Superstar Akshay Kumar says that it is not mentally draining or taxing to do three to four films a year since he enjoys the numerous perks associated with stardom.
Asked at a press interaction for his upcoming action comedy “Singh Is Bliing” whether it was mentally draining to switch from one film to other numerous times over a year, Akshay said: “Not at all. I don’t know all that and I’m not that kind of actor who’ll talk about these things. Let’s talk about the real practical thing. We get nice air-conditioned vanity vans to sit which has fruits and dry fruits. We get to work with lovely ladies. So, it is not taxing.”
Akshay terms as “fake” actors claim about getting completely drained after doing a film. He told journalists that the next time they hear a similar line, they should know that the person is lying.

“Singh is Bliing” is Akshay’s fourth film this year after “Baby”, “Gabbar Is Back” and “Brothers”. He also has three films already lined up for next year which includes, “Airlift”, “Rustom” and “Housefull 3”. Asked if these back-to-back films are demanding for him, he quipped: “Do I look tired to you? Do I look physically stressed out? Do I look ill to you?”
Akshay’s fourth film next year could well be “Namastey England” directed by Vipul Shah. But he said that the shooting is likely to start in April and was clueless about the release date. Asked if this film could be his final project of next year, he said: “I’m waiting. Why can’t it be five?”
“Singh Is Bliing” directed by Prabhudheva also stars Amy Jackson and Kay Kay Menon among others.
