Why Akshay Kumar Doesn't Care How Much Holiday Earns

Holiday, which releases on June 6, is a remake of Tamil film Thuppakki

Highlights

  • Actor Akshay Kumar, who is gearing up for the release of his new film Holiday, says he is more bothered about the people's reaction to the film than its box office performance.
  • On being asked about people's expectations from the film, the actor said: "Let's not talk about the expectations (success) from the film. It is a very serious film dedicated to the Indian Army."
  • "I am not talking about the business. Whether it (Holiday) will earn Rs 100 crore or Rs 50 crore, I am more interested in how people take (to) this film and how seriously they talk about it."
  • The 46-year-old, who has worked in numerous Bollywood films, has given two Rs 100 crore blockbusters, Housefull 2 and Rowdy Rathore. But from Holiday, he expects that every person who watches develops a respect for people in uniform.
  • "It (the film) showcases a lot of issues and causes for which every youngster, every Indian should watch it and understand," the actor, who plays a dedicated army officer, said.
  • "We should not take people who wear uniform for granted. Even a traffic police officer, who is standing outside and controlling the traffic should not be taken for granted. I think it is very essential that we respect any form of uniform," he added.
  • Holiday, produced by Vipul Shah and directed by A R Murugadoss, features Sonakshi Sinha as the female lead. Presented by Reliance Entertainment, it will hit the theatres on June 6.
