People look down upon comedy: Akshay
Actor Akshay Kumar says even though it is hard to make people laugh, comedy genre is looked down upon by the people.
Akshay, who is making a comeback to his favourite genre with choreographer-director Prabhudheva’s Singh Is Bling, feels comedy is yet to get its due credit.
“People look down on comedy. Even at the award nights, there should be an award for best comedy actor. Comedy is one of the best <g data-gr-id="81">genre</g>, but we have not seen it so far.
“It is wonderful that people are making different comedy films. It is tough to make and be a part of comedy films. <g data-gr-id="85">Comedy</g> will get its due,” Akshay told reporters here at the promotional event of the movie. Singh Is Bling is an upcoming action-comedy film produced by Grazing Goat Pictures. The film also features Amy Jackson, Lara Dutta and <g data-gr-id="84">Kay Kay</g> Menon in pivotal roles.
Akshay said Singh is Bling is not a sequel to Singh is King, it is a different film and in the genre of Rowdy Rathore. “It is a masala family entertainer. It has comedy, thrills and family values. In the film, my character is scared of his father... He follows, does things what his father asks him to do. My character has problem to have focus in life,” the actor said.
