1. Award...oh sorry reward
The Khiladi said that he isn’t worried about awards and critical acclaim. He is happy that his films get good recognition from the public. “I get good rewards. Besides ‘Airlift’ and ‘Rustam’, even ‘Housefull’ got awards oh sorry rewards from people,” he said. He even talked about his nok-jhok with wife Twinkle who taunted him by saying, “Look at my dad, look at my mom. They have got national awards and you have not received any”.
2. Making a film in 45 days
When being questioned on doing four films a year and finishing movies quickly as compared to other Bollywood stars, he said, “I follow my director. I face problems on the first day as I need to step into the shoes of a new character but then from second day onwards, I become more and more comfortable and start playing the characters much faster.”
Further the Khiladi added, “When Tom Cruise takes 42 days to shoot a film like “Mission Impossible” then why should I take 90 to 150 days to complete a movie.”
3. Giving 16 back-to-back flops
When Rajat Sharma questioned the actor as to how he felt after giving 11 back-to-back flop movies in the past, Mr Funny Bones said, “Not 11, I had 16 back-to-back flops.” However, he survived in Bollywood because of his professionalism. He continued, “You have to be a producer’s actor and keep good terms with them. The industry people are Dilwale but you must never ever forget professionalism.”
4. Making people laugh is tough
Akshay, who is always known for his comical roles said that he has done all kinds of roles in his Bollywood career but comedy is the toughest of them all.

He went on to give an amusing example and said, “A fan told me that his son eats only when he watches ‘Hera Pheri’. So if my film is helping people to digest their food, then where is the problem?”
