Akshay Kumar should be renamed as the Bollywood King. The actor has 6 movies lined up when none of the Khans' and the Kapoors' in the industry have these many films in their kitty.
When asked about him being so ahead of others, he said, "I am not interested in such stories that suggest I am better than the Khans or they are better than me. It's nothing like that. We all are one and we are all are part of the same industry."
He added, "I would want everybody's films to work because our Industry needs more and more money to make better quality films. I do not believe in competition."
