I want to do a horror comedy: Akshay Kumar

Bollywood superstar Akshay Kumar has been experimenting with his roles and films in the last couple of years. The shift from doing similar films to mixing up the genre, has worked big time for the actor who was seen in films like Baby, Gabbar Is Back, Brothers, Airlift, Housefull 3 and the upcoming Rustom.

“I want to do a horror comedy. I did ‘Bhool Bhulaiyaa’, but then after that I didn’t get a script like that.. I feel two different genres like horror which has a fear element and comedy which has laughter in it.. To combine both of them together is very difficult. Only Mehmood was successful in that. I would like to do that genre again” Akshay said.

The actor also said, his next film ‘Rustom’ has a script that has never been written before.

“This kind of a screenplay, script has never been written before. When a man goes the other way, his wife has to forgive. Nobody has shown when a woman goes the other way and comes back, then what happens.”

Talking about his character in the film, Akshay said there is something about the navy uniform that brings a transformation of sorts as soon as he slips into it.

“When I’m getting ready, I wear my navy trousers and a banyan inside, till that time I am okay, normal. When the uniforms used to come, the badges, the cap, my walk completely changed; I started gliding. There is something about uniforms that it gives you a certain kind of responsibility; it just tells you, ‘you are the man, you take the charge, you do everything”

“When you see the movie, you will see that my walk has changed while I’m entering the courtroom or anything. So I envy these people who wear uniform. That’s why I also did the contest that whenever you see a guy in a uniform, have a selfie” he added.

About his preparation to play a naval officer, he said “I didn’t specially sit down and took books to learn about the navy rules and regulations. I didn’t interact with any naval men, only there was one naval officer who was guiding me throughout about how the salute is, how the badges are to be worn, how the uniforms should be and how the walk should be.”

After more than two decades in the industry, Akshay says he has no regrets.

“I don’t have any regrets and I am happy that I am in this industry. I look at my journey without any regret and anybody would love to be in my shoes.. If I even had a bit of regret, then there is no point because of whatever god has given me, there is no space for regrets” he said.



  • Akshay sir can only excel in comedy…the way srk can only excel in romance…there is only 1 acting legend in Bollywood and he is Ajay sir and there is only 1 megastar in Bollywood and he is Salman sir

  • he is really doing a meaningful scripts and trying to attempt all kind of rolls which is really good. and no one can act like him as he is suitable for all scripts.wish u very all the best for rustom .must be blockbuster movie

  • mohenjo daro & rustom both will be epic
    but i want to see whether rustom will match the class of drishyam(best thriller ever) or not

  • Hmmm.. would really be excited if he does another horror comedy with the right script. Bhool Bhulaiyaa is one of my favorite Akshay Kumar films from the last decade. Vidya’s acting as Manjikula and Akshay’s comic relief (till the last 40 minutes) and the thrill elements in the last 1 hr made it one of the best horror thrillers ever in Bollywood.

  • Respect Akshay Kumar and Rustom Movie
    But I won’t give to Your Coward fans who critizing and bashing Mohenjo Daro Movie

    I hope both movies will success at Box office
    All the Best of Luck !!!

  • Horror comedy if dn right can b lot of fun…evil dead 2…comes to mind immediately…. Closer home ..bhool bhulaiya was decent too….recently saw south movie kanchana and kanchana2… Dey were fun esp 1….akshay WD a capable director can definitey improve it ..and deliver a good movie…if original scripts of D’s genre r not forthcoming…and waiting 4 Rustom… Definitely going

  • when indicine was about career best performances of all the top actors ,it mentioned everybody’s except akshay kumar’s..,indicine said that it too difficult to choose one as their are many,the ques was asked in one of the q and a’s

  • Bollywood should experiment horror comedies… Go Goa Gone was excellent but it didn’t make great business mostly because of its lack of star power. I’m sure that a sequel with Akshay sir would be a superhit !!

  • look at both his movies this year which r completely contrasting and luk at his performances in both.mindblowing stuff n not to forget both were 100 cr grossers inspite of releasing in non holiday and within 5 months gap.only akki can make it possible.

  • Akshay kumar is the Best superstar And I am his on of the biggest fan…!
    Action, romance, comedy, looks,Style,Versatility, Dance,Expressions. COMPLETE SUPERSTAR.

  • Yes I also wants that Salman made a horror movie. I am a fan of horror movies. Why didn’t actors don’t do horror movies? That’s why horror movies collections haven’t even cross 80 crore mark. The best director in scary movies is Vikram Bhatt. His movies are superb. 1920, Shaapit, Haunted 3-D, Raaz3, 1920 evil returns, Horror story, Creature 3-D, Khamoshiyan, 1920 London, Raaz all these were superb movies and are on my top 20 best movies list. I don’t know why their movies are so underrated. Even 1920 London was a great movie. It has well horror scenes but not enough. Bhatt family are the only horror movie makers of Bollywood. I am sure that Raaz4 will great. The only Bhatt movie which I didn’t like was Raaz2. Public don’t like them because they want rubbish type of horror movied like Darna Mana Hai, Phoonk, Alone or RGV directed movies in horror. Creature3D, 1920 London, 1920 evil returns and Raaz3 receive negative reviews but still was awesome movies. But don’t know why any big actor cant star in horror movies. My top ten best movies list –
    1. Dabangg
    2. Maine Pyar Kiya
    3. HAHK
    4. 3Idiots / Ram-Leela
    5. Golmaal3 / 2012 (hwood )
    6. Prem Ratan Dhan Payo / Kites
    7. Andaz Apna Apna / Koi Mil Gaya
    8. Bajrangi Bhaijaan / Creature 3D
    9. Ready / Phir Hera Pheri / Ghajini
    10. Roy / Race 2 / YJHD
    #True Salman Fans

  • You can do anything, Akki Bhai…

    You are AKSHAY KUMAR…

    The most versatile actor and pure risk taker (Khiladi) ever produced by Indian Cinema…


    Bow Down And Ton Of Love…

  • @Ajay salman fan ha ha ha. What a joke? The only Megastar? The only Megastar who has given back to back flops and disasters? Can’t stop laughibg. Lallu is only a bhojpuri star. Only srk and Aamir are true megastars.

  • Bhulbhuliya was a epic……….and movie becomes so fast when akshay paji entered in the movie…….Super movie……If again happens it will becomes HOGTY
