Akshay Kumar, who is generally doing comic roles these days, says that he loves to portray negative characters more often as they give him immense joy.

“I think the villain always enjoys so much in major part of the film’s duration. He fixes up the heroine, runs around her. The hero is always busy protecting and working for his sister and mother. Only in the last five minutes of the film he gets beaten. I want to play villain’s role more often,” Kumar told PTI.

When asked if he would like to explore any other genre given his success in action and comedy roles, he said that there is so much to learn about comedy itself. “There are many untouched genres. Even in comedy there are so many things in which you actually want to catch up with. The way Prakash Raj approaches to comedy, I want to do that,” he said.

However, Kumar has now started enjoying his work after flourishing 27 years in the industry. “Today when I get up in the morning, and if I have to go for a shoot, I am very eager to do that. I am so happy with myself that this greed has not gone from me,” the actor said.

He also stated that he loves to portray different characters and is grateful to his profession which allows him to portray different characters on-screen. “I enjoy doing different characters. Where in the world will you get a profession like this where you can play so many characters – you can romance so many beautiful girls, you can play so many sports… But still get paid,” he added.

Kumar will be seen next in the comedy flick ‘Entertainment’, which is scheduled to release on 8th August.
