Akshay Kumar will be next in The Shaukeens.

Akshay Kumar says he can't do films like Rowdy Rathore again and again because he gets 'bored'

Actor Akshay Kumar says the Rs100-200 crore clubs in Bollywood do not excite him as an actor anymore.

The 47-year-old star, who is behind hits including Entertainment, Holiday, Special 26, OMG - Oh My God! , says he wants to take risks as a producer-actor.

"I do four films in a year. And I do that quite easily and I get a lot of holidays. I always reach on time on sets. So why shouldn't I do four films? I like to do new things in films. I don't look out for Rs 100-200 crore clubs. I love to take on risky stuff that I see as creatively satisfying." Akshay will start his next project with Karan Johar.

Titled Brothers, the film also has Sidharth Malhotra. "I am going to start my schedule in Brothers. I have lost about 10-kg for this role. Sidharth has gained 10-kg. He has bulked up and is looking great. And as his brother I am supposed to look weak in front of him," he said.

Akshay, who would be seen in a guest appearance in his upcoming production venture The Shaukeens, says he does not want to do hero-centric films as he is bored of such films.

"I don't want to do only hero films. I have to change myself because I get bored. I just can't do films like Rowdy Rathore again and again. There are films like Gabbar, Baby and Airlift where I will be seen in different roles," he said.

The Khiladi star has wrapped up the shooting of director Neeraj Pandey's action-thriller Baby in just 32 days. "Neeraj has worked on the film for one and a half years and he must have made 10-12 drafts of the film. He has completed the film in total 50 days," he added.
