows acting nor he does good movies except craps back to back even if people do remakes they choose good performance oriented remakes while salman chooses a movie like jai ho, ready,bodyguard,kick,wanted. such a shame seriously.

  • He’s done films like OMG, Baby, Special 26 & upcoming Airlift but he’s also done a lot of masala or typical commercial films (even gabbar is) which with box office results in mind.

  • he is saying that because he want to compare himself with khans. kal ye kahega ki he bigger than the khans

  • @gobar is black
    this is not the time to get the wrath of salmaniacs becoz gobar is black coming next week & akki is soon goin to be mr.x so shut up!

  • Films can’t make a difference to society and if they do then the impact is minimal. The whole fighting against corruption and trying to make a change to society looks nice in films but never works out in real life.

  • @ navin please tell me criminal bhai best film on society & off beat film . He his acting is like tushar kapoor .

  • Yes,movies like khiladi 786,entertn,boss all made big difference to the society ie:they stopped watching your movies @gabbar is bad
    salman movies are acheiving its primary goal that’s box office success.what about akki?

  • Bina Soche Samjhe Bakwaas Kiye Ja Raha Hai. Houseful2, Rowdy Rathore, Joker, Khiliadi786, Special26, Boss, Ouatimd, Entertainment aur Shaukeens Ko Bhool Gaya. Ye to 2012-2015 Ki list hai. 25 Saalo Mein atleast 60-70 flops aur disasters di hai Makkhi Ne. Chutia Makkhi Kumar.

  • Now all haters will find out the negativities as much as they can…because they dont know what the word postive is…!!!
