"I believe in today's time it's better to sit at home
than do a bad film. I'm very satisfied with my career. It's
been 16 years since I gave my first shot. It's been a long time.
In a population of one billion, very few people get this opportunity
to work in films. So I feel very blessed. It's not easy to survive
as an actor. So I'm very happy," added the actor.
Akshaye, who was last seen in the 2009 release "Shortkut
- The Con is On", is looking forward to his first release
of the year "Aakrosh".
Releasing Friday, the action drama that revolves around honour
killings will see Akshaye working with Ajay Devgn after a gap
of eight years. The two were last seen in the 2002 film "Deewangee".
"I've got back with Ajay in a film after eight years.
In fact, I told him recently that we should work together more
often. Apart from having a very good personal relationship,
I think we share a very good chemistry on screen.
"We work well together as actors and there is a comfort
level between us and I think that's very important," revealed
Akshaye, who is playing a cop in the film, directed by Priyadarshan.
The film also stars Bipasha Basu and Paresh Rawal in pivotal
Asked whether he would like to get into production or direction
like his contemporaries, the actor refused.
"I have no plans to get into direction or production.
I just don't have any inclination. Some people have and they
feel that one day they will direct a film, but I don't have
any such wish. I'm very happy being an actor."
After "Aakrosh", the actor will also be seen in Farah
Khan's directorial venture "Tees Maar Khan" at the
end of the year.
