"Winning a certificate or a medal is a very big achievement, but don't you think receiving money is more practical? Because I see that several people who participate, a lot of them are from poor families," Akshay said.
Akshay's Rustom released alongside Hrithik Roshan's Mohenjo Daro. Akshay emerged as the winner as Rustom has earned over Rs 49 crore in the country
Teasing his fans and followers with what they should expect from Crack, Akshay also shared a poster of the movie.
On when the film will go on floors, Akshay said, "I don't know as the script has to be ready"
"My problem is that I don't go with the trend. So probably, I am the wrong person to be asked. I will make films which I want to. If something excites me, I will do it, otherwise I won't," said John Abraham
Akshay Kumar has found a viable space for himself outside of the action-hero persona that was created nearly a quarter century back
Twitter was filled with the customary good wishes for each star ahead of Friday - a relief if not for Hrithik, then for his fans because the past week has seen Mohenjo Daro largely ignored as a carefully orchestrated celebrity campaign endorsed Akshay's film.
Movie-goers are in for a history lesson this weekend as two period films - Mohenjo Daro and Rustom - release today
"We have made arrangement of free screening of Rustom (one show at each multiplex) on August 15 to celebrate spirit of freedom," District Magistrate of Lucknow said
"It was easy to put my faith in his vision the second time over," Hrithik said about director Ashutosh Gowariker.
Despite errors in Akshay Kumar's look as a Naval Commander - his stripes are wrong and he wears a moustache without a beard, not allowed until 1971 - I was intrigued by Khiladi Kumar's new subject, not just because the uniform got me but because he was bringing to the screen the life and times of Commander K M Nanavati
Actors Salman Khan, Ranveer Singh, Sidharth Malhotra, Varun Dhawan have promoted Rustom on social media already
