Despite consecutively starring in films with socially-driven messages, Akshay Kumar recently shared it has not been a conscious decision.
At the trailer launch of his upcoming film ‘Gold’, Kumar denied being stuck in a genre, “I am doing all kinds of movies. Now, I am shooting for ‘Housefull 4’ and that film is not going to deliver any social message. The only message it’s going to give is that you should laugh more often. Similarly, I am doing ‘Good News’ and there are many other things which I am doing which does not have anything to do with social cause.”
He also emphasized that, “There are so many things which I do… they all are very close to my heart. That is why I am doing so. There is no one particular genre or reason why I am doing a certain kind of film. They are very close… whether it’s ‘Toilet – Ek Prem Katha’ (2017), ‘Pad Man’ (2018) or ‘Airlift’ (2016) or ‘Gold’.”, IANS reported.
‘Good News’ is a comedy produced by Karan Johar, starring Kareena Kapoor Khan, Diljit Dosanjh and Kiara Advani. Kumar’s latest release will be ‘Gold’, coming in theatres on 15th August.
