'I would be a fool to make a biopic on myself'- Did Akshay Kumar take a dig at Sanjay Dutt biopic Sanju?
"I would never ever make a biopic on myself and I will never write a book on myself," Akshay said in an interview to IANS.
"There are so many amazing stories in history, like Tapan Das (his character in 'Gold'), Arunachalam Muruganantham on whose life "Padman" was based, who have steered India in a positive direction. I would be a fool to make a biopic on myself. I would never even think of it, it will be a shallow thing to do for myself. I want to make biopic on real heroes and not reel heroes," he added.
