Akshay Kumar, who returns to the action genre after seven years with Rowdy Rathore
, confesses that he had to put in a lot of hard work while shooting dance sequences as director Prabhu Deva's steps were very difficult.
"Whatever he tells me, I go and rehearse it. We start rehearsing one week before. His steps are not so easy that you can do it immediately on the sets. Whatever steps he tells me I practice it and then do it finally," Akshay, who is a good dancer himself, said.
He was talking on the sets of the TV show Dance India Dance
where he appeared to promote his film.
