In a recent interview to a leading website, Akshay Kumar said that in today's time, it's really important for a star and his movie to cross 100 crore mark otherwise he will not get new films. He also said that to be an actor, one needs to be passionate; and to earn money, one needs to be bankable. According to Akshay to be a star is the most difficult thing because a star sells his soul everyday and every minute to survive in the film industry.
However, Akshay says that he does not care much about the ratings. His ultimate aim is to make people laugh through his movies.
