Looks like Akki is tired of playing heroic roles onscreen
Akshay Kumar’s fans are used to seeing him beating up the bad guys on the big screen, but the action star wants to switch places. The actor, who has starred in the Khiladi series,
has played a conman in Special 26 and a blind bank robber in Aankhen.
He did a full-fledged negative role in 2001 film Ajnabee, which saw his co-star Bobby Deol throwing punches at him. And now the actor, who has studied martial arts, wants to do more such roles.
“I want to do more villain roles. The first two-and-a-half hour he (villain) gets to enjoy and last five minutes he gets beaten up. It doesn’t matter who beats me up as long as I can enjoy the first two-and-half-hours and the poor hero is slogging,” Akshay told in an interview.
The audience will have to wait for him to play a baddie as he will be seen as an army officer in his next.
