After doing multiple comedy dramas and social message-driven films, Akshay Kumar is returning to the territory that he had dominated in the early years of his career — action. Khiladi Kumar, who is riding high on the success of Pad Man, will be next seen in a period drama, Gold, but apart from that, he has two back to back high octane action flicks. In his recent interview, he says that as much as he enjoys doing thought-provoking films, he is also making certain of balancing them with actioners. "I'm 50 now. How much time do I have left [to do action]? How much can my body take? Realistically, I probably have another five years to do action, so I'd like to do as much of it while I can," he reasons.
Kumar wisely mixed his masala potboilers with social dramas — a formula that ensured he stayed relevant to an otherwise fickle audience. "The only thing that attracts audiences is change. I keep myself relevant by not settling for what's comfortable or easy. The industry has changed for the better — be it the kind of scripts that are being written, the music, or the pay cheques for actors."
Talking about his role of Dr Richard in 2.0, the actor says his wife Twinkle Khanna and he have a proclivity towards horror movies, presumably the reason why Akshay Kumar opted for this film. "Tina and I are big fans of the genre. [We enjoy] anything that can scare the shit out of us."
