Akshay hates being called 'King of Bollywood'
His recent roles might be 'king-sized' but Akshay Kumar prefers to be called Bollywood's clown rather than its king.
"I hate being called the king of Bollywood I will better be called a clown. My main concern is to entertain people," said Akshay Kumar, who was here to promote Kambakkht Ishq, released on Friday, with co-star Kareena Kapoor.
The Singh is Kinng star had raised some eyebrows with his rap song Sara Bollywood ek mera koi nahi mel. Acting karne chale aise hazaaro, Badshah ek baki saare fail inChandni Chowk to China.
Kambakkht Ishq boasts of an international starcast including Hollywood actors Sylvester Stallone, Bondgirl Richards and Brandon Routh and has Akshay playing the role of a Hollywood stuntman.
Akshay said like most of his films Kambakkht Ishq too is a complete Bollywood masala entertainer as it delves into the age-old battle of sexes.
"Logic does not work for me. I had worked in a logical film 8X 10 Tasveer but it bombed. I think films are bigger than life. 'Kambakkht Ishq' has a lot of comedy, emotions, action and battle of sexes," said the actor, who plays a typical male chauvinist character in the film.
The actor may be hailed as one of Bollywood's best action heroes with his death-defying stunts but Akshay said he too struggles to overcome his fears before performing a daring scene. "I just love heights but whenever I do a stunt, even if its from a stool, I get scared. But in the end I overcome my fears."
Talking about his experiences about sharing the screen space with Stallone, he said in a jocular vein, "I thought I'd be silent when I'll meet him. Of all the things, we were talking about bones. His knee was broken, while I had a bad back so the focus was on our respective doctors."
Akshay was quite adamant about his 'kissing' scene with former Bond girl Richards and said he did what was required in the film.
"Kambhakt Ishq represents a mix of cultures, I have done what was required," he said.
The actor who has moved away from the 'action' tag in recent comedy blockbusters felt it's very difficult to make people laugh.
"It is very easy to do an emotional scene, you can just put some glycerin. But to make people laugh through comedy is very difficult," he said.
