Bollywood actor Suniel Shetty was recently asked if he feels insecure about his Hera Pheri co-star Akshay Kumar’s success. The actor said that he doesn’t like being under pressure and that he feels comfortable in his own zone. However, Suniel admitted that Akshay is the one who still inspires him to stay focused. 

In an interview with Bollywood Bubble, Suniel said, “Not at all because I don’t take the pressure. I have a world of mine so beautiful that I feel probably they would have missed out on it. I don’t know. I am happy when it comes to a lot of things that I have done and am doing in my life.”

The actor acknowledged his failures and added, “I am someone who’s always been very comfortable in his own space. My success? The film spoke for itself. Failure? I took the blame for it. Wrong choices, emotional choices.” Suniel also said that both Akshay and Ajay Devgn inspire him to this day. “I wasn’t probably focused when I was working. Probably I didn’t pay heed to the scripts that I was hearing or I believed I was larger than life,” the actor said. 

The Hera Pheri actor also said that his lack of focus was a mistake. “That’s a mistake. But if that can rub off on my children… Ahan is sitting back, thinking for the second film he will deliver at the right time,” he concluded.
