Akshay Kumar: Not Every film That Priyadarshan and I Do Is a Comedy

Akshay Kumar: Not Every film That Priyadarshan and I Do Is a Comedy

Akshay Kumar is quite happy with the good vibes and review of Khatta Meetha. It is a safe and sound bet at the box office due to its content. He answers a few queries and clarifies a few doubts that people have about the movie

Priyadarshan said that the film is more drama and less comedy. Is it true?

Absolutely. There is a lot of drama as this is no happy-go-lucky slapstick comedy. This film has more emotions than I have performed in a long time. Priyadarshan has made a wonderful movie and people from all walks of life will be able to appreciate it. Well, as long as they have a heart that is and a funny bone

Are you and Priyadarshan upset tht the film is being marketed as a comedy?

It’s very hard to make people understand that not every movie that either I do or Priyadarshan does has to be a comedy. He has every right to feel upset. This is his movie and he wants people to walk in knowing what they are going in for. Everyone knows that there is nothing more disappointing than paying to see a movie that doesn’t fulfil you. When I want to see an action packed film, I expect to see some action and not come out crying without knowing. Believe me, Khatta Meetha is deep and funny and common and dramatic.

Khatta Meethas has been sold at a low price compared to most Akshay starrers Since you are the producer, it looks like you have a winner already

There was no need to make a high budget movie. It’s about a common man and common everyday problems. It’s not an Avatar or Blue kind of a film. We are not trying to change cinema with this one; we just want to tell a story and make you feel things that you haven’t felt for a while. The economics of the film are simple. What we needed visually, we got and paid for. We sold it for what was right and the rest isn’t written yet.

What do you want to say about the RK Laxman controversy that  involved you last week?

I really don’t want to get into it. What was said was extremely distasteful.. I was officially invited to visit Mr RK Laxman by his wife and the Times Of India. Even they feel bad for the outcome of such an innocent visit. But as always I can’t, in fact no one can stop people from saying or writing what they want. Also, it’s not the first time that Twitter has been the cause of problems. All one can do is deal with it, and move on. I am thankful to Amitabh Bahchcan for having given me support; he is such a big role model for all of us.
