I became my director’s actor for Baby : Akshay Kumar

I became my director’s actor for Baby : Akshay Kumar
Akshay Kumar says he completely relied on his director Neeraj Pandey while playing an undercover agent in their upcoming film Baby.

Akshay, 47, who has played law enforcement officers in his earlier films like Holiday, Rowdy Rathore, Ab Tumhare Hawale Watan Saathiyo among others, said he went to the sets of Baby as a newcomer. It is Akshay’s second collaboration with Pandey after Special 26.

“I didn’t do any special preparation for the film because I was asked not to. If I would have prepared there would have been a clash with the director.

“I completely relied on Neeraj and his script. I generally give my suggestions to directors but in this film I completely listened to him. In a nutshell, I became my director’s actor for playing Ajay Singh Rajput,” Akshay told PTI.

Baby is an upcoming Indian espionage thriller which has an ensemble cast of Rana Daggubati, Anupam Kher, Danny Denzongpa, Taapsee Pannu besides Akshay. The film, which deals with terrorism, is scheduled for a January 23, 2015 release.

“Baby will tell people how to be aware about terrorist activities. These kind of films just make people vigil,” he said.

“Baby has been shot in just 45 days and we completed Special 26 in 32 days. It’s a good thing for an artiste because his time is not getting wasted and you also get out of the character quickly.
Generally, an actor gets bored after shooting for 50 to 60 days,” he said.

In the film, Akshay shares a bad relationship with Kher unlike their roles in Special 26.

“For the first time we have shared such a different relationship in a film. Mine and his viewpoints don’t match and we just hate each other in the group, which is on a secret mission,” he said. After Baby, Akshay will be seen in Karan Johar’s Brothers, Airlift and Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s
Main Gabbar.
