8th Aug, 2022

Akshay Kumar is one of the most disciplined actors of the Indian Film Industry. Presently, the Entertainment star continues to complete 4 or more movies each year. Recently, the actor is aggressively promoting his next film Raksha Bandhan.

While promoting Raksha Bandhan, in a media chat, Akshay Kumar was questioned about his opinion of the need of actors to take pay cuts and if he would ever do that. Akshay confessed that a writer is the most important person on a film project. He called dialogue and script of a film, the most important aspect, while accepting that the writers are still not given their due importance in the industry. He told after the writers, the most important people in the film crew are the director, the technicians and finally actors.

While they debated about the actor’s lack of commitment on a film project, the actor said that he is committed to finishing a film in time, hence causing minimal financial burden. He further added that people are bothered by the lack of big box office numbers and believe that things need to be changed. The Khiladi 786 revealed that he has been told to do less work right through his career, especially during his early days. The actor talked about how he takes maximum number of holidays for any individual in the film industry, by not working on Sundays, and only half day on Saturday. He also revealed, “I spend only 8 hours on a film set in the day, but I don’t spend a single minute of those 8 hours in a vanity van. I am always standing on the floor of the movie set. My 8 hours are equal to 14-15 hours of any other star. That’s my commitment to the movies”

Akshay Kumar will next be seen in Aanand L Rai’s Raksha Bandhan with Bhumi Pednekar. The movie releases on 11th August and will be clashing with Aamir Khan’s Laal Singh Chaddha.
