Akshay Kumar has made a name for himself as one of the busiest actors in present day Bollywood. The actor is never one to shy away from juggling multiple projects at a time. The actor is currently awaiting his third release of the year, which comes in the form of Aanand L. Rai’s Raksha Bandhan. The actor recently opened up about his work ethic.
In conversation with ETimes, Akshay revealed that even though he had gained a reputation as a busy actor, he probably took the most holidays compared to any other actor. The star said that he never worked on Sundays and always worked half days on Saturdays. He spoke of how a lot of people had questioned his decision to do four films a year and asked him to slow down without being aware of his work ethic.
The actor said that he consistently spent 8 hours of every work day on sets, making sure to put every minute to good use. Akshay said that even Aanand had said that the former’s work culture had changed the director’s very perception of working. “My 8 hours are equal to 14-15 hours of any other star. That’s my commitment to the movies”, said Akshay.
Akshay will next be seen in Raksha Bandhan, which is slated for release on August 11. The film also stars Bhumi Pednekar, Sahejmeen Kaur, Deepika Khanna, Sahil Mehta, Sadia Khateeb and Smrithi Srikanth, and will be available for streaming on ZEE5 after its theatrical run.
Akshay also has a number of projects in his kitty at the moment, including Abhishek Sharma’s Ram Setu, Raj Mehta’s Selfiee, Amit Rai’s OMG 2 – Oh My God! 2, the Hindi remake of Soorarai Pottru helmed by Sudha Kongara, Hera Pheri 3, Tinu Suresh Desai’s Capsule Gill and Aanand’s Gorkha, among others.
