Will Akshay Kumar ever direct a film?

The action-turned-comedy star is busy acting and producing films, but is direction the next step?

Action star Akshay Kumar is busy producing films, but says he has no interest in donning a director’s hat in the future. He was present at the trailer launch of the film Fugly, which he has produced with Ashwini Yardi under their Grazing Goat Pictures banner.

Asked if he ever plans to turn to direction, he said, “I don’t want to go into direction, I am happy where I am. I don’t want to direct even. Why should I do anything that I don’t know?” The 46-year-old, who has impressed with his acting and daredevil stunts in various films, ventured into film production in 2008 and opened his production house Hari Om Entertainment. He then launched his second production house Grazing Goat Pictures with Ashwini Yardi in 2011. The first film under Grazing Goat Pictures was OMG – Oh My God!.

Currently, Akshay is busy shooting for his next Gabbar. Meanwhile, Fugly, directed by Kabir Sadanand features newcomers Mohit Marwah and Kiara Advani. Besides, it also features boxer Vijender Singh and actor Jimmy Shergill.
