Kareena Kapoor is sexy: Akshay Kumar
Q. What happens when you meet an extrovert like Simrita?
I'd actually be offended. I'd not like to speak to that person and just walk off. I'd never try to be near her at all.
Q. 'Kambakkht Ishq' looks like a mad comic caper.
Not at all. First of all, it's not a comic caper. It's a romantic comedy. Yes, it has many comic moments but it's also got love infused in it. Too much of romance is there in the film. It's all about one-upmanship between the two sexes and who is dominant. It's a superiority complex. The kind of dialogues we have with each other is the kind of dialogues you will relate to. Somewhere or the other it'll remind you of the similar type of conversation you've had with a woman in your life. There aren't many films of such nature which are being made in Hindi cinema. I believe that Men are from Mars and Women are from Heaven.
Q. You've worked with Aftab Shivdasani in 'Awara Pagal Deewana'. How is Affy now after you've last seen him a good, four to five years ago?
Affy can play these kinds of roles very easily like he played in 'Awara Pagal Deewana'. He fits the 'bechara', 'pyaar ka maara' type of roles very well. You feel sorry for his character in the film. He is very true to his character in whichever film he performs. I loved him in 'Kasoor' where he played an obsessed lover alongside Lisa Ray. He was superb in the film.
Q. What's the fun in being an incompatible couple?
The fun is what women think about men and what men think about women. We just say it openly about it. We curse each other which is great. We pull our leg, disagree with every word we say and that's fun.
Q. Lean and fit is your fitness statement. You're fit at 40 unlike others who're still pumping iron to stay in shape.
I don't think that's right. I believe in having an athletic body more than a bulkier body. I am too natural when it comes to fitness. I do not pick up weights. Obviously, a body like me does help in terms of an action film and stunts. Most of my stunts are performed by me because of this athletic body. If I had bulging biceps, I could only bash somebody up.
Q. Why is there so much expectation surrounding your release always?
Because my fans expect a lot of fun and entertainment from Akshay Kumar. They've seen me in my last five years doing mad comedy. That's the reason why. They come in search of masala, they come in search of laughter, they come in search of emotions here and there and they've got everything to take back home with them after watching my comic films. And when they didn't get '8 X 10 Tasveer', they got disappointed. No masti, fun, laughter. I need to do different films to get into a different mode. Films like '8 X 10 Tasveer' satisfy me as an actor. I'm very proud of Nagesh.
