Akshay Kumar's last two outings - "Khatta Meetha"
and "Action Replayy" - failed to make the cash registers
jingle. This hasn't dampened the Bollywood star's spirit but
he admits he is craving for a big hit and hopes his "Tees
Maar Khan" will hit bull's eye.
"If you follow my career graph, there have been a lot
of ups and downs. It doesn't matter. I am not desperate, but,
yes, I crave for a big hit all the time because I work very
hard. I release around four films a year. I work very hard in
each and every film," Akshay told IANS in an interview.
His last release was "Action Replayy" and the 43-year-old
star feels either the screenplay or his retro look in "Action
Replayy" couldn't connect with the audience.
" 'Action Replayy' didn't work. It couldn't connect with
the audience. I tried to reason out and I think it would be
because of the look or because of the screenplay," said
Akshay, who is also known for his comic timing. He tickled the
funny bone with movies like "Hera Pheri", "Singh
is Kinng" and "Namastey London".
Right now he is looking forward to his action-packed fun film
"Tees Maar Khan", which is scheduled for a Christmas
release. Director Farah Khan is presenting him as a conman.
"This is a fun character, full of enjoyment. He (the character)
is a conman and so there is a lot of mischief. The character
is actually very shrewd. He always tries fooling people because
he wants to make it big. He never does anything himself; he
makes people do things for him. I haven't done such a fun and
frolic role for a long time," said Akshay.
