"I am doing Holiday with Murugadoss. I would like to do all kinds of films like Special 26 and OMG: Oh My God!. It's just that whatever you like, you go ahead and do it," he said.
"My next film Holiday is based on something very different...I am so excited about this film, but I can't open up right now. It's about sleeper cells which you guys have never heard of," Akshay said.
Holiday, which also stars Sonakshi Sinha, is a remake of 2012 Tamil superhit film Thuppakki, which featured Vijay and Kajal Aggarwal.
Akshay says he wants to do more of character-driven roles.
"I would love to do character-driven role, but people are more focused on commercial cinema. These kind of films don't come quickly. But such roles have to come to me. I am looking forward to it," he said.
