He reportedly said in an interview,,”I love comedy. It is a difficult genre to do but unfortunately comic hero doesn’t get his due in this industry because we look down on it.”
Akshay is admired by fans and critics for his remarkable hit comedies like “Hera Pheri”, “Welcome” and “Singh is King” but the superstar feels an actor does not get the deserved recognition until he or she does romantic and heavy-duty movies.
