Mumbai: Akshay Kumar, whose upcoming film 'Once Upon Ay Time In Mumbai Dobaara!' will hit the cinema houses soon, says films are not made to "outdo" anyone in the industry.

"We don't make films for reason like I would outdo someone or their films. We don't make films to cut each other's work. We are all in one industry. Don't divide us. We all make our films with hard work and love and want people to enjoy it," Akshay told reporters.

Shah Rukh Khan starrer 'Chennai Express' is set to release on August 9, John Abraham's 'Madras Cafe' will hit cinema houses on August 23 and Prakash Jha's multi-starrer political drama 'Satyagraha' will reportedly release on August 30.

"We do make a good film but to outdo one another. I focus on my work, what I want to do in my film. I don't believe in competition or the number game," he continued.

In 'Once Upon Ay Time In Mumbai Dobaara!', Akshay plays an underworld don.

Ask him if he wants to be remembered as a villain, Akshay says, "About me being remembered as a villain, I don't know if that will happen or not as the film is yet to release, how much the film or my role will be liked or not is yet to be known."

"But yes, I was absolutely sure about the role I want to play. I loved the role. I think all girls prefer bad boys," he said with a smile.

Third promo of Milan Luthria directed 'Once Upon Ay Time In Mumbai Dobaara!' was launched last night with the core team- Akshay, Imran Khan, Sonakshi Sinha, Milan and producer Ekta Kapoor.

"I used my weight...Power on producers and told them at the edit table to make a new promo for me," he said in a lighter vein.
