Salman and I are not racing horses to compete: Akshay Kumar:
Akshay Kumar gives a stern reply to being compared with Salman Khan as the numero uno action hero.
Akshay Kumar returns to ‘action’ with Rowdy Rathore , an action film directed by Prabhudeva , a genre which was his forte as a new comerand which established him asquintessential Bollywood’s ‘khiladi’.
The action hero tag has however been given to Salman Khan off late after his back-to-back action hits at the box office. With Wanted, Dabangg and Bodyguard, Salman Khan has become a force to reckon with in Bollywood.
With Akshay taking a much needed hiatus from comedy and making a comeback to action, comparison with Salman was inevitable but Akshay did not appreciate it.
At the music launch of the film which was held at Jambori maidan, Worli Akshay told the press,”Salman and I are not some racing horses of Mahalakshmi race course to compete with each other. He is doing good films and we are friends. We don’t think about who’s number 1, 2, 3! Iam returning to action after 7 years and I feel like a new comer. I have two more action films lined up other than Rowdy Rathore: ‘Once Upon a time in Mumbai sequel’ and ‘Special 26’.
