While other A-listers shy away from doing sex comedies, the Boss actor seems to think otherwise
Bollywood’s action star Akshay Kumar, who is equally good at comedy, has a pragmatic approach towards the movie genres and says that he is open to doing sex comedies because for him it would be just “a character”.
Sex comedies are not often appreciated by the masses, but Akshay said: “Nobody is forcing you to watch such films. Grand Masti did well at the box office, but if you don’t like it then don’t watch it.”
“If I get a good script, I will also do it. At the end of the day, it’s just a film. It’s just a character that you are following. You do not become a sex maniac or anything as such. Take a film as a film let it be reel not real,” the 46-year-old told reporters in a group interview.
“If it’s a sex comedy don’t feel shy what the audience will think and all! If you are making such a film, trust yourself and go with your conviction rather than thinking about you will lose few audience with this film.”
His body of work includes Garam Masala, which he describes as a sex comedy. Directed by Priyadarshan Garam Masala featured Akshay and John Abraham in the lead and it was a box office success.
He said: “I think sex comedy is a very good genre. I did it long back. I would put Garam Masala in the same zone.”
