Akshaye Khanna is enjoying the success and acclaim coming his way from his recent films. However the talented actor is also very aware how long his success lasts is all down to the audience.
Khanna had taken a conscious decision to choose smaller roles to hone his acting skills and has received praise for his performances in ‘Mom’ (2017), ‘Dishoom’ (2016) and now in the just released ‘Ittefaq’ (2017). Yet the actor knows that his success in the industry lies in the audience’s hands and it is they who decide the longevity of an actor’s career. “Every artiste’s shelf life… is their destiny. I have been working for so many years and one can see I have worked with so many actors, but some of them do not have work. For me, to be a working actor is enough and more. Their shelf life has expired. But there will be a Lata Mangeshkar or a Rishi Kapoor who are in demand even today. The audience determines whether they still want to watch you or not”, he said as reported in Mumbai Mirror.
Khanna has always been appreciated for his acting skills and his selection of interesting characters, yet he believes it is the audience that is the ultimate judge. The actor went onto say that the intention is always to do good quality work and put in a sincere effort, the success of a film is then down to the people watching it and their reaction.
