Akshay Kumar is the undisputed actor of comedy-action films these days. Namastey London, Heyy Babyy, and Bhool Bhulaiyaa were all hits, and the actor is in demand like never before. He is now gearing up for the release of Studio 18's 'Welcome', releasing on December 20.
"Earlier, everyone said I was synonymous with action. I bagged the khiladi tag. Now with my last few films being successful comedies, I've become synonymous with comedy," the actor laughs, adding, "I'm happy that the three comedies I did this year had the box-office laughing. Welcome is the king of them all! It's a laugh-riot from the word go and I hope everyone enjoys it during the festive season as it is my last major comedy of 2007."
What about rumours that he is bidding adieu to comedy? "Not at all! Comedy comes as naturally to me as action!" the actor stresses. "Next year I have a variety of films on the anvil. I am getting back to action with Chandni Chowk To China and Tashan. For now, I want everyone to concentrate on Welcome and welcome the New Year with a bang!
