New Delhi, Oct 31 (PTI) Superstar Akshay Kumar, who is doing a cameo in his upcoming production venture ‘The Shaukeens’, says he found it very different to play an alcoholic in the comedy drama.
The 47-year-old actor said he is a teetotaller in real life.
“I am playing an alcoholic in the film. It was a very different shade to pull off. In the film, I am playing an angry man too. So, these are various shades which have been put in my character and I am not really of that kind in real life,” Akshay said during the promotion of the film here.
In the film, Akshay is teaming up with Anupam Kher, with whom he is also shooting Neeraj Pandey’s movie ‘Baby’.
“I never face any problem when shooting with Anupam Kher.
There is always a positive environment when he is on the sets.
We did many films together. I did my first film with him.
“In the middle there was no association between him and me. But now we are again doing many films together. I really enjoy working with him. We do loads of fun when we work together,” Akshay said.
Asked about the dialogue where Akshay says he still has not won any national award, the ‘Holiday: A Soldier is Never off Duty’ star said, “It’s just a dialogue in the film and please don’t take it seriously… I don’t mind if I don’t get a national award in the future.”
The actor-producer said he has only borrowed the concept from the 1982 Basu Chatterjee movie and put it in a contemporary setting.
