It’s action innings for Akshay Kumar
The 'Khiladi' of Bollywood says he is absolutely geared for the new innings.
"It's been some two to three years that I have stayed away from action movies. It's because when my son (Aarav) was two years old, I was scared that what if something happened to me...that's why I was off action," Akshay said.
The 44-year-old established himself as the 'khiladi' of Bollywood thanks to a slew of daredevil stunts in action films like 'Khiladi', 'Khiladiyon Ka Khiladi', 'Waqt Hamara Hai', and 'Mohra'.
In the 2000's, he began playing comic roles in films including 'Hera Pheri', 'Garam Masala', 'Phir Hera Pheri', 'Bhagam Bhaag', 'Welcome', 'Singh Is King', 'Housefull', and 'Tees Maar Khan'.
But with 'Rowdy Rathore', directed by Prabhu Deva, he promises to be back in the familiar 'khiladi' avatar.
"Every father would understand the emotion behind the decision of withdrawing from action because nothing else matters for parents than the children's happiness and well-being.
"But now my son is nine years old. God forbid if something happens to me, he can do something... So I am back to action, and absolutely ready for another innings," said Akshay, who adorns the cover of the latest issue of Stardust magazine.
For now the actor is busy promoting Sajid Khan's 'Housefull 2', releasing on April 5, 2012.
