"I have been lucky with my life. I made a good career.
I didn't have any godfather in the industry. Whatever I have
achieved in life is because of my luck and a little bit of hard
work," Akshay told IANS.
"I am playing a very unlucky man in the film. He believes
his luck will change when he finds true love and gets married.
So he starts searching for the right girl. It's total entertainment,"
the actor said.
Shot in Britain, Italy, Hong Kong and India, the film also
stars Deepika Padukone, Lara Dutta, Jiah Khan, Arjun Rampal
and Riteish Deshmukh. Akshay says he's never given a thought
to why most comedies are multi-starrers.
"I never sat down to analyse why it's like that, but a
lot of people want two, three actors together when they make
comedies. Nowadays when you are doing a comedy, you are not
a hero, you become a character. That's the best part about doing
a comedy. You have to act not only as a hero but also as a comedian
and as an entertainer. There may be more points in it, so they
choose to make it a multi-starrer," said Akshay.
From his first film "Saugandh" (1991) to "Housefull",
Akshay has come a long way and in his almost two decades-long
journey he has tried every genre, but feels he still has cope
"There are a few genres, which people can actually do.
But these genres, be it comedy or tragedy, are so vast that
more you explore it, you realise there is something you have
yet to do. Comedy has different angles, romance has different
angles; so it's never ending. I would like to do a horror comedy,"
He is known for doing all stunts himself. Asked if he ever
felt scared, he said: "I fear doing every stunt. I think
one should fear because then you take double care of your safety.
There is a good fear and a bad fear. There is a good fear with
me, which tells me to do the stunts but safely."
